Get Galaxy S7 Always-On Display For Any Android Device

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge launched on 22 Feb come with the latest upgrade of the Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. The TouchWiz may be an infamous UI for its plain and simple interface which makes it a little boring to use. But the latest version of the TouchWiz UI is an elegant piece of work and more productive than before. The latest features like Always-On Display, Scrolling Screenshot and the video recording app make it way better than before.

The Always-On Display feature let’s your device work even when your smartphone is locked. When the device is locked, it can display information like time, date, messages etc with a slightly dim light. However, only Samsung’s stock apps can use the Always-On display screen to display notifications and not the third-party apps. Motorola Active Display and LG’s Always On feature in the LG G5 are examples of Always-On display.
