    Is there a way to disable the motion sensor from constantly waking the phone, without losing notifications for email/texts/etc?

    I have disabled all the moto actions, but the clock screen is still constantly coming up whenever the phone moves, such as when I'm walking or it is sitting on the passenger seat in my car! Kind of annoying, especially at night. I can make it stop by disabling moto display, but since there's no LED to notify me when I get a text or email, I'll never know.... Grrrr.

    If I put it face down, then I won't see the notifications of incoming messages....

    Unfortunately, Turbo Fast might be right. This is the way that Motorola has chosen to handle notifications, and if this doesn't work for you, which is totally understandable, then you might want to explore other options. I personally like it, but that's what's great about Android. There's a phone that works for everyone. Good luck!

    Well, I think I've found a workaround. If I disable the MotoDisplay to stop the screen from coming on with every movement, I can use a 3rd party app like DynamicNotifications or HeadsUp Notifications to alert me of a pending message via the screen. The downside of that is it will obviously use more power lighting up the whole screen for a notification than the MotoDisplay app which only activates the necessary pixels, but at least the screen doesn't wake every time the phone moves.

    I really wish the MotoDisplay was customizable so you could choose for what reasons it will turn on the screen.

    There's not a way to pick your notifications on motion sensor I have the same phone and the best thing you can do is go to your settings and click on active display and turn it off. You can see your notifications by pressing the power button and look at the top of the screen where it tells you time your notifications are there and it will function lime your average phone no more motion sensor when your phone moves I prefer it this way personally but it depends on how you want it to be

    Go to your Moto app, click on the settings in the upper right corner (it'll be there after you first set it up), Click on display, then unclick moto display.

    I got here by accident actually, as I was looking for a way to get the clock to stop flashing every time the phone moves. But I have a legit fix for anyone else that makes it here.

    For anybody who doesn't want to read all the threads and scrolls to the bottom like me, you turn it off by going into your little moto app (found on my phone by searching the apps), and turn off all the display functions.

    Once you've turned off the clock from flashing every time the phone is moved, if you want to still keep all your notifications you just go into your settings (the app with the cog symbol), then "Sound and notification", and scroll down to "Notification". There is two options here, one for when the device is locked, and the other is app notifications.

    If you change the "when device is locked" to the option "hide sensitive notification content" it will just tell you that you have a notification from whatever app is sending it, but give you no content. To be explicit, the notifications are shown on your lock screen but no information is given about the content, just which app is notifying you. The other two options basically are "all" and "none"... I think you can all work out what they do.

    You can set some apps to not notify you at all if you're getting too many, or to notify you even if your phone is in "do not disturb" mode through the "app notification" setting.

    This specifically will make it so that your phone has notifications on the lock screen when you push the power button, and have the clock stop flashing at you every time the phone moves. The phone won't flash on and show a notification as they appear though with this method, for that you need either to live with the moto screen or third party apps.

    Sorry this is a long explanation but hopefully this fixes the problem for anyone who's made it here, without needing 3rd party apps necessarily, any serious technical knowledge, or tearing out any hair

    I hope this helps!!
