    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.
    I do the same and will for sure use it four that

    Anyone worried about burn in? Is it supposed to move on the screen??
    I was to, but been informed that it does move a tiny bit and every hour completely moves to a new portion of the screen

    I'm using it, but I far prefer Moto's active display. I miss the fewer steps to get into a notification and to unlock the phone.

    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.
    I use my gear s2 to read short messages. But I could see where that could come in handy if you didn't have a Smartwatch

    Anybody notice a difference in unlocking via fingerprint when AOD is on? Seems slower to me when it's on. Could just be my imagination though.

    Edit: NM I'm a dummy.

    So I'm getting an extra swipe screen when I'm using AOD and I select a notification from the lockscreen.

    I press the home button to go from the AOD to the lockscreen.
    I select the text message/notification.
    Instead of going to the message, I am taken to a swipe to open screen.
    Without AOD I do not have to swipe again.

    I understand you can see the notifications but you cannot see the actual notification itself.

    Meaning the only real thing I miss from my iPhone is when getting a text message the screen turns on and I can respond from the lock screen without unlocking the phone.

    I'm pretty sure you cannot do this with this phone correct? Someone texts me and instead of seeing the sms icon the actual text message pops up and I can interact with it without unlocking the phone. Doesn't work on this correct?

    Textra can do that for text messages. I can't remember if it's on by default, but it's in the settings.

    I do it with textra from the lock screen, you can't do it on the AOD screen. I think you can do it with Verizon messages also

    I think you have to have the pop up notifications turned on, and turn on the notification for lock screen in the settings of those apps. Remember if you allow it to display over the lock screen, anyone that picks your phone up will see the message and can reply to that message. Textra offers a timeout for displayed on lock screen also. Textra is a very nice texting app

    I didn't leave AOD on very long, so I didn't realize that. Thanks for the head's up.

    How are you able to get the clock on the aod wallpaper? I was under the impression it was either, clock, calendar, or wallpaper? Thanks!

    AMOLED is much better on battery life than the MXPE with LCD. Seems silly with LCD since whole display is turned on for a small amount of info.

    I like it a lot also, and it doesn't seem to affect battery life much, having the Amoled screen.

    I don't use it on my s7 edge. While at work I don't like to know the time lol. Feels like it goes by slower when I'm always glancing. Same reason I don't wear a watch.

    Always on screen...are you using it?-1472114812997.jpg i don"t use it because i like seeing my lock screen wallpaper and you can't unlock the phone from the always on display. This wallpaper is really bright and shows off the note 7s beautiful display.

    Turned it on yesterday and didn't see a battery drain, I like it and will continue to use it. This note seems much more refined than the s7edge, lots of little things. On the s7edge I would see a good chunk of battery drain using the AOD .

    I use it now that it shows 3rd party notifications. I especially like the layout where I can use any photo I want.
