  • If you ever owned a Nokia Symbian (Anna and up) you know there is a screen saver feature that shows the clock and date in different forms. Taking advantage of the AMOLED displays, it turns off all the pixels but the clock frame, thus taking very few energy resources while displaying the useful time.


    The implementation found on Android 4.2 of an active screen saver can be both useful and fun to watch. You can activate it by going into the device’s Settings/Display/Daydream. Once there you can activate the feature by toggling the On/Off switch in the top right corner. The feature can also be customized through the available modes shown below.

    You can choose to display a Clock that is displayed on a very dim background, best on AMOLED displays to preserve energy. The second mode called Colors shifts different nuances on the display. The Photos can be displayed in either Frame or Table – slideshow or collages. Last but not least you can use Currents to display the main headlines.

    If you are among the lucky owners of a Nexus device, you must give this feature a try once you get the update.
