How to troubleshoot turning on the permanent display
One of the technologies that has changed the way we understand and use smartphones the most in recent years is the Always On Display. This tool allows us to immediately check the time or notifications, but nevertheless we are faced with problems with activating the Always On Display in some models, and we want to help you avoid this.
When we buy a new mobile phone, it is normal that we have a hard time finding the steps to follow, although they are usually the same. Then each brand offers us some options so that we can choose the style of the screen. Some examples of Xiaomi Always On Display Modes that are constantly improving.
Your mobile phone does not allow this because it does not have an AMOLED screen
The most common reason why we cannot activate the Always On Display is that our smartphone does not support it. This is due to the fact that manufacturers only allow it to be used on screens with AMOLED or OLED technology. In LCD screens, it is impossible to turn off other unused pixels, and you cannot take advantage of this without draining the battery.

- Schedule hours to activate Always On Display.
- Tap the screen or move your phone.
- Active all day.
Depending on our needs to control time, notifications, and other creative options, we can customize the Always On Display mode. We will have to keep this in mind, because if we configured it to only be used during the day, we might think that for some reason we cannot use the Always On Display when in fact we only have the wrong configuration for ourselves. …

When trying to activate this screen, we may encounter a mode called Screensaver that although it can be configured with a watch or even a photo if it is not Always On Display mode. This confusion could be an alternative for those who want to use Always On Display mode on mobile phones with IPS screens, using it, for example, when we charge it.
