    I just traded in my Droid for the Galaxy S7. Nice phone but I can't figure out how to open notifications/messages from the lock screen. Used to be able to double click on any notification on the screen on my Droid. Can't do that anymore as far as I can see.

    You can check out samsung good lock. I have 15 apps on the lock screen that are easily accessed. When it first came out I didn't like it. It is now more customizable, being able to change the colors of it, I am pleased with it currently.

    I have fingerprint lock on. What happens is I press the notification, then with it highlighted, I unlock using fingerprint and it opens straight to the app with the notification.

    Highlighting incoming messages just sends me to the permissions page for that app.

    Your situation is kind of odd. Can't even replicate it.

    double clicking on a notification does nothing. Long pressing on a notification opens up the permission settings for that app.

    Solved. I was using google messenger app. Will not work as I want it to on the Galaxy 7. Changed to the stock message plus app and it works fine.

    Still weird. I'm using Google Messenger and I don't have your issue. Are you on the latest update (June Security patch with 300mb update size).
