    Maybe I’m simply missing something. But, when you receive a new notification on your Note 5, and your screen is off, does it light up?
    If so, how do I get my Note 5, to perform this feat.?

    Also, I believe I asked this before, but, do you use a double tap to turn the screen on (merely to check for new notifications)?
    If not, what is the best way around always pressing the home button to see what the new notifications are (i.e. a preview)? I know about the LED option, but, I sometimes want to see a quick preview of the notification when it initially comes in.

    Thanks in advance

    Settings -> Personal -> Lockscreen & Security -> Notifications to show notification content on lockscreen.

    Mine lights up when an incoming message appears. If I choose to show content, I simply hit the power button and it tells me who it was from and a small preview of the message.

    Thanks for the info. Currently, I have said settings set up. And, text message do in fact wake the screen.
    However, email doesn't seem to do it, despite the option being set, in Settings, Personal, Lockscreen & Security, Notifications...

    To confirm, I have a Note 5, on AT&T. My missus has a Note 4, on AT&T.
    We both have email (Outlook.com & Gmail, respectively) yet neither of us get a woken screen when we receive email notifications (Exchange and Gmail app, respectively).

    Weird, no?

    I'm not so sure about that.

    I know gmail used to have a normal notification icon and show on my lockscreen on my note 3, but I don't recall it ever waking up the screen.

    This morning, I had a chat with Samsung Mobile support. And, they confirmed that there isn’t a wake option for notifications of email.
    Rather weird really…

    Correct stock there is no way to do this. There are third party apps that can do this though.
