    I want to save battery and maintain battery health...

    But I really like using AOD. But I know it's a battery drainer. So I keep debating back and fourth on whether to use it or not.

    If you like it, use it. AOD doesn't drain enough battery to make anyone be on the fence about using it.

    I have my aod on a schedule. No need for it to be on all night.

    AOD is usually on from 10am - midnight . So I do have somewhat of break after midnight. About a 10 hr break from AOD. I honestly can't remember when I didn't have AOD. My last phone was a S7 Edge.

    I used to have it on and was still getting 6-7 hrs before 20% but it's too much of a hassle for me. It's extra work to check notifications and stuff.

    I like it on at night, since I don't have a clock or a watch.

    When I go to conventions, I have the night clock on and the AOD on.

    AOD drains an extra ~0.5%-1% per hour when it's activated and in use. I say "in use" because AOD can be activated but not "in use" when it's in eg. a pocket - in this case, I think AOD would cause zero extra drain during the periods it's in eg. a pocket.

    So over a 10 hour day, you can expect to lose up to an extra 10%. It all depends on whether that extra 10% is crucial for you.

    AOD saves battery. You use more battery turning on your display to see notifications and to check the time

    I think that depends. With AOD disabled, if you're checking your phone every minute (say by pressing the power button), then yes having AOD enabled would very likely save battery.

    But if you're checking your phone every hour (with AOD disabled), then I would think having AOD enabled and "in use" would drain more battery.

    Haha. I don't leave mine on 24/7. just during the day. :P Sometimes, it's in a pocket or purse. If I got a wallet phone case then it wouldn't be 'in use' all the time.

    I used it before. But I just use the double tap.
    When I did use AOD, battery life wasn't affected

    I run my Moto Z Play Droid with Moto Display on all the time. I don't have any battery anxiety any more, so why not?

    I've used AOD since one of my many Samsung phones came out with it but I use it now on my Pixel 2 XL. I love it even more now that I can delete notifications while on AOD screen! I don't have battery issues since I got my Pixel so I can't chime in on that.

    That'd be a nice feature for Samsung to add to their AOD. Deleting notifications while AOD screen is on.

    That's impossible for battery life not to be affected (since AOD uses at least some extra power to display those pixels with the screen off). I assume you mean battery life was barely affected or you didn't notice battery life being affected much.

    A simple way to demonstrate battery life being affected is to leave AOD enabled overnight while you sleep verses AOD disabled.

    My 5" Pixel 2 drains 10-12% overnight so, for that phone and battery size at least, it would be too high a drain if I left it on my desk all day for example.

    For me it's fine as double tap to wake has been unreliable on any phone I've ever had. A slow double tap seems to be the way to get the P2 to work.

    AOD left a burn in on my screen after about 4 days of having the phone.
    Since replacing my device I have yet to turn it on.
    I don't need it or miss it.

    I fear burn-in so I've NEVER used it.
