I have been searching for a solution to this problem for over half a year now, and cannot fathom that Samsung still have not issued a fix for this issue. Particularly based on how many others seems to be looking for a way to change this.
On the LOCK screen (NOT the home screen, and NOT the Always On Display), the clock has been stacked in stead of displayed on one line like normal time keeping devices. I am looking for a fix that:
-Is NOT using Always On Display
-Does NOT require a change of theme (they always revert back anyway)
-Is usable with a custom lock screen wallpaper (such as a picture from my gallery)
-Does not require a notification to always be on display
Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone else complained directly to Samsung? Has anyone heard anything back from them? Are there any updates planned to fix this?
Please, I'm about to throw my phone away. I left Apple for annoying little things like this, everything I heard about Android devices suggested they would be a lot more flexible and customizable than this.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I liked the stacked clock on the lock screen of Samsung Galaxy S8, and changing it was also possible until recently.
My last update to Android version 9 was in March 10, 2019.
Under Settings -> Lock screen -> Clock style, you can change the style of the clock.
However, if you close the cover, you only get the same clock style and there is no way to change it.
It seems that the lastest update destroyed this feature.
My S8+ updated last night. Now the clock will not display at rest. Meaning....the display goes Black and I now have to press the button on the right side of the phone in order to see the time. Please tell me how to get back...
