    When you have the option(which i like to use for obvious security reasons) on the S8+ at least you have to hit the power button 3 times to look at the notification screen(home button just simply cant go there) i would like to know why this happens now, i font know why, it happened seemingly with no reason, there was no update on my phone, my phone is up to date, it just simply started doing this, please help me fix it

    Welcome to Android Central! Sorry, can you clarify what your question is? Are you saying that when you turn off the screen by pressing the Power button, and then wake the screen (but don't unlock it), you don't see the lockscreen notifications?

    Hi, welcome!
    I'm saying if you don't set it to immediately lock the home screen can set longer if you choose (default is lock in 5 seconds ) also if you turn AOD off you should get to the lock screen quicker

    When i try to turn on the screen but not unlock it the phone automatically goes to the pin screen, doesnt matter if i hit home or power, i want to turn the screen on to look at my notifications, i cant always fiddle with my phone if it isnt something serious, if i turn the setting off then it doesnt do it any more, neither home nor power, i just want it to work like it used to

    okay, while thats cool and all once again i dont think i should have to use that, unless samsung decided to say "the older phones dont get a choice and must mess up this setting" theres no reason why this doesnt work, im just annoyed, honestly im not going to easily change my instinct of "pull phone out turn on" to pull phone out and double tap, im going to try it but that doesnt really fix the problem, never mind, apparently S8+ doesnt have it, at least not in the same place

    You can type in the search bar of settings and find it easier instead of going through menus, if your on andriod 9 (pie) its has some changes then android 8 (oreo) I cant check my s8+ because battery went on it , but my s9+,note9,s10+ and Note 10+ is like this

    Nougat is pretty out of date -- 2 full versions behind what an S8 should be on, and 3 full versions behind the most current (Android 10). I agree with mustang7757, definitely use Smart Switch to see if you can update that way. Your issues might be solved by having a more current Android version.

    If Smart Switch doesn't give you the option to update, then did the phone originate from a different carrier than the one you're using now? Carrier-specific phones typically need to be on that original network to get the official system update over-the-air. Or did someone flash a different firmware on the phone to make it compatible with your region?

    im on a different carrier but even if i need to update that wouldnt explain why there would be any reason a feature would one day stop working properly and just annoy someone with taking away a quality of life feature
