    So i got the note 7 yesterday... loving it however why doesnt my screen come on and automatucally give me a preview of a whatsapp or text message that ive received? The screen just stays off and i get a beep so everytime i have to wake my phone just to check what i have recieved. Even the 3210 phones woke and showed who the text was from automatically, what am i doing wrong? I get lock screen notifications but like i said, it stays asleep and doesnt wake (light up screen and show me without me touching it to wake).
    Screen always on is disabled by the way and im running in default screen mode etc.

    Please help! Exynos unlocked version

    I asked the same question and I believe it doesn't do that from the lock screen OR it cannot do it if you have the AOD active. Not sure.

    There are separate lock screen apps I think that allow this. Someone else might know better but I also would like that option as well.

    My s6 is the same. Never thought about it that way. Would be a nice feature to have at a glance. Watching for a solution.

    Good question, I am interested in the answer too (I do not have a note 7 yet, so I can not experiment and help).

    This is the reason I went back to iPhone. No app I found successfully worked 100% to allow notifications to wake my screen and preview the message
