    Changing the theme does not change the clock for the lock screen. I tried doing this several times now. It just doesn't work. There are no settings for it either. The only way we could change it is if Samsung puts out a software update...
    See post #43 . It works. but only on a couple themes.

    If you use home and away settings at least you get two clocks in a nicer arrangement than the single vertical one, that's the only change I can get

    I found a theme that is working. When browsing the themes, look for one where the lockscreen clock has been modified in some way, either by color or font change. I don't know why the trial version worked before but the paid theme didn't. At any rate, I've done a restart and it's holding. Theme is called WinterSnow (free) by aire design. If it at some point reverts, I'll let you know.

    Download a weather app (Weatherbug) and leave the Notifications on at least til they update. Now they just need an update to move the fingerprint scanner 😂😂

    Excellent idea DCizzle92785. I'm using 1Weather with ongoing notifications. Nothing will clear it and it's small.

    Can you you be more clearer on this? I don't know what you mean...
    As for the weather app, the hubby has the Weatherbug and I'll see if having the notification on helps or not.

    OK. Here is what I can confirm so far. The clock everyone is speaking of is the lock screen, not the AOD screen.

    If you DONT have any notifications the clock will go in over/under format. If you DO have notifications the clock goes in side by side mode.

    I've tested theme changes, some of them maintain the side by side format regardless of notifications, but not all. The ones I found were paid themes.

    So far the theme is the only way to change the lock screen clock format. I might attempt to make one that is basic but if anyone tests them and finds ones that show full clock format with zero notifications post it here.

    Reply with questions if any, but I think this is pretty clear. Lack of basic functionality

    I'm new to Samsung but I want to change the clock layout on the lock screen. Is there a way to do that?

    ZUI Locker from the Play Store. You won't be able to use the systems unlock security features ie fingerprint scanner, face recognition, etc. You will have to make your own in the app itself.

    Go to settings/lock screen and security/information and face widgets and set roaming clock on

    Go to Settings...Lock screen and security...Information and FaceWidgets...Contact and Information. You can type in something here and it will show up underneath a horizontal clock. If you don't want anything to show up but still want the horizontal clock, just put in one space and no other text.

    I took this VERY bad pic of my phone. It has the all time display on, and as you can see, barely, it has the time and day on top of an icon I uploaded, with a quote below it. I just went to settings, then to Lock screen and Security, and then I clicked on the words, "Always on Display", NOT the toggle switch, but the actual words. Then it took me to the next page where you get a selection of clocks you can use, even a clock and a calendar, or no clock on the face and just having the info on the side screen. Or like I did, up load your own picture and have the clock info on top of it, and a quote below it if you want a quote. You might need the latest upgrade for this, not sure, if it doesn't work, try going to settings, then down to system updates and see if there's and update for your phone.

    Seems to me someone with the ability to make themes could make some $ here. Make a stock theme but with the lock screen clock perpetually horizontal. Oh well. It doesn't bother me because I long press the home button to bypass the lock screen. BUT I KNOW it's there haha.

    This worked for me: http://smarturl.it/samsung-s8-clock-chg

    A bit hacky but it sets the clock on the lock screen to a regular looking style and allows you to use a wallpaper after which still leaves the regular clock format.

    There are quite a few themes that do this. I'm using Santana 4 round now. Changed wallpapers and icons. Clock does not go vertical. Also simple black by aire works.
