Ever since I updated my mobile to Android Version 6.01 I get notifications regarding my phone being on silent... This only happens when I plug it onto charge.

Its rather annoying that it keeps telling me this for two reasons:

A: The phone is on Vibrate not Silent

B:I chose to put it on vibrate I don't understand why it needs to keep telling me this.

The same applies for when I leave battery saver mode on, it tells me its on and that the performance is effected. I leave it on battery saver for a reason...

Is there any way to disable these "Helpful" Messages in the settings as I cannot for the life of me find a setting that references this, even in the developer mode. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini if that provides any assistance...

  • Not on stock... You would need a custom ROM, although root and Xposed may work as well but I'm not familiar with a module that has these specific features.

  • Does this mean its a feature of the OS itself? Apr 20 '17 at 12:01
  • Somewhat, yes, the battery saver portion I think, but AOSP is not as intrusive... But Samsung adds their own pieces to Android that are in the OS itself, these "features" are part of that.

  • ah see... I have little to no experience with making changes to the OS. I am interested to know how I would go about modifying this on my phone mind. Apr 20 '17 at 12:16

I went into Samsung+ app, went to Settings and turned off Diagnostic Notifications. Have not seen the notification since.

  • I do not have a Samsung Plus App, does this go by a different name? Apr 24 '17 at 7:51

Samsung Galaxy. Following Rick's tip that it was a Samsung app, I disabled the app in the app manager. That worked for me.
