What's the point in taking up screen estate with a duplicated function, or does everyone have bad eye sight?

because it looks nice, also it's normally a clock/weather combination. If you really wanted to complain about it, you could of said there is always a clock in the top right, you don't have to shut your phone off and then back on to see the clock. It's not in fact just so you can have a huge clock though, it's more of a designer thing. It looks nice, and appeasing to the eyes. You don't like the look, that is obvious, and that is why we all have personal tastes. So go ahead, put a million little unorganized icons on your front page, that would look tacky to me and millions of others, or put a calendar on the front page, which will again look tacky in my opinion. I just feel like a big clock looks right at home on the front page along with the weather included. I'm sorry you don't feel the same way. We aren't all made the same way, you should of learned that early on broski!
