    So I and I'm sure many others use there phone as an alarm clock. On my Samsung phone there was no charging screen no night clock nothing. But on this it's got an annoying add and shows the charge rate. Then when my alarm goes off I have to unlock the phone on that charge screen then drop down my notifications then the alarm.... Any way to turn this off?

    With a better alarm app, probably.

    What's the "charge screen add thing"? Security screen?

    I was gonna ask the same question. I don't have any issues with the alarm when charging. When the alarm goes off I swipe left for snooze and right to stop.

    Well seems to only happen when I'm using the turbo charger it's the same weird add /lockscreen as my wife's s6 but last night I used my Samsung fast charger wall plug then a type c cord and never got the new lock screen lol so maybe it just comes on when turbo charger is used I'll try and grab a screen shot next time. Alarm worked fine this morning

    Did you restore from your old phone? It might have pulled an app you were using and that might be what you are seeing?

    Turn off Daydream in Settings > Display, maybe? The alarm works fine on mine while locked (PIN or fingerprint) and plugged in.

    I get the same thing. Mine alarm goes off and I see an advertisement on the screen. It's annoying.
    Did you find a final solution/reason?

    So I just figured it out. Daydream being off does not work. It's the turbo charging. In the upper right hand corner there is a selection for it so I basically just turn that off ...no more ads.

    Turning off turbocharging? That's still odd... I don't see a screen with an ad whether turbo charging or not...

    It sounds like a similar issue to this person with a Z Play. Their issue was an app that was added to their phone

    Do you guys who are experiencing this problem use ES File Explorer? There's actually a setting with a recent update on that, which causes ads to hit your screen when charging. It's really highly annoying that this setting gets turned on by default. I don't remember the exact setting, but go to your ES File Explorer settings and you'll find it.

    Found a solution from this thread: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...eared-gn4.html

    Uninstalled ZCamera and the ads went away. No idea what that program does/did, but if it enables those kinds of ads I don't want it anyway.
