    It will be off for me. It has such minimal usage by using only Samsung apps.

    The whole "Saving battery to check time" thing for me is a moot point. I will take the smallest hit to check time real quick. I am never in a panic to save battery that bad.
    I'm lazy and don't like hitting the power button to check the time.

    That's why you just hit the home button instead .

    If you turn off Always On, doesn't it then become Always Off? In a parallel universe is someone asking how do you turn Always off to on?

    I am not seeing the envelope showing that there is a message, and I am using the stock email app. What email are you using?
    I'm referring to text messages, not email.

    I was at the movies last night and it was just nice to glance at the time and look for messages a few times (the movie wasn't great).

    It's a nice little feature , not mind blowing, just nice.

    It won't, Windows phones has this for years.. They call it "Glance". I'm hoping Samsung or Google let's other apps take advantage of Always on such as Calendars, Weather, Gmail ect...

    Leaving mine on too. I love the look of the gold top and bottom and the jet black screen an then the nice green and red of the calendar.

    It reminds me of something from the 70's

    I turned mine off. I find it rather useless, especially since the only notifications that show up are from Samsung apps only.

    I think it's ok. I like the way the moto X does it better, it turns on when you move the phone

    Turned mine off as it seems useless. Mine isn't showing any notifications, email nor text and I'm using stock applications??

    Off.

    I never liked them when Nokia invented them 6 years ago (then it was called Nokia Sleeping Screen) and that hasn't changed.

    Mine is off. Only showing Samsung apps makes it useless. I have my Moto 360 V2 on all the time except when I'm asleep so I can see my notifications, time, etc. on it already.

    I've left it on so far but to be honest, it really is kind of pointless until it shows all notifications

    This would make a GREAT poll.

    Leaving mine on. I find it super useful at work.

    I would like to see more functionality and 3rd party support, tho.

    I see comments about showing notifications... is it suppose to? I thought it was just clock, image, and one other option I can't remember. (Doing a fast charging while off test so I can't see it atm.) AT&T version here.

    Off.

    Tried it. It doesn't support my major texting app, Textra, so it's useless to me now.

    Supports VZ Messaging+ app, so I'll leave it on for now. Though I also use the LED notification light, so seems likes a belts and suspenders situation.

    It's a great feature, use it on my Nexus 6P. So I'm glad Samsung brought it as well.

    I have it in for now, but what's the difference between AOD and Night Clock, other than the former seems to only work in portrait mode and the latter only seems to work in landscape mode? The functionality of both seems a little limited, such as not being able to put the weather or third party apps like Textra on AOD, and the inability to schedule Night Clock between weekdays and the weekend. I'll be using one or the other as my clock at night, but I'm having a hard time deciding which is better.
