On my old Samsung S4 using the Timely alarm clock, around 30 minutes before an alarm went off there was a notification of upcoming alarm and a dismiss button in the notification. I noticed that the Lux application prevented this notification appearing.

 

On the P9 I get the notification of upcoming alarm, but no option to dismiss the upcoming alarm. You can turn off the entire alarm clock, but then I have to turn it on later so the alarm goes the next day.

 

Does anyone know:

 

  • How to get the notification to show the dismiss button
  • A different alarm clock that includes this feature, or similar?

I'm just trying out the "clock" application that I guess was pre-installed on the P9, so maybe that'll do it.

 

Huawei Emui 4.1 is the heaviest (and worst) Android skin I've used. I'm hoping v5 with Android 7 is better. Notifications seem to be quite broken, for example.

Works fine for me (P9 plus). You have to 'allow' notifications, and you may need to drag down on the notification to see all the options. Don't think that is EMUI specific though.

You can also use a two fingered gesture to expand the notification within the notification panel.

Ah I see now, thanks. Never seen that before on S4 or Cyanogenmod.
