Application of daydreaming feature in Android devices depends upon the choice of users. Depending upon the user choice and purpose, the time of the daydream operation may be set. Normally, the mobile devices are not used during the charging and during the period, if the photos are run as the photo table or photo frame, the daydreaming during the charging is recommended. If the mobile device is to be used as clock, the sleep time is a preferred choice and so on. So, the time to daydream is a relative option.

Normally, 3 different options are available when you can daydream:

  • While docked
  • While charging
  • Either (either docked or charging)


You may select any choice, easily, but if you need some help, you may get it from instructions.
