    Does anybody know if the mate 10 comes with an always on display or ambient mode? I had a look online but couldn't find anything so I'm thinking no. When I went from the 6p to the mate 9 I really missed this feature and I'm trying to decide between the pixel 2xl and the mate 10.

    Thanks.

    I was having rouble finding answers on this as well. It certainly has the screen for it. Hopefully we'll find out sooner rather than later.

    The Mate 9 Pro did so I'm HOPING the Mate 10 Pro also does. If it does it will be a done deal for me. That's the biggest thing stopping me completely committing to it right now. If it has double tap to wake as well then I'll be front of the queue on release day

    I don't ever need to use such a feature on my note 8. Just long press on the aod to unlock the phone. Hopefully huawei can implement this

    That works if they have aod. Haven't seen any reviewers talking about the aod tho

    It will take some time but you could probably get used to not using it

    I had my aod turned off to save some battery life couple of times before. But I didn't like it. I'd rather lose a tiny bit more battery life than turning aod off.

    Never had the Mate 9 to test their aod. But I used a 3rd party and on my Honor 8 and the battery drain is noticeable on it. Can't remember how much it drains tho

    I have a Mate 10 Pro review Sample from Huawei (got it from the launch event).

    First things first. This thing has a Always on Display mode in settings to activate (it isn't on by default). The bad news is that there isn't really any settings for it.

    Also it won't show any third party notifications on it. Only Huaweis few own apps.

    And no, there is no double tap to wake

    Third party aod is completely different and not optimized for the phone. On my note 8, the drain is pretty small, but aod was built in.

    Wow that sucks. That's like what Samsung did 2-3 years ago.

    Yep. But this doesn't have final firmware. Although this has had four software updates already and no change. So I would guess that there won't be change atleast in the first official version

    Hopefully it can be added later via software update. I guess Huawei is experiencing whatever problem Samsung was having when they first launched aod. Glad to hear that they are actively working to update the software though. That's a good sign

    Guess it depends on the person but I found the third party ones drained too much and wouldn't use them. But the oem ones were fine

    Thanks inffy for providing details on the aod. Hopefully OP is satisfied.

    Also, I thought Mate 9 has aod ? OP did you not find that option in your Mate 9 settings?

    I don't think it had it originally.
