Always on display is now part of Google’s Android operating system. Since the update of Android Oreo, Google provides, always on display over the lockscreen which shows you notifications on the dark screen. It really looks cool and people are also using it on their Android devices. Over the years Samsung has given many interesting features in devices. Now it looks like they are essential for other Android devices.

Thankfully, if your device has not Always on Display feature, you can add using an app. It will add native support for AoD on your Android device. Here it is worth to mention that the application is specially made to use for AMOLED as well as OLED panels. There is no one to stop you from using this app for LCD panels of your device. But, keep in mind, you may lose performance. It will not be able to deliver an exact same reflection of original AoD feature!

Always on AMOLED

Coming on the application, all you need to do is download an application called, Always on AMOLED from the Google Play Store. You will find the link here. Once you have done with the installation process, open the application. Of course, it will ask for some permissions includes modify system settings, make and manage phone calls and notification access. Just turn the all toggles on grant all permissions.

Now, you should get yourself inside the app. The application is now enabled. With the provided options, you can change the further settings. Here are some of my suggestions.

  • You can change the brightness of AoD in order to save battery life. On the main screen, you will find the Brightness. You can even set it on Auto which might be the best option for you.
  • When you place your device in your pocket, definitely, there is no need for the AoD. For that, there is Pocket Mode provided, which will turn off your device display using the proximity sensor.
  • Edge Glow: This setting will glow your device edges whenever you get any notification. It looks really cool. You will find this setting in Notifications option under the General.
