How to fix edge lighting issue on Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9 Plus:

Edge lighting is a beautiful feature because it keeps the screen illuminated at all the right times and in all the right places but what if it is not serving the very purpose it was created and installed in the phone for. Yes, many a user have complained that the edge lighting just won’t work when the screen is off. But this is not the only issue people have come across so far. Some users also said that on their devices, edge lighting would work only in the stock SMS app and nowhere else. We do have few potential solutions to this problem and everyone suits his own needs and free to try out any one or all of them as long as they work and solve the issue.

Solution (a): The easiest fix is if you turn on the pop up notifications for social apps like Snapchat and the like, edge lighting would start working even if your screen is off. But again this does not mean every user would have his problem solved by applying this technique. It is worth the try though.

(b): Many users, in order to enhance the device’s performance level, simply turn off the Animation duration scale by going into Developer options in the Settings menu and this triggers the Edge lighting problem at times. In order to get the edge lighting getting back to work, you should set the Animation duration scale at 0.5x and the lighting shall work just fine for many users.

(c): Edge Lighting is a paid app which allows you to choose different colours for individual apps and the edge lighting works just fine even with the screen off and all.The drawback here is that this solution is also not a universal one and it does not work with every user’s device. Many people have come forward complaining that the apid for the app but still no luck. And there were some who were happy enough to have paid for the app and got their issue fixed. An official software fix will be the final fix and hopefully it will come out soon.

Hopefully this should solve the edge lighting issue on Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus. Pleas leave us a comment if you still face any problem or if this has solved the your edge lightning problem.
