S7 Oreo - Reinstate the Edge Clock

Sure, there is a side clock that is in the Always On Display settings, however:

- It is not a true Edge Clock

- It has to be on all the time. With the previous Android version, the Edge Clock could be set to be on between certain hours (e.g. overnight).

 

The Edge Clock was a brilliant feature, not least because it saved the head from leaving the pillow in the middle of the night!

 

It was a poor idea to drop it.

 

Please bring it back!

I am in Scotland.  The update was via the standard monthly OTA feed.

Just found this thread after searching around in settings for ages. I'm amazed they shipped the upgrade without migrating functionality using a key differentiator of the galaxy edge range.

Apparently this can't be reinstated due to an absurd amount of bulls**t that's come directly from Samsung .......... Apparently

Got to bring things back. Anything you (Samsung) think you're going to take away in a "feature update" next time....just add an on off toggle 😊 (which was already there for edge clock)

Now I am totally disappointed as well... Just got my oreo update on my s7 edge and was wondering where the night clock setting has been gone. Bring it back samsung, please. You can't sell a product and disable features after some time (except for a good reason, like infinite effort for maintenance - it this is obviously not the case!)
