    Hello.....I noticed that when I receive a notification and I view it on my lockscreen it only shows for maybe 5 seconds before it disappears. Is there any way to increase the time so the notification stays on longer? I can just barely read what it is before it disappears. Thank you.

    When I had my S5 I had an app called Floatify from Jawomo and it worked great. It had so many great customizations. Unfortunately the app no longer works with Oreo.

    I don't use that app anymore....it doesn't work on Oreo. I'm talking about going into my settings....notifications...and having notifications for certain apps appear on my lockscreen. Yes...the notifications show up but I don't have a chance to read them because they time out in about 5 seconds or so.

    Not sure I understand, what do you mean by"disappears"?
    Doess the screen goes off? Or does the notification is cleared?

    No I'm talking about which apps disappear from lockscreen too fast.

    Does it happen with every notification? (email, messages, FB, Twitter, etc.)

    Good morning. Yes it happens with my email.....textra (text messages). I'm sure about Twitter. It happens whether I'm using the stock launcher or Nova Launcher. The notifications also will show up as I swipe my notification shade down. That's ok with me but the notification that shows up in the middle of my lock screen only shows for about 5 seconds then disappears.

    If I go into settings....lockscreen and security.....and tap onto notifications......THIS IS THE NOTIFICATION that appears on my lockscreen for only about 5 seconds then goes away. See the attached screenshot.....this the notification that I'm talking about. Thank you.

    Do you have a screen protector or something? That is not normal behavior.

    Yes I do. It's a Invisible Shield glass curve by Zagg. It's made for the S9 Plus. All my Galaxy phones have had a glass screen protector on them.

    Very strange.
    Maybe you have some kind of app that controls notifications?

    I just got the phone a few days ago and it seems to be working good. No issues when I touch the screen.

    I've been trying to figure out how to extend the lock screen notification time as well. It disappears WAY too fast for me to read it.
    Tagging along.

    Try wiping cache system. They aren't supposed to be disappearing unless you swipe them.

    If you are referring to "Wipe Cache Partition", I regularly do this every week. It doesn't extend the notification time.
