Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: How to Set and Use Always on Display (AOD) Feature in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

With the always on display(AOD) feature, now you just need to glance at your phone each time you want to check your latest notifications(number of missed calls and text messages) and other information(date/time, calendar, battery percentage, or image) without you have to wake the screen. Those notifications and information are clearly displayed on the standby screen and easy to see, but keep using the minimum brightness so you don't have to worry that it'll drain your battery even when you set to use this feature a whole day. But, you have to remember that the AOD feature will not be displayed if the night clock feature is enabled and will also be disabled automatically when the battery level is below 5%.
