    Hello,
    I recently bought the new Galaxy S10.
    Edge Lighting works when the phone is on, but not when it is turned off.
    I googled the web for a solution, to no avail...
    Is there, or will there be a fix for this issue?
    Thanks.

    Do you have this setting enabled? Or set to always?

    Never downloaded it..
    Can't say why the Edge Lighting doesn't work when my screen is off.
    I don't think I'm the only user experiencing it.

    Make sure you allow notifications on , but if you get a text or phone call should definitely light up for few seconds

    I have mine set to always but when my screen is off it's on the screensaver so is that why mine doesn't light up?. I just realized this and mine is set to on I never see the lighting around the edge anymore and I used too. I need to double check my settings or it's cause of screensaver maybe.

    I thought you could pick which apps you wanted it to light up for. I don't remember it being stock only.

    You can, and I did.
    What could possibly be the reason for the Edge Lighting not to work?

    Weird cause mine hasn't been working neither. I need to double check. I just realized I had my phone re-flashed. Mine only had 2 apps set to be notified but now I have 9 and Facebook messenger isn't an option I use that a lot.

    Again it works with stock txt. It doesn't so much with non stock apps unless the screen is on and you unlock the screen.

    There is something wrong with the screen edge lighting! Even if you have enabled it to work with all apps, only certain apps will trigger it.



    WhatsApp, Instagram and few others do not work but Snapchat does work.

    Never had this issue with my S9+ after transferring my data from my S9+ to my S10+ it all worked fine till I received the first OTA update.

    It says when you enable the apps some might not work with edge lighting even if enabled.
