    it's for notes. You can 'pin' them to your lock screen so you don't have to unlock the phone to read them.

    Good question. I'll have to wait until the wife gets home with her Samsung S7 edge to find the settings.

    Okay here's what I think is going on. Somehow you created a note and pinned it to the "Always on Display". From what I can tell, you have to double-tap to see that note and then you might possibly be able to delete it ... or just by virtue of looking at it, the notification might go away.

    Of course I could get into trouble with those pesky truth in advertising laws. ;)
