Nokia Lumia 1520 cyan version leaks, phablet gets teased in new Glance Background screenshot
First, every active pixel creates extra drain on the battery. So Martin and his colleagues worked at optimising how the image would be displayed. For example every second vertical pixel is removed on LCD screens, to cut down on the power used. On AMOLED screens, horizontal pixels were also removed to further aid with power consumption.
Second, there was a risk of screen burn – the background image creating a permanent ‘after-image’ on the display. To resolve this, the displayed pixels are alternated every hour to the ones that are otherwise turned off, so that pixel burn won’t happen. This has quite a happy consequence. The image used for the background almost looks as though it’s on another, lower level than the clock figures. Less pixels = less light = it looks further away.

What's so amazing in that? It's looks like a very minor feature to make such a big thing about. Samsung also have such a feature, but hardly they mention it anywhere.

Which Samsung devices have this? I think this is cool and woild like to have it as well. I have the OG Note at the moment waiting to see what drops at the end of the year to get something new.

I believe the Note 2 was the first Samsung phone to have this feature. The S4, Galaxy Round, & Note 3 also have it. It's called Quick Glance.

Nokia's marketing team deserves a massive bonus. Most of their ads are simply ingenious.

Nokia did a good job. I used to have it on my Nokia n8. Today, I have it on my lumia 820. I put a really nice pictures. You could adjust them to get the perfect look.
