One UI 6.1 Notification channel

Samsung One UI 5.1 brings an enhanced Always On Display feature, which delivers a stunning user experience. Galaxy users are adequately aware of the Always On Display, while some users may have not activated or customized the function yet.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to access the One UI 5.1 Always On Display, turn it on or off, access additional settings, and edit the appearance. For starters, it’s going to be a big beneficial guide, while users already rocking with AOD on Galaxy can share their setup with us at tip[at]sammyfans[dot]com.

Samsung’s amazing AOD lets you view the clock, battery, and missed phone call/message notifications when the screen is turned off. Despite keeping the screen on all time, the feature uses less power and utilizes the proximity sensor to turn off completely when in the pocket.

With regular improvements, the company made the Always On Display feature more appealing. You can keep it on and show it off to your friends, while the ClockFace app allows you to create a customized clock appearance for the AOD functionality.

Let’s begin the guide:

Access AOD

First, swipe down from the Notification bar, then select the settings Settings icon. Now, scroll to and select Lock screen, turn Always On Display on or off and select the Always On Display switch. To access AOD Settings, select Always On Display and Edit the settings as desired.
