    When i unboxed the phone today there was an update to be downloaded and before installing the update i switched on 'Always on display' not 'lift to display' but after installing the update this feature was removed and only can use lift to display.

    I would be thankful if you please readd this feature as soon as possible in an update.

    Only thing I heard is that they are still working on it making it better. So I guess it might return little later on

    Whoa weird ....

    Maybe the AOD was experimental

    I don't know why they took it out. My guess is like yours - experimental purposes. I am guessing that maybe the OnePlus 6T will have AOD :D

    It'd be battery consuming though ... The Ambient display styles use too much of the screen, and isn't minimalistic as Samsung AODs.... So yes, a probable reason to remove it

    Samsung actually spent a huge amount of time and effort researching and developing ways for their AOD to be way more battery efficient than typical implementations and that's still one of people's number one complaints. My guess is it was an experimental feature that they took out to avoid an onslaught of battery drain threads right after release. This is all conjecture of course though.

    Aren't you a little too old to be saying things like lit AF?:rolleyes:

    Also O/T, that's all I could think about when they were doing their Fast AF campaign was that abbreviation.:p

    My brother doesn't use AOD on his Samsung s8+
    Reason - a bit of battery drain
