Want to experience HTC One (M8)'s Motion Launch gestures on any OLED Android device? Try Knockr

0. phoneArena posted on 07 May 2014, 09:37

TC's flagship for this year, the One (M8), came with the latest version of Sense UI, 6.0, which was playfully dubbed ''Sixth Sense''. Apart from its cleaner, flatter visuals and on-screen buttons, Sense 6.0 also introduced Motion Launch gestures – a rather useful addition to the functionality of the interface. What Motion Launch does is simple, yet most welcome – when the One (M8)'s screen is off, the user can wake the device up with a simple double tap, navigate to a certain app with a swipe, or launch the camera with the aid of the volume buttons. So far, so good!...

Still... It will drain like hell!
I had NoLed on my S2 and it drained battery a lot!

With all respect, this is one of the most stupid apps made for this purpose!

I thought it's gonna be like a kernel thing or something...

NoLED on a S4 Mini, and on the S3 that was stolen from me never was a battery drainer...

Maybe you didn't configure properly to maximize battery life?

When I set NoLED usually activate the Proximity Sensor, so the screen remains off most of the time (in a pocket or facing down), at expense of the battery use of the sensor which is really minimal...

I also set a timer, so the notification only stay on for 15 minutes or so...

Finally, I avoid big parts of the screen lit such as Weather, Battery, Date info... but I do like full app icons instead of "color dots"...

I configure al this to my mother's S4 Mini and she couldn't be happier... I don't think she would trade NoLED notifications for a single led light, or a different phone like an iPhone with no external notification at all....
