I've currently got it set as below:

AOD not visible - Nothing is shown on my AOD except led notification (fingerprint is also hidden)
AOD Brightness max (otherwise the led notification is too dim)
Notification light - 8hrs
Notification preview - off
Effect - Blink Eco
Show - 10x
Pause - 5 seconds

I still notice a fairly high usage for battery even though I've pretty much limited the settings. Is there anything better I can do without crippling the app too much? Does the Led dot use less battery than the camera ring style?

Strike that - it had nothing to do with app. It looks like OneUI redesign has changed the look of Always-On Display itself in a way that it reminds the preview screen of aodNotify...

Last few versions have started quite unwanted behaviour, that I could not find a way to stop - clearing app data and setting everything up again does not help and reinstallation does not either.

I use aodNotify with very simple settings - no notification preview screen, just turn on AOD as-is when notifications arrive and mark everything cleared when phone is unlocked.

Now to the problem - no matter how settings are set I always get a notification preview screen which stays on instead of plain AOD view. Other thing is that aodNotify does not clear these active previews even when phone is already unlocked and screen goes to sleep again...

    You need a notification light / LED for your Galaxy S20? With aodNotify you can easily add a notification light / LED directly to Samsung's Always On Display!

    You can select different notification light styles and show the notification light around the camera cutout, screen edges or even simulate an notification LED dot in the statusbar of your Galaxy S20! As the notification light is integrated in Samsung's Always On Display it has minimal battery consumption and doesn't drain your battery like other apps which keep your phone awake!

    If you don't need the Always On Display, the app can also activate the Always On Display (AOD) only on notifications or show the notification light / LED even without the Always On Display!

    With the notification preview feature you can directly see if you have important notifications without waking your Galaxy S20!

    • Samsung may block this app with future updates!
    • Please check if the app is compatible before updating phone software or always on display!
    • Altough we never experienced any screen burn in issues on our test devices, we recommend to not keep the notification light / LED active for a long time! Use at you own responsibility!
