Just a few of my musings since my Note 8 was upgraded to 8.0. I understand the intent to be more transparent and notify you of things you might not be aware of. The notification about 'x' app displaying transparently over your screen is great to have especially if you don't have knowledge of an app doing so. However, if you knowingly have an app that runs at all times, that is trusted to do so, this notification gets ever more obnoxious. Rather than give the option to silence the notification for this app, you are only offered the option to silence this category of notification. Thus, negating the entire premise of the notification. That is just dumb. I should be able to approve this app, and not hear of it again. I should be notified if another unapproved app throws up a transparent overlay though. Ugh. So much for forward progress. This next portion, is a Samsung only grumble. I've had a Samsung account since my Note 2. It backs up and restores SMS, call logs, calendar, contacts, etc. Now on 8.0, it is nagging me day in and day out to grant Samsung new access to my device, where it can do what it wants with my private data. WTH? And saying Decline only makes the notification go away for a few hours. Take my NO and shove it where the sun doesn't shine!
