Mine neither...ambient display behavior is weird....doesn`t work quite well. Maybe is an L bug...

Yeah I keep reading how on the nexus 6 it works just as Moto display does but not on the Moto x. It sucks because I actually prefer the full lockscreen notifications over Moto display.

Ambient Display will not turn ur screen on when u pick it up. It only lights the area where the notification came in on lock screen.

that's pretty lame. i like the look of it more than moto display, but if it doesn't light up when i pick up the phone it's worthless.

It does this to conserve battery.

Yeah but I've read that ambient display uses a lot more battery than the Moto Display because Ambient Display uses the Snapdragon Processor while Moto Display doesnt so Moto Display is more battery efficient lets say .... I havent tried it myself to be honest.

I want to use moto display and deactivate ambient display, but I don't know how to do it. When I receive a notification all I see is a padlock icon.

Moto Display knows when you reach for the phone because of the four infrared sensors in the corners. I heard that activating Ambient Display deactivates those sensors, so the phone doesn't know you're reaching for it.

Yes, Moto Display gets deactivated when you use the Lollipop Ambient Display. It's not the reaching for the phone part that I cared about though, as I have that disabled in Moto Display. I just wish Ambient Display turned on when you picked up the phone like Moto Display does.
