Can someone explain to me why these phones are so popular? Last weekend, I finally "upgraded" from a Moto Z2 to the Samsung S10+. After LOTS of annoying configurations trying to get it to work the way it should right out of the box, I am still stuck on several important things that just don't work right. The first is that I never hear notifications, unless the notification is spam coming from Bixby or Google. If it's Signal, ProtonMail, Gmail, FB Messenger, WeatherBug, etc. nothing. Silence. Sometimes it will randomly vibrate, sometimes not. But, the vibration is very faint so that does me little good. I did plenty of searches, all useless. Tons of people report such issues, but nothing they recommend helps... reboot, clear cache, turn off adaptive battery, turn off that app going to sleep thing, make sure you actually have notifications on in both the phone and each app, make sure your notification sound is a real sound and not set to "silent", etc. Absolutely nothing. Not a single app I actually want has made a peep since I got it last weekend. The rare beep I hear, I'm excited and go check only to find its one of the built-in spam apps saying something like "Here's how to do such and such with this feature we're sure you don't want but we'll keep annoying you anyway with it and not pay attention to you when you disable this notification". Next is this "always on display". Mine's set for the default of 10 seconds. If I tap the screen, it comes on for 10 seconds. It is so dim it is utterly unreadable. Can't read it at night, in day, or in bright sunlight... all conditions, unreadable. I can tell there are some dim fuzzy icons, text, and a clock there... but that's it. The AOD does not pay attention to brightness setting of the phone in general, so putting that at maximum does no good. AOD does not have its own brightness settings. Everyone online for years have complained about this feature, but no useful replies have I seen. By comparison, my Z2 has a really great display that can be seen when the phone isn't unlocked. I wave my hand over it, and I can see all the notification icons on it... it's great! Oh, and the battery sucks and takes forever to charge. I get out of my car where it was charging at the start of the work day, and when its time to go home it is already below 50%. And 3 hour charge time on a charger that has turbo charge. I'm returning this POS tonight unless someone knows how to fix the notifications. It's kind of useless and will cause marital strife if I'm ignoring my wife because I don't know she sent something.
