Remember the great feature of the N9? It shows the clock even though the screen is in "off" mode (would that be the screen-protector mode?). Only when turned upside down or something lay on the proximity sensor it would really turn off the screen.

This has been one killer feature for me and I was so happy when the N9 brought back what was standard in many old mobile phones.

Background I do not wear watches but still, sometimes I want to check the time without showing discussion partners. E.g. you're on a boring date, your phone lies on the table and a quick glimpse to the phone is all you need to get the information. Likewise, in a meeting with a customer, etc. Usually I do not want take the phone into my hands or even get it out of my pocket and press a button. The opposite may wonder if the topics not interesting or if I have better things to do, etc.

I call this feature the UNSEEN TIME CHECK Please vote ;-)

This is only possible when the display is capable of this "low power mode" as in the N9.

@Neo That's a perfect and polite way of describing why the question has been closed (as a duplicate). We should make that.a template that is always used in these situations (especially when new users are imvolved). Ofc obly the link to the duplicate(s) would need to be edited in each case. Also, the re-tag as 'duplicate' should be done immediately when question is detected as such.

@jjaone Good idea. Maybe including this suggestion in one of the questions tagged with guidelines.
