One thing I am missing in charging screen when phone is off is to be able to read current time in addition to charge level. This would allow to use the phone as a clock without the need to power it on when charging during the night.

Edit 26/07/2016: I received my Jolla C and found out that in the Sailfish OS version shipped the source code for the actdead charging UI is provided as QML files. I changed the main.qml file to get what I wanted. Here is the patch in attachments!

Edit 27/07/2016: Here is the requested picture. I put the clock at the bottom because of the power cable at the top of the screen in the picture. jolla-actdead-charging.tar.gz charging picture

This would be nice usability improvement. I added internal ticket for it.

LPM (or LPS) isn't properly implemented yet and features like having it always on while charging are not implemented either. I'd like to see options in the future to have LPM when charging only added to the stack.

iirc This is in both cases needed, while phone is in on and off state.

"charging screen when phone is off" = in act dead mode. "to be able to read current time in addition to charge level" = when power key is pressed --> "make act dead charging ui show also time" - fairly simple, concise ui change request that has nothing to do with lpm / the normal operation mode.

@chemist: Please file separate requests for additional stuff

@spiiroin so in act dead there is no LPM but keep display on while charging works? I was more on about not using the display-always-on-while-charging for that matter.

@chemist The act dead mode is a special case. The most important requirement it should to fulfill is: Do not discharge the battery - even when connected to usb1 port that can provide only 100 mA current. As display is the biggest cause of power drain, the dim/blank times used in normal operation are not necessarily obeyed, stay-on/dim-while-charging is ignored on purpose, etc. And, if possible, sensors are kept powered down -> which means lpm triggering via proximity sensor might not even possible (nor wanted due to the power drain).
