I'm currently using an LG G3 with Lollipop 5.0.1.
The problem I'm having is that when I'm using an app (or just doing something general on my phone) and I receive a text or similar notification a pop-up shows up on my screen explaining what the notification is. For example, the first sentence of a text, or a snippet of a Facebook post. I know this is normal but the issue is that if I'm currently doing something important and I want to clear the pop-up, if I swipe right (or press the "X") to dismiss the notification it clears it entirely i.e. from the Notification drawer too.
See the example of a situation where this happens, in order to clear up any confusion with my issue:
I'm sending an important email to a coworker when my friend texts me. I don't want to read my friend's text right now but the pop-up still blocks a portion of the screen. In such a situation my options are:
- Wait about 5 seconds for the pop-up to disappear.
- Clear the pop-up so I can resume emailing my coworker (preferred because it allows me to resume typing the email immediately).
The problem with option 2 is that if I clear the pop-up notification all other indications that I received a text are also cleared (meaning the top bar notification & the little red "1" on the messaging app). So if I happened to send a really long email to my coworker, there's a chance I'll completely forget to respond to my friend once I'm done.
So, is there a way to clear a pop-up notification without clearing all other signs of the notification?
