Motorola introduced an active display way back on the original Moto X that would show you notifications on your device without having to actually turn the screen on. It was a pretty useful feature that’s since been ported to tons of other phones and even third-party apps.
Moto’s latest Twitter marketing attack is bringing that up by slinging mud towards Samsung for “stealing” the Always-On Display that’s present in the Galaxy S7 and Note 7. The tweet is actually pretty clever and even brings Samsung’s Galaxy brand into the fold.

Sure, it’s kind of a lame jab at Samsung. Great features will eventually make their way into other devices, and the Moto Z’s fingerprint scanner below the screen or modular attachments are no exception to that rule. Something about stones in glass houses?
Even if there isn’t much depth to the attack, it’s good to see Moto punching up and aggressively advertising the fantastic Moto Z and Moto Z Force. They’re certainly more bold than the Galaxy S7 with the Moto Mods, even if there’s absolutely zero chance they outsell Samsung’s latest.
