it's mainly just to see what time it is or something...

I didn't make any changes...

I've restarted the phone several times...

I miss that feature.

Jon is sad. Help Jon.

The only other option I recall was to see if you had missed notifications at a glance when reaching for the phone... but that doesn't go to your lockscreen, that's a different kind of lockscreen notification with a very nice animation. :S

How Do I Turn On My Galaxy S5 Screen Without Pressing the Home Button? | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial


For whatever reason, my S5 changes settings on me.....turns wifi off sometimes...turned off air view, turned off scrolling etc....I have to go back into my phone once or twice a month and adjust all the settings....

Tired of this S**T lol

That's odd. The only time I've had a phone with vanishing settings is when I updated something or a phone that would factory reset itself every time it ran out of battery (it was a cheapo LG Android they gave me at work a couple of years ago)

Ummm... not sure why'd you post that here, but I already answered in your original thread :) Unfortunately, the Alpha doesn't have MHL support, so you can't output video via the USB port. Wireless mirroring to a Smart TV or a device like Chromecast is your only option.
