Notification reminder is exactly what I want in my Xperia model. Possible through Third party?

The Black Edition theme is actually Grey and not totally black. Not sure how useful it is.
Anyone has answers?

Material dark is grey, I guess black edition is black (with some issues as black text not visible on black).

Am using the Black Edition theme.
Go to a pitch dark room. You will notice nothing is completely black.

There are some pure black themes.

And even dark grey is useful for AMOLED, since the LEDs are dimmer.

Condensed DPI and the Galaxy Lights app are the two best things that ever happened to my S7e. I knew about them before this article, but everyone should learn of their existence!

I love the auto restart feature but sadly it is not available on my Verizon Galaxy S6.

The best part of Galaxy button lights is that you can configure your settings and uninstall the app and it keeps your settings.

SOS feature is cool and one of those things you never think about unless you need and then you NEED it. Requires use of the stock sms app though.

Smart alert is cool and I really like it. Keeps me from turning my screen on to see if I have a missed message which could make up for any battery drain it may have I suppose. I have LED indicator on for all messages, but Smart alert will vibrate if it's an SMS and only led will blink if it's an email.

my s7e did restart itself two times since I 've got it , one of them while using google chrome stopped responding for a couple of seconds and then restarted . Hopefully because of an app , you may want to check the last apps you 've installed maybe they are causing the restart .

Check out "Display Scaling" on play store for the dpi trick, simple and easy
