    Moto series have one of the coolest feature Notification light without waking the background we can interact with it, due to this its saves some battery, so can we have this feature in Oneplus one like double tapping the screen we can see notifications without waking the background.

    Just suggestion don't mind...I kind of like this feature..:)

    Yes it just uses display LED and consumes less battery.

    Nokia has done that before, they call it Glance. It only makes sense on AMOLED displays because there you only have to power the active pixels and not the whole screen. It's very nice, I've used it for some time on my Lumia 925. I finally turned it off because I gave it too much attention, but that's just me.

    As @fluxx said, it only makes sense on amoled screens. And iirc the Moto x has a special motion processor to save battery when polling the motion sensors

    Nice idea.
    @David S. @Carl (and other admins)
    What do you think about this?
    Is it hard to implement that useful function to the OnePlus One?

    I am not saying Oneplus one should copycat the Google idea they can implement in there own way and better way using there own technology.

    Wait..isn't this useless on LCD? On AMOLED you just light up the needed pixels for really basic notifications. Lighting individual pixels isn't possible on LCD(?).

    Should not matter. IPS is still LCD and LCD does not use indivual pixellighting :/

    They would have to switch to amoled screen for the OnePlus 2 to implement this. Like several have said before, on IPS, you would have to power the whole screen for this feature and it would be an extreme battery hog.

    exactly what @housry23 said, in an Amoled screen all the black pixels are turned off, but on and IPS (like the OPO one) the whole screen is turned on to display black pixels: so that's a waste of battery
