Now, one of the best features, that most of you who will get the device soon will notice, is the edge notification, which is a samsung designed minimal popup notification (peek preview).. You can easily Google it and you will know what am talking about. (just Google s8 edge notification)
Something doesn't add up, and i was hoping for someone now or in the near future to find a solution to it. This kind of notification supports third party applications (supports some of what am using), however, taking whatsapp as an example, when you enable the edge notification for always (both when screen is on and while on AOD) it works while the screen is on perfectly, but doesn't work while on AOD. Please note that from testing, this feature is working with few third party apps on the AOD.
I did few testings, the only way to make this minimal edge notification work for whatsapp while on AOD is to enable the pop-up notification in the app, but that will mean once you unlock the device, the pop up of whatsapp (app pop-up) will show up immediately and thats not what i want (very annoying).. I would like to add that i dont need to enable the whatsapp in app popup for edge notification to work while the screen is on.
Am not sure if there is a way of fixing this, but i thought i would put it here for other users to check it out and give us a feedback or a solution (it might be only me, you never know).
In advance, coz i know i will get this question, i got the device officially since few days coz i was an early bird in pre booking (UAE-Dubai) only 300 devices (or so) where officially released for early birds.. The rest will get it by 18th or 19th..
