4. Adjust Always On Display (AOD) Settings On S7 Edge

This is a all new feature ever seen in any of the smartphones in the market right now! This AOD feature makes use of only certian pixels on the screen to show information such as time, battery, notifcations, etc. Since the display uses only certain pixels of the screen the power consumtion is very low and hence this feature will not effect the screen-on time of the device.

You can enable and disable this feature by nativating to Settings > Display > Always On Display > (Toggle On/Off). You can also select the content which you want to see on the AOD by selecting them in the “Content to show”.

These were just a few of the awesome powerpacked features of the S7 Edge. This device is priced at Rs 40,000(approx.) in India, which is a very heavy price tag and most of the people cannot afford it. What stay back? When you can go for a refurbished phone which comes with the same features and is as good as a new one and comes with a low price tag.
