You might be knowing the latest “Always On display” feature that’s available only in premium segment smartphones. It displays all basic information like battery percentage, Clock, Unread messages and even more. Most of them are customised as per users choice. This feature was available on Windows phone by Nokia. But later on Motorola borrowed their idea and introduced this feature in Android Phone, and now you can find it in almost every flagship Smartphones. It’s really cool to have this premium feature in a smartphone. The phone looks even more elegant if you have a black variant smartphone.


But now you can get this feature even in low cost smartphones by an app called “Always ON AMOLED“. This brilliant app is developed by Tomer Rosenfled, we were so pleased to install this app that it actually made our phone look more premium. The app is totally free to use.
