Handy and decent ! It responds accurately , looks good and supports almost for all apps . Pros: 1. Battery friendly notifications 2. Looks good on black unlit background. 3. Displays only necessary content. 4. It's so addictive that ,after a few month use u barely use the power button to unlock your phone ! Cons: 1. If you have multiple notifications there's no way to review the previous ones without unlocking the phone !! 2. The blink frequency when there's no notification is a bit low,it could be user controlled!
Awesome, awesome feature. A little issue though. I love Active Display. It has become an integral part of my daily phone use and I love it more every day. Now, I am noticing a little bug. When I get a text message, it flashes on and off randomly and notifies me of one message over and over again. When I'm on the home screen, it doesn't do this. Otherwise this app is very cool and super useful.
Motorola Droid MAXX Everything works fine, love the general use of it and is really handy but... At times the clock is glitchy and it's like it's erased in some areas... Happens every 3 out of 10 times the active display is on... I understand it being a super AMOLED display and only certain pixels light up when needed... Besides I know that X8 chip is a Best I just have that only issue.
Good, but could be better This is half the reason I got a Moto X in the first place. However, the recent update turned off vibration. While active display is fantastic, it could be more customizable. Maybe add an option for vibration in the settings? Perhaps also an option for the refresh rate of the display? Adding more options for customizability would make this a million times better.
How could it better? Be a perfect replicate of the normal lock screen but black and white and minimalistic. No lock screen widgets but notifications instead. And phone will progressively become colorful while unlocking. This is retarded to have two steps unlock sorry. But awesome to have smart display thanks!
Love it, BUT- This simple feature is handy to have! I love it and wouldn't want to go back to not having it! A couple things I'd like to see since third party apps have them are notification duration and color settings, a gesture to clear one notification at a time (like swipe one way to clear them all and swipe the other way to clear only the current notification), and also the ability to cycle until you see the one you want to open. Also since update, it seems android os is gobbling my battery life. Any connection?
This update to Active Display now includes the following:
