    My thing is... Does anyone actually spend time on the lock screen? My always on display is always on. Lol. I press power or home and facial recognition almost instantly unlocks the phone. So why so much bother about it? (this is a question, not a judgment.)
    My sentiments exactly!

    (PROBABLY) A SIMPLE SOLUTION

    By chance I discovered that simply installing the stock google watch app

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.deskclock

    will bring you back

    * the "normal" clock on the homescreen
    * ability to set the clock as screensaver ( -> BEDSIDE MODE while charging!!!!!!!)

    HOWEVER:
    you have to disable the "(immediate) LOCK device with ON/OFF button"-function (sorry i have a german operating system so i don't know the exact wording of the function in the (device) security menu. i personally set the time for the automatic lock to 2 (!!!) minutes (for some reason it does not work with 1 minute...), so this is not bothering me.

    what i also did is setting the google watch as SCREENSAVER. don't know exactly if this also affects the behavior of the clock on the homescreen, but i use this feature primarily as clock while charging overnight ("bedside mode").

    Hope this will work for you guys!

    Cheers from Austria

    Everyone I figured it out.

    Go to settings.
    Click on lock screen and security.
    Scroll down and click on Always on Display
    Then under clock style, choose the style you want.
    Click on that clock and then you can customize it from there.

    You're welcome.
    It worked for me. New Samsung s8 for my job. Disliked the checkerboard clock by default. But after clicking the checkerboard clock in the aod section I chose a normal 12:00 look. It survived lock button and reboot. Now lock screen has easy to read clock all times.

    That is the AOD screen not the Lock Screen clock, there are 2 separate clocks..

    Thought i would post here with a solution since i initially came across this forum looking for an answer on how to get rid of the stacked clock on the Lock Screen for my note 8 i just got today in Australia.

    I agree the stacked clock is horrible looking on all 3 screens;
    AOD - Locked Screen - Home Screen


    Currently via settings you cannot change the clock style on the locked screen and it was driving me nuts.
    However there is a way without having to change the theme as some have suggested which i found did not work.

    Work-around:

    The clock in the locked screen will show nicely only when there is at least one notification showing. What i did was i searched in the play store 'notification maker' and downloaded the free app which allows me to create a notification note that does not clear away when you press the clear button.

    Only thing is, at the top of your notification bar you will see a notification icon when you unlock the screen; but its better than seeing that ugly stacked clock every time i want to check the time or my phone while locked.

    Hope this helps
