    I use it and like it a lot. Glance was a feature I loved on Windows Phone that offered a similar function.

    In some things I do. I like the different face options, and I love that I can make it blue so that it matches my device. But I loved how much more interactive Moto's Active Display was/is. I think Samsung nailed the classy look of their display, but I found Moto's to be more practical and useful.
    Moto active display is more interactive but I never used that functionality. I just opened the app when I got a notification.

    I love the idea of touching the notification and having it expand to show you more info. If Samsung's AOD had that, I would absolutely love it. It's not a necessity, but it was sure nice at times.

    I'm using it and love it. Had the s7 Edge and never used it since it didn't support 3rd party apps. I've had Moto active display in the past and I didn't like and don't get why so many enjoy it. My biggest gripe was that the display would come on just when the phone moved. I would put it on the couch or bed, if it moved the display would turn on so I found myself looking at the phone more because I would think I had a notification and didn't.
    To each their own, I guess.

    I could see why some would like it... I never used that functionality when I had moto though.

    I do like having a quick glance of my calendar for the day. I'm not terribly busy so don't "live" in my calendar like some do so having it there front-and-center is nice. I like having nothing to do all day. In all seriousness, because I don't open my calendar it's nice to have a reminder of what's going on. I just wish I could swap out tasks for reminders. I don't use tasks at all as I haven't figured out how to incorporate them smoothly. I can create reminders via Google Keep as well as voice commands but have yet to figure out an easy "task" manager. I know there are tons of them, but reminders work well for me at the moment.

    I only use it when I go to sleep. If I wake up then I can easily see the time. I don't use the nightclock because I keep my phone vertically.

    Is it a battery drain? And is it useful?

    I prefer Samsung aod over the Moto active display.
    Really? The Moto active display is the one feature I have missed since giving my Maxx to my kid when I bought the Note 4. I really like the AOD and have it on, but it would be oh so much better if pressing the icon let me read the notification.

    I found it kind of pointless for me as it gave a short portion of email, not enough, so I would have to open anyways. Or for hangouts it only gives a few messages, whereas I could have a lot more.

    It could be useful to some people, just not me

    It's as useful as having a constant clock displaying on your screen (and notification icons and a quick note). As for battery drain, I've only been using it for a day (just wanted to test out the 'improved' version), and so far it's been negligible.

    You will turn on your screen less to check the time and a quick glance to notifications, though, so that might be why it's not 'affecting' the battery life.

    There is an update for the AOD. Not sure if the feature was there before the update but you can double tap the notification to open it. If that is what you're talking about.

    That's fair. I used it a lot for texts, so I could see enough to know if I needed to unlock. A lot of time, when it is just a couple word answer I was looking for, the active display was perfect.
