    Default Can the clock be removed from the S5 lock screen?

    I'm aiming for a very minimalist look for my lock screen. All I want visible on the lock screen (aside from the wallpaper) is the status bar at the top. I managed to hide everything else but I can't seem to get rid of the clock...

    Can the clock be removed from the S5 lock screen?-screenshot_2014-08-24-20-53-41.jpg

    Plus, the time is already in the status bar so having a big clock on the lock screen is redundant.

    Can someone offer any way for me to get rid of the clock? Even i there was a way to recolor it or something maybe that would help in some cases. For example, if I could make it black then it wouldn't be visible against the current wallpaper...

    My device is rooted and I have Xposed framework installed.

    I don't think you'll be able to accomplish that with OEM lockscreen option. Download C Locker Free Version from the PlayStore and then basically what you will do is not to add any widget, and then select your Wallpaper and set to show the Status Bar.

    Yes. I used an Xposed Framework module which requires root.

    I will try this. Thanks.

    UPDATE:
    So I tried it. I like some of the features that it offers, but there are some dealbreakers. For starters, even though it lets me hide the clock, it puts a little 'lock' icon on the screen for me to drag to unlock. I can't seem to get rid of that. It's a lot uglier than the clock. Secondly, I really like the swiping effect that the stock lock screen has when swiping to unlock, and this does not offer such an effect.

    Can't do too much about the Lock icon, as far as I know if it's locked, you will have some kind of Icon or something notifying you that it's locked, and the Swipe effects that's Samsung stuff, doubt that you will find something like it with any other Lock Screen App, for that you will need to keep using the OEM option.

    So, it's your choice, C Locker (or any other lockscreen app, altough C Locker is the only one that I really liked) will give you TONS of features and combinations that you will Love like still can use the Galaxy S5 Finger Print option, like been able to fully use the notification bar even if you use any kind of security to lock the phone, well, you name it, but like I said before, it can give you tons of features, but if you want the contrary, to have it as simple as possible with just the Notification bar, then it can do that also, but you will lose any Samsung's lockscreen feature, like the effects.

    I understand. Thanks. Maybe eventually someone will find a way to hide the clock. For now, I'll deal with it.

    Sir you and I are one in the same, I too seek to remove this ugly clock I mean why have it on the notification bar and the lock screen, why not just have 1 on the status bar also have the option to hide the hoe on the lock I mean all the other crap the company put on these phones and they still wont add simple things such as this... if I find a way to hide the sl*t I share it with you.
    Happy Hunting.

    You can remove by instaling galaxy s5 widgets, it' an xposed module it lets you add more widgets to the lockscreen or remove the curent one in your case the clock

    Hmmmmm... thanks for the tip. I'm using that xposed module and it lets me change lockscreen widgets but it doesn't appear to let me have zero widgets...
