    I hope I'm missing something. Samsung thinks it's necessary to give us a notification that the battery is fully charged. On kit Kat it would pop up and then go away, lollipop it stays on the whole time. I use my phone as my alarm clock which displays the time, the time moves every so often to prevent burn in, but that damn battery full notification stays on and motionless, till I swipe it off.

    I know there is a root method to disable that useless notification. Is there another way to block it or at least have it go off in a few seconds.

    The only way I have seen to do it is with root.

    I agree with OP, this is very annoying that you can't turn this off somehow. Happens to me in the car and covers up half of my map.

    This is perhaps one of the most annoying habits that Google and Samsung seem to have. They like to think they are better than everyone so they go ahead and code stupid garbage like this into their software. this is quite annoying as it interferes with any number of legitimate reasons why someone would leave a phone plugged in. The most notable being....I'M BLEEPING SLEEPING YOU FN *****. It even overrides automate-it pro and do not disturb modes. WTF.

    I don't usually root, but if root is found for note 4 lollipop, this would be the only reason I would do it. At least on kit Kat the notification disappeared after set time and just remained in the notification box. That was fine if they really think we need this useless feature, just get it off my screen.

    There is absolutely no need for this crap, picture below.

    It's telling you to unplug your charger. So unplug It and it will go away.

    If you read my first post and you can clearly see in the picture I use it as my alarm clock. Hopefully someone gets root and it will go away permanently.

    Well, on my phone, you can swipe it away. However, it will reappear every time the screen is locked.

    Yes, your understanding this. I know you can swipe it away, but in a dark room you have the alarm display dimmed and then here pops up a very bright notification. At least give us a way to disable it if we want to. Let's hope for root, but not holding my breath. Sucks I have to root phone just for something as stupid as this.

    Does it prevent the alarm from going off? Yes it can be annoying to look at, but I don't get what the issue is. *Kanye shrug*

    It's like a spot light shining in your room. I like android to, but I'm not going to be as they say, a fan boy. Android has stupid issues just like iPhone does. I don't know what the issue is with just making this a feature that can be turned off. I don't need that notification, I can easily look at the battery to see if it's charged, so it's a useless feature IMO, and shines a light in my face in the middle of the night...That's the issue

    Your alarm should still go off and wake you up. My screen is off when I sleep. Why do you need to see your clock while you sleep?

    With the quick charge I plug in when I get home. Zaps to 60% or more while I have dinner or whatever.. Plenty to get through the night. Charge it the rest while getting ready for work. Or find another charge schedule. With the quick charge you don't really have to put it on charger while sleeping for a whole night.

    When my phone hit 100 I didn't get a notification while my screen was off. The charge led changed color.

    I use it as a alarm clock. I like to see what time it is if I wake up to go to bathroom. Wonder why alarm clocks have always had a time displayed, your sleeping why have it displayed.

    People are missing the point, the notification is a useless feature, why should we have to deal with it in the first place, even by putting the phone upside down, it's a useless feature.

    If I want to use it as an alarm clock I do. Everyone seems to be missing that important part

    You are correct, if the screen is off the notification pops up and goes off. But again, using my phone as an alarm clock the screen stays on and then the pop up does not go away, it stays on nice and bright.

    Now you understand this, I don't use battery monitors and I still get the issue. Your talking about third party monitors correct?

    I started this thread to see if there was anything I was missing, I appreciate you commenting and offering advice instead of criticism of why I would want the time displayed as my alarm clock. Anything you find out let me know, I appreciate it, I'll let you know if I figure anything out. Thanks

    The confusion for me was that you are using an app to dimly display the time on a black screen as a bedside clock. When you say alarm clock I think of something you set to wake you up in the morning.

    If I need to see the time I reach over and tap the power button on, check it and turn it off. You could even set it to turn on/off by turning it over I think.

    There are options such as I suggested before to not charge your phone while you sleep. But the problem of a persistent notification is still there.

    Is there a reason Samsung is so adamant about us unplugging at full charge? Is there damage being caused by leaving it since it's a fast charger?

    Samsung is trying to save the planet, by having you conserve energy.
    Its just feel-good, symbolism without substance crap.

    cant turn the phone over when it is on a wireless charger.




    I agree with everyone else. I use my phone on my desk at work as a clock and a window into email whilst doing other things. I also use it on my nightstand as a clock (And yes, from time to time I wake up and want to know what time it is. That could be my old age. But none the less)


    So If anyone at Android sees this, PLEASE let us de-active this feature. Phones charge all night on night stands.
