How to use notifications on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus
There’s only one simple way to do it and it has to do with a finger move. So, head on towards the right side of your smartphone’s screen and use one finger to move quickly from the left and then back to the right side of the screen.
That’s the move. You might have to practice on it a little bit. If you feel you’re getting it right yet you cannot see the notifications on the edge of the display, perhaps you have forgotten to activate it from the settings?

Go check if it’s enabled and then repeat the move. This time it should work like charm and your S8+ Plus will start pushing messages and other kinds of notifications on the side of the screen, with the display turned off. Isn’t this your favorite feature of Samsung’s latest flagship?
