Pin Notes and Reminders to Always on Display
 

The Always On Display feature on Samsung devices shows vital information such as clock and calendar, pending notifications, no. of missed calls and messages all without draining a significant amount of battery power. But how? All thanks to Samsung for their gorgeous and power saving AMOLED displays.

AMOLED is unparalleled by any type of display technology at the moment

An AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes) display lights up individual pixels (hence, the Active Matrix in AMOLED) containing minute Organic LEDs when an adequate or the right voltage current is supplied. As a result, only the pixels required to show colours other than black get lit. The screen completely shuts off the pixels displaying a black colour, thus proudly achieving an infinite contrast ratio and also better power efficiency. In contrast, an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) employs a backlight that is white in colour which is basically an array of conventional LEDs arranged behind the LCD panel that shines light through individual pixels. As a result, regardless of the colour shown, an LCD display’s backlight is always on, falling short in the contrast ratio and power efficiency department.

Speaking of which, there are smartphones out there outed by other manufacturers that employ their own iterations of Always On Display on an LCD. However, an AMOLED is unmatched by any type of LCD. Period.

How to Pin Notes and Reminders to Always on Display on Samsung Devices

To my knowledge Samsung only allows you to display today’s calendar schedule on the lock screen or onto the Always On Display face widgets. However, there is not even an option to permanently display any upcoming schedules neither on the AOD nor the lock screen. Today I would like to show you all on how to pin an upcoming calendar schedule and notes to the Always on Display, though I’m still figuring out on how to pin the same to the lock screen.
