Use the Notification and Quick Setting Panel on Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Edited by Jmgf, Lynn, Eng, Maria and 3 others

Despite of the almost identical features that the Samsung Galaxy Note3 has in common with other large smartphones, such as the other Samsung S series devices, the difference with this new Samsung Galaxy Note3 lies in the way by which the users can configure the power or quick menu setting in the primary notification. It has indicating lines separating the primary notifications from the secondary ones in order to make it more visible for its users and provide more user flexibility and benefit.

I'm actually trying to figure out how to remove ADS that suddenly started appearing on my Samsung Galaxy Note3?

I'm actually trying to figure out how to remove ADS that suddenly started appearing on my Samsung Galaxy Note3! One website said to hold down on "Notifications" and it would tell me which app is causing the ads, but I don't know where or how to "hold down" on notifications. I'm not sure what they're asking me to do. I have scanned for malware, and can't find any. . . IS YOUR SERVICE FREE?. I have tried: I am currently running CCleaner to see if that helps.. I think it was caused by: I have no idea! One day my phone was fine. I've had it for 2 1/2 years. Then suddenly when I wake it up, there are ADS floating on the screen! Even before I can unlock my phone, I have to swipe these stupid ads off the screen!!! They have even popped up WHILE I'm writing something in Facebook AND when I'm trying to answer a phone call!
