If you own a Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+, you might get surprised at the fact that you can’t power off or restart your phone using the Power button. What? But this is true.

How to Disable Pop-Up Banner Notifications for YouTube on Android

Android has various options for notifying you about updates and events in apps. They act and feel different. Say, you may be totally okay to receive notifications in the shade, but at the same time you may severely dislike the pop-up banners appearing at the very top that can prevent you from tapping on this part of the screen in other apps or even on your home screen. The upper part of your screen will be simply unusable as long as the banner shows up. Besides that, you can be in the middle of tapping on something at the top of your screen when suddenly floating notification arrives and ultimately you tap on the banner instead of what you wanted to touch initially.

Ringtone Playing but The Screen is Off – Fix Call Issue on Galaxy S10, Note 10

Galaxy S9 turned off screen

Here is what to do if your Galaxy S10, S9, Note 10 or any other phone running Android 9 with One UI keeps the screen off when somebody calls you.

I faced the problem after June 2019 update on my Galaxy S9. The thing is I use Do Not Disturb mode almost all the time to silence callers that are not in my Contacts (I configured the DND feature to ring calls and messages from numbers that are in contacts). Everything was okay but, after I installed the update the behavior of my phone changed. When my wife called me I noticed that my Galaxy S9 now plays ringtone me but the display remains completely turned off. I have to manually wake my phone, unlock it, then pull down the shade and tap the Phone app banner to bring it to front. It goes without saying that these steps are very inconvenient and make no sense. Keep reading to know how I fixed the problem.
