Disable or Customize the Always On Display
An excellent new feature on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge is the Always-On Display. Keeping the screen on 24/7 in a low-power black and white state displaying the time, date and battery life. I love it, but it can be a distraction to some.
Here we'll explain how to customize it, or turn it off. Navigate to settings and find the same "Display" option as our last set of instructions. In here find the options titled "Always On Display" We can simply swipe the top and turn it off, or head to the bottom and customize it.
Samsung has options to add a screensaver, background images, a calendar, or even set "sleep times" where the always on display won't be on. Like at night where owners don't want it glowing while they're trying to sleep. Give it a try, or just turn it off.
However, studies show most users turn on a phone over 150 times a day, often just to check the time. This drains less than 5% battery life during an entire 8-hour work day, and will ultimately save you battery life, so we recommend keeping it on. To each his own though.
