    Alright. I've been all over google and haven't found an answer to my question:

    Is there any way to set my Note 8 to tap to answer/dismiss versus swipe to answer/dismiss? My Galaxy S7 could do that. If the Note 8 is so advanced, where is tap to answer?

    I keep reading this is possible, then the conversation collapses into a discussion about apps that can do this because the OS doesn't have that function anymore. Now, I need a real answer. I hate swiping all the time because it seldom works for me.

    Please help me get a real solution to my issue...

    You know? I had the Note 8 and can't answer that question. I'm trying to remember. I guess I wasn't able to, no. One positive suggestion I can make is to contact Samsung directly for their take on this LINK

    You can set the vol up button to answer a call - maybe that would help you?
