Glance Plus: Always On (or something similar)

Glance Plus is a free application that emulates, as far as possible, Always On display that we see in Galaxy S7 or LG G5. Although application works in a different way. Always On feature displays the time and several notifications only on single part of the screen, while Glance Plus turns the entire screen.

IPS LCD screens and this app will not save as much battery as AMOLED would (for the characteristics of each type of screen), but not much consumption would increase by the way of functioning of this application. In fact, the screen is not always on time and showing possible notifications, except under certain conditions that you set yourself.

Glance Plus does not work quite as Always On, but, not to consume your battery only works for a limited time (between 5 seconds and 2 minutes, depending on how you configure it), but when the screen is completely off, the sensor is activated proximity, so if you pass your hand between 1 and 3 times (depending on how you configure it), will show the time and notifications like you have Always on display.

So if you want Always On display and you are not root, this free application will work quite well despite its limitations. Smartphones that will bring more profit without spending much battery are those who have an AMOLED screen.
