Screen saver

Screen savers entertain us while our phones go to sleep. The good news is there are so many to choose from on your Note8. When your phone is in standby mode and is docked or charging, the screen saver will automatically display colors and photos on your screen using the Android Daydream feature. Pick a fun screen saver from an array of choices.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
