    Okay, if this has been asked 52 times already, I apologize. On the way out the door but I wanted to pose this question.

    Maybe I was used to the Note 7 AOD but that showed everything as far as notifications. With this S7 Edge, I get nothing. Well, the clock shows but no notifications (meaning sms, gmail, etc). I'm not sure if missed calls show as I haven't had any.

    Is this normal for the S7E? I've go through everything I can think of and all apps are set to notify. I thought I read where there is going to be an update to the S7/S7E AOD but I'm not sure.

    Appreciate any input.

    I think mine shows unread messages. I'll have to keep an eye on it.

    if i remember correctly, the S7 shows SMS and missed calls. it does not currently support any 3rd party apps.

    i read somewhere the plan was to update AOD to a version similar, if not identical, to the one on the Note 7 when the Nougat update gets released.

    of course, that was speculation.

    There was recently and update to AOD that added the clock option where you can add an image, I believe it was last week. Hopefully they will come out with more updates for AOD.

    So SMS through the Samsung messaging app? I use Textra so that may be the reason.

    Yeah, I have the latest then cause I have the option to add an image. Just a bummer deal it's not like the N7.

    Are you using the stock messaging app?

    Mine shows stock SMS app and missed calls. It no longer shows from the stock email app, or how many of the other two there are.

    I noticed that on this last update mine now shows what's currently playing, be it Spotify or YouTube. No control, just the title of what's playing. I also have a photo of my daughter on mine, you can actually add pictures now instead of just using the original 3 "pictures".

    Regarding notifications, i think mine shows an envelope if I have unread emails or texts. The email notification is for Nine since I have the stock email app notifications disabled.

    The recent update kinda ruined it I think. Like someone said it shows media that playing but with no control, missed calls and text's used to have a count, now it only displays the symbol. BTW - the Verizon Messaging app displays missed messages.

    Date, time, my custom logo, and battery.


    It will show an icon for SMS, and it will show whatever song is playing on Spotify which is really nice, but it ahows even after Ive closed the app unless I restart.

    Yes, after the initial excitement and furore of the
    Edge being upgraded to grace (and the Note AOD) it has gone very quiet indeed.

    In usual Samsung fashion we will no doubt wait some time if ever. Could be they're calling the whole 7 series a loss and concentrate instead on the 8.
