Galaxy S9: How To Set Up Always On Display

In case you’ve just found out about the Always On Display feature, you probably don’t know what to expect from it. Your display is on when you’re either on the Lock Screen or on the Home Screen. Does this mean you’ll have the display turned on all the time? And how will that information affect what you’re trying to see on the screen? Is it really the kind of information that you must always have on your display? Should you try it or not? And if you do want to try it, where do you start from?

To all these questions on how and why to set up the Always On Display on your Samsung Galaxy S9 we’re going to answer in this tutorial. And to begin with, let’s just say that the Always On Display only involves the Lock Screen, not the Home Screen. Moreover, it will target an isolated area of the screen and not display the information on the entire screen. And if you’re worried about the battery consumption, we have to say that it doesn’t take much of your battery and it comes with a couple of auto shut-off conditions designed to help with preserving the battery even more.

Then, you can leave the settings, lock the screen, and start seeing it in action. The same path can be used when you want to disable this feature from your Samsung Galaxy S9 but before you get to that point, give it a try. You won’t regret it!
