Customize the Always On Display mode:

Instead of switching it off, you can customize the clock, add a calendar or choose the wallpaper. though there aren’t enough options available, you can follow these steps to make the ‘always on’ display unique.

  • Navigate to ‘settings’
  • Go to ‘display’
  • Select ‘content to show’
  • Choose ‘clock/calendar’ or ‘background image to show’

So in all, this feature works great, works on less battery, is useful, dims itself in low light and brightens during the day but sadly doesn’t work on third party apps and needs more customization options. It’s an awesome feature and with a few tweaks here and there, it will be another winner by Samsung.
