    How in the world do I get rid of that hideous looking clock where the 2 dyddgen hour is over top of the 2 digit minute in some weird font on my lock screen? I have looked through all of the find a way to get rid of it.

    It is pretty ugly. Not sure what their thoughts were on that deal.

    You can change it in your settings. Go to display. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list in the "Looking for Something Else?" section and click on Always On Display (AOD). There you can turn off the AOD, or choose a different clock or feature to have on the AOD. You can also access this menu item by pulling down the notification bar, expanding it down, scroll left, and then long press on the AOD icon. This icon also works just like WiFi in that you can turn the AOD on/off from there.

    I don't think it's the AOD, I changed mine to the mechanical clock. But once you hit the power button on the right, it goes to this screen. The clock there randomly changed between this horrible looking one, and the secoind picture which I wish it would stay as. [​IMG][​IMG]

    It's not the AOD though, it's the screen once you wake it up

    I know but that is where I found the clock style. It changed it even though I have AOD turned off

    I've changed the clock style and it does it for the AOD but not for that lock screen
