Galaxy Note8: How do I use the notification panel on my Samsung Galaxy Note8 (SM-N950W)?
In today’s world, it’s all about staying plugged in. Make sure you never miss a text or call by checking out the notification panel on your Note8. You can view recent messages and access functions on your phone.
Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
