Galaxy A40 not having stock AOD

Purchased this week an A40 to replace my 2 Galaxy A3's (2017). With a "follow-up" model you could expect that at least the options are present that were also present with the previous model. But no AOD??? How could Samsung ever think of not supporting that tiny app?! Yes, third party apps are available to do the job, but that's really not an option in combination with the weak battery. Third party apps consume up to 5-8% battery power per hour! Please in the next update??

I would get a pixel, older iphone once you stop using the a40. I have both the iPhone 11 and pixel 5 now and they are both great phones though if you want more value for money and want the phone for a longer amount of time I would get the iPhone 11
