    I read you can get landscape AOD time on S10...is the option available for the S21?...will it autorotate like every other screen or do you have to manually select 'landscape'?

    I ask as my case has a built in kickstand but only to use in landscape mode, so at night-time in particular it would be useful to display the AOD clock thus...my Note 9 couldn't do this, very annoying.

    Thanks!

    I don't see an autorotate option, just portrait or landscape.

    That presents an option to autorotate the home screen & lock screen, but not the AOD screen.

    In settings>lockscreen >AOD tap >screen orientation tap
    That presents portrait and landscape options for AOD, but not an autorotate option.

    It's probably considered too much of a battery drain to have to monitor the gyroscopes when the AOD screen is showing.
