    Is there a way to change the way the clock looks on the lock screen of the note 8 ? I really don't like it. I don't like how the hours are positioned above the minutes. I think that I've looked everywhere that an option could possibly be, am I missing something?

    There are some options under settings and then lockscreen. I have a clock face with a minute hand sweeping round the clock on my lockscreen. There a few to choose from. Forgot to say settings, lock screen, and then hit the toggle for Always on Display and that takes you to clock faces.

    No you're not missing "something". You can change the clock on the lock screen by changing the overall theme of the phone in Settings > Wallpaper & Theme > Themes

    Every theme has a different clock for the lock screen, however most look like the default but some are different. I hope this info helps...

    I'm not sure what I'm talking about lol. Actually I am referring to the black screen when the phone is idle. I used to have a digital clock with today's date under it and by going to settings, lock screen, and the AOD toggle I get several clock faces to choose from. What are you all talking about?

    Yes, I have tried about 6 different themes, and the previews show a different clock but when I apply it, the only thing that changes is the font or typeface of the numbers. So annoying lol

    Lol yeah I hate it too. It's ok if you have a notification cause it lines up the hour with the minutes. Get rid of the notification and it's like that. Lol. Hope someone finds a fix. If not I can deal with it even tho I don't like it lol.

    I have the analog clock on my black rest/idle screen with battery left, and notifications. On my home screen, I have a digital clock, date, and local weather. It is my black screen that I changed clocks and I like it much better.

    The second clock in the first row is how my idle screen is set to look. Sorry I am a newbie with all the proper phrasing of what does what.

    Go to Settings - Lock Screen- Always on Display - Digital Clock - Clock Style to change format of the digital clock if that's what you're looking to do.

    Hahaha I love your wallpaper. But I'm referring to the lock screen, not the home screen. Thanks for sharing though!

    I don't like it either, but I haven't found a way to change it.

    From what I can tell, at least on my Verizon version, you can NOT change the format of the clock on the lock screen. It's very annoying. The stacked clock is not what our eyes are used to.

    I have changed to a theme that changed the font, and got rid of the leading zero in single digit hours but it still shows it stacked.

    I think you mean "aesthetic issue". An anesthetic is what they give you before surgery.
