My S7 Edge Always On Display automatically switched to an edge clock at night until a recent update to Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0. Since this update the feature has stopped working and I have not been able to figure out where the setting is for this edge clock?
I seem to recall there were options to schedule when the edge clock would be active (I chose between 10pm an 8am) and also which side you wanted the edge clock to display (I chose the left side).
Any clues where these settings might be as I can't seem to find them anymore since this update. I used this as my nightstand clock and it was a real bonus feature of the edge phone?
You can turn it off if is too bright. Just let us turn it on again! That is ridiculous. Please, i am resisting moving to Apple but i am getting severely tempted
It's the line of " it was too bright " that's an absolute joke of a line , more like some top boss at samsung who hasn't got a clue what useful features people use decided to take it off to make space for something that we won't use
That reply makes no sense. Worse, they removed the only useful feature the edge display had...
The edge clock worked great when laying in bed glancing at the phone on the bedside table. In other situations it is useless as the angle, orientation and size is all wrong. Also it showed next alarm, which was very convenient when going to bed to check it was set right, or checking if there is a next alarm when dismissing the first.
The full clock and notification icon list is great during the day when the phone is on the desk, but it is useless beside the bed as you have to tilt the phone, and it has to much screen area lighting up.
Oh I wish Samsung would one day be just 50% as good at software as they are at hardware. Not asking for 100%, been working with software design for 20+ years, i know it ain't easy, but i could write a book with things i think could be improved. There are so many good ideas, but the execution...
The new face widgets thing is a great idea. But to pause my music i need to double-tap, swipe, tap. Same to resume. To do it from lock screen it is just click, tap. Always on display shows which song is playing already, why oh why isn't there small pause and skip icons next to that where you can double-tap directly.
I know it can also show the next alarm that i complained about missing, but again is actually slower to use than fingerprint unlock, tap clock icon. Instead it could like show it where the current song info is when you don't listen to music.
What a ridiculous reason to remove what was one of my favourite features on my S7E. If I could work out how to revert it back to the previous operating system I would!
I agree with my fellow samsungers. The night clock was a perfect feature! Also it was the only useful feature of the edge screen. It was never too bright!
Moving it to the AOD is wrong because:
1. it is not on the edge screen
2. if I want to use it, I have to choose between a normal AOD at day or the night clock at night. There is no option to set up different AOD to different time frame.
Please give us back!
That setting was for me the only feature of the Edge screen that i have ever used, and now it is gone.
i just don't understand why is it gone, it was nowhere near bright, infact the AOD was brighter to me than the night clock
Samsung, please reinstate this feature i truly loved it.
