Phone Help - Samsung S7/S7 edge

Compatibility

Light Flow should work on the S7 and S7 edge.

The following phone settings are required:

Light Flow Legacy is required if you want the "always on" screen to work, if using the standard/pro version you'll need to switch it off for the led to work



Android 7 users
The workarounds for Android 6 are not required in android 7, but you may have to clear the apps data if your phone upgrades from 6 to 7.

Go into your phone settings
  • applications
  • application manager
  • Select "Light Flow"
  • Storage
  • Clear data
This will reset the app and should fix issues that some users may be having after the upgrade.

Note you shouldn't need any of the samsung workaround options on in android 7 



Android 6 users
Light Flow, when prompted, make sure you switch the following:
  •  Notification Access (In your phone settings, Lock screen and security->Other security settings->Notification access if Light Flow doesn't prompt)
  • Accessibility  (In your phone settings, Accessibility if Light Flow doesn't prompt)
  • Samsung workaround. When it's enabled the yellow box will show "disable workaround" as it'll currently be enabled.
If you have any apps which allow controlling the LED in their settings, make sure you switch that option off. e.g. Facebook, whatsapp, twitter, Skype all have settings that can be switched off.

Some users are reporting that certain apps will cause the LED to still turn blue. The following are notifications that may cause this, but there may be more

  • SMS
  • Missed calls
  • Email (samsung's email app)
  • Gmail
  • Hangouts
If you get a blue led override the correct led for these then so far the only option seems to be in lightflow to set the "switch screen on" option for these notifications. You can set a small screen on time such as 0.3 seconds which seems to fix the issue.


Side effects of the samsung workaround


Due to the workaround there Are A Few Side-Effects For Light Flow Controlling Apps Where The Native App Is Raising A Notification.

  • You may get duplicate vibrations and sound if using the native app to control them instead of Light Flow
  • If the notification is expandable and has buttons then if the button doesn't launch the app then the notification will persist. For example Gmail shows an "Archive" and "Reply" button. If you press "Archive" the archive process will happen but the notification will still persist. Just swipe away to clear it. For the "Reply" button, when it's pressed enters Gmail to reply and therefore clears the notification automatically. 
  • If an app can normally remotely clear a notification (for example when you view a Gmail on another device) this notification won't automatically clear.
Note that all these side-effects only happen for apps without the option to switch the led off that would normally show one.

Are you still seeing a blue led when you've selected another color?

This will usually when system/stock apps raise a notification such as the messenger app, missed calls etc. Some users have reported that going into lightflow for these notifications and enabling the "Switch screen on" option helps ensure the LED ends up the correct color.

Why do Messenger notifications not always show?

The samsung sms app works a little differently to most other messaging apps.
Try going into light flow, notification settings, SMS and on the first tab set the last 4 options to

  • Off
  • On
  • Off
  • On

as shown in the screenshot above and see if that helps. Note that with these settings contact specific sms notifications will not trigger. If you want them to we'd recommend using a different messeging app such as EvolveSMS which allows you to switch off the LED control in their app.

  1. Wow! I must say, you are very creative and talented because this work can only be done when you are a talented and hard worker. I know how much effort it will take to create because my brother is also very interested in creating such blocks every day, but on some days he is not able to make them because he is too busy finding English dissertation writers to write his dissertation professionally.

  2. Thanks for sharing such detailed information about the Samsung light flow settings. I’m a permanent Samsung but, I didn’t know about all these settings before. I used to complete most of the research work for my academic tasks on my phone. Currently, I have to do my dissertation and for this purpose, I will have to spend long hours on the mobile screen. After reading this post, now I can enable LED settings to protect my eyesight.

  3. I believe this will help your website become more organized because you have decided to set a part on this site for the inquiries regarding tax and as well as the helpful discussions. To be honest, this is one of the few sites that are doing this kind of strategy. Also, I think that this will not only benefit your vapor storm vape Australia clients or the potential ones but you most especially because you will be able to see the questions easier.

  4. This is a fantastic website. It piqued my interest. It's incredible in and of itself, however there were a few sections of the text that catch my attention as a reader. The method in which this paper was given impress me, despite the fact that it had some outstanding concepts.

  11. Samsung's two leads share much for all intents and purposes, yet some key differences. The Galaxy S7 Edge flaunts a more excellent screen and two edges on the surface. The standard S7, then again, has a conventional plan and a more unimposing frame. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are equitably coordinated when it comes to specs. Both U.S. models rock Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors and 4GB of RAM, which bring about expedient execution. The two telephones start at 32GB of capacity and backings expandable capacity through MicroSD cards up to 200GB. Dissertation Writing Services UK

  15. Dissertation writing is actually a tough situation to be in. I never believed it until I had to go through it. But thankfully my laziness didn’t let me go further and I hired someone online to write my Hnd Assignment Assistance. I usually don’t say it out loud but I am so grateful for few people in my life and these experts who provide such services are one of the kind!
