    they made the font size for the hour super bold. i can understand the reasoning but it looks hideous! i like uniformity.

    also went into the settings menu on the click, encoutered a birght red font for the title. very strange!

    just some random musings.

    I actually kinda like the font of the clock on 4.2, though mine is on my Galaxy Nexus, as I wasn't able to order a Nexus 4 on launch.

    They should allow some settings to adjust how heavy the clock is, but you don't have to use it. Download some widgets and put something else up there. Problem solved. This isn't Apple forcing you to live with whatever they give you with no option to change things.

    I don't like it. Don't care for the lock screens either. I like the lock screen on the Lumia 920 much better. I would rather have them in one place instead of how they are. Why so big??? However, I like the phone and I'm glad I got mine today so, rant is over.

    I am sure there will apps to modify the lock screen.

    Yup hate the digital clock font too. Love that they finally included a digital clock, but they didn't need to mess it up like that

    Somehow the font grows on you. Hated it but now I'm liking it. That's just me though

    I always found little things like humorous. Its weird how it happens, but I guess we grow to adapt. You know like little imperfections which some how make it perfect?

    I don't mind it on my Nexus 4 honestly, but my wife thought her N7 was screwed up when she saw it right after updating it lol!

    I've got a 920 also although it's probably going on craigslist next week, just not enough changes in WP8 to make me go back yet. The lockscreen stuff is much more customizable on the Nexus 4 by far.

    You already can, I put a different clock on my wife's N7 becuse she didn't care for the new one either.

    Quick Edit - Forgot to put in a link, OP try this one it's what I used on my wife's N7. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...9ja3dpZGdldCJd
