Prevent your Galaxy S7 Screen from Turning on in Your Pocket

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is equipped with the new Always-On Display and the owners love it. This means that information such as time, notifications, calendar and so on are shown on the display. Now it makes little sense that the display is activated, when you carry the Samsung Galaxy S7 in the pocket or purse.

Anyway, we’ve all been in the frustrating situation where we’ve placed our phone in our pocket, then removed it a short while later only to find that it’s acting out on its own. There are many times when the screen of a Samsung Galaxy S7 turns off in the dark when you try to unlock your phone to check notifications or the time.

However, Samsung has thought about a very useful software feature on board its latest smartphones which is dedicated to making this nothing more than an issue of the past. So, you should start with the procedure below to learn how you can prevent it. And be sure that the procedure is very easy:

Prevent your Galaxy S7 Screen from Turning on in Your Pocket:

  1. For the start, you have to enter into Settings from the notification panel or from the app drawers;
  2. Tap Display;
  3. Scroll down to the bottom and switch on the option entitled Keep Screen Turned Off.

That was all! This actually turns of your phones screen when your phone is in your pocket, in case the power button is accidentally pressed. However, it can turn your phone off by mistake at other times too, so disabling it helps to avoid that.

    This advice doesn’t work for my sgs7 (facing in when in my front pocket). Still makes calls, writes short garbage text messages or recently even set an alarm from my pocket. Very iritating. I guess I have to get a screen protector and or face it out in my pocket.

      Yep, me too, seems there’s a bug which causes in pocket power ups then your movement registers on the touchscreen causing all sorts of mess
