Samsung for a while now to be issued with a notice of notice, as do other manufacturers, when it comes to bringing their phones to the market. As always, we can keep track of notifications in Display On Display mode, even though this is limited to a specific level of activity.
Developers are taking note of this, and have named apps that try to take over Samsung's operations. AodNotify is a great example of this, an app that allows us customize Always In Display mode, as well as visually displaying notifications we have over the phone.
This is how aodNotify works
AodNotify is an app born in the hands of a member of the XDA developers and has some very interesting functions. Valid on all Samsung phones with OneUI 2.0, from the Galaxy S20 to, for example, mid-range like the Samsung Galaxy A51.
First, the application allows it select different styles to emulate the notification LED. We can make a hole in the screen to illuminate, make a recent turn of the device or measure each LED with a LED in the notification line. The interesting point here is that This works in AOD mode and screen, (we can choose whether we want it to run constantly or only in ODA mode) so we will always know whether we have it or not.
The app lets you choose which apps are displayed, select colors for each contact, change the size of the elements and use different types of notifications.
In addition to allowing us to select "LEDs" for notifications, the app allows us to configure AOD mode more closely, since it works more than that AOD. We can choose which apps appear and don't work, give a particular color a contact, adjust the information size from Display On Always mode, etc.
In short, we can completely customize the AOD mode beautifully and systematically. The main limitation, however, is that if we want to see the full text of the notifications (really useful work), we have to get out. However, we were checking out this free version and it's great improve in relation to the reality of Always On Display from Samsung.
And notice, on the developer side, that he wanted to share some numbers about most likely application. This will depend on the size of your device and the brightness of your screen and other factors, but the app considers not spending a fortune every hour of use.
