Ex-iPhone user can can’t believe Android doesn’t offer such a basic function?

FINGERPRINT SENSORS AND SMARTLOCKS
Depending on your configuration, this app may need the Device Administrator permission.
To implement several (optional) features, Glimpse Notifications may need to turn off the screen. This happens with a delay imposed by Android and smart locks such as fingerprint sensors will keep working. Alternatively, the app may be registered as a device administrator. The screen is then locked immediately, but fingerprint sensors and other smart locks will no longer work.

Glimpse Notifications user reviews :
I purchased an LG G7, and Ambient Display isn’t an option on this device. Glimpse filled that gap in features for me. No problems, no big battery drain, as far as I can tell, and works flawlessly.
Awesome app. Resolved the notification problem on my S10 and more for the Pie and Samsung One UI. Want to say ‘Thanks’ to the creator and keep up the good work. You guys rock!!
