lol I don't think this will be good on non-AMOLED phones, power consumption will be pretty high - just ain't worth it.

dude, AMOLED is hella battery consumer. i'm glad we don't have AMOLED. I have used AMOLED, and it drains battery very fast. We happen to own LCD which is low on battery consumption.

Oops thanked by mistake -.- active display uses the technology of amoled....so LCD needs to activate whole screen so that it can work and for amoled it will just light up the white things so it will drain less then with LCD...he doesn't meant whole usage...just active display...but on LCD it's really a battery drainer

Ehm, SLCD is supposed to drain lesser power, despite not being able to turn off display at black. Though AMOLED turns off display for black pixels, it still consumes more power. Last week, I was testing the Timely App on my One X and a friend's One S, which happens to equip an AMOLED. The result, for 5 hrs overnight, my battery downed by 19%, while he drained about 28%. Now if we ignore the irregularities such as different kernels and different clock rates, we can see that SLCD drains lesser power. In fact, combined with a few good underclocking profiles on SetCPU, I have been able to use my phone for 2 days with normal usage, not counting facebook.

I think we're getting a little off-topic here. The point I was trying to make is that Active Display takes advantage of the fact that AMOLED displays can turn off black pixels not in use, therefore saving energy while only needing to power the few pixels needed to display the notification. In contrast, our display on the One X requires the WHOLE of the screen turned on since our black pixels cannot be turned off, thus consequently causes greater drain on the battery. And we already know how weak our battery already is, right?
