    I would like to use the Samsung Clock app as an alarm but have encountered many issues. Primarily, if I touch the phone at all once the alarm sounds it automatically snoozes or just turns off. I'm a heavy sleeper and rely on the few seconds it would typically take to open the phone and swipe the "zzzz" to wake me up a bit. That and I rely on the snooze actually working as it often takes a few alarms before I actually wake up fully.

    As it stands, the alarm goes off, I reach for the phone and the second I move it at all it either snoozes (if I'm lucky) or just turns the alarm off (totally useless in my case).

    Ideally I would like the alarm to sound, I would then open the phone (I uses Clear View case), and then swipe the app to activate the snooze feature reliably. This few moments of thought helps get my mind working normally. It is also how it always worked in previous versions before I upgraded to an Galaxy S8.

    I don't have this issue. I have to swipe to get it to shut off. I also have a very light sleeper wife next to me so I have to swipe it quickly.

    I have the Samsung sview cover and first time I used the alarm I opened the cover and accidentally turned it off. Later I realized that just lifting the top cover, and let go of it, puts it in sleep mode. To turn it off I had to open the cover and swipe it off.
    So try that op, it's very easy and works with your eyes closed.
    When you're awake enough you can swipe it off.

    Move the phone to a place you have to get out of bed to turn it off. Then you are up and ready to go!

    I use Timely as my home page clock and my alarm. It can be set up to require some kind of puzzle to turn off the alarm. I believe the same can be applied to snoozes. And most, if not all, of these features can be applied to individual alarms.

    Just push the power button or one of the volume keys to snooze.
