I think many users would love to have a stock based rom that has most of the moto x great features, such as active notifications, flick wrist camera gesture, always on voice commands. Any dev here looking for a challenge?

Yeah, maybe the always on voice control would too much. But the rest would be great.

Not just the voice commands, Active Display is meant for AMOLED screens as they are able to keep black pixels turned off, saving a of battery. The screen on the Moto G would require to completely lit up even on a black background. That pretty much defeats the concept of AD, imo.

Droid mini has active display and it has an lcd screen just like the moto g, doesn't noticeably drain battery.

I wasn't aware of this. You're absolutely right, the Droid Mini does have Active Display.

After googling a bit, though, it seems that the Droid Mini's AD works a little different than the X's; it makes use of other sensors to turn the screen on based on the user's proximity.
We seem to be looking in the wrong direction with this Active Display thingy
