    Usually, yes. As we don't know what phone you have it's hard to say more.

    On my Samsung tablet (running 5.1) it's in the notification pull down, or in Settings > Device > Display

    Pull down the Notification bar, it is a slide ruler left to right. there is a check box on the right side for "auto"
    I usually leave mine in 'auto' and it seems to work just fine.

    on a S5 and a Note 4, both work the same. and on the old Galaxy S also.

    Hi

    Swipe down from the top of the screen to see notifications and settings - I think this is the same on all androids..
