    So this seems to be much smaller than it was on my S7e. The font of the standard clock is a little different also. I got excited at first about being able to download new AOD's from the Samsung Theme store, but it turns out those are just image displays, no other clocks or anything. I wish there was a way to make the clock display bigger so I can see it easier at a quick glance from my bed to my nightstand, or when I'm on the couch and my phone is on the end table. I have to take a few moments longer to focus on it to see what time it is.

    I prefer Alarm Clock Plus for my night clock. It's very versatile, dims down nicely, and well worth the 99-cent paid version.

    Thanks for the suggestion. That may work at night, but from what I am reading in the description it doesn't sound like something I'd want on all day, like the AOD. I just wish it was more customizable. Seems like there's lots of potential.

    I've used Gentle Alarm for my alarm clock for years now. It also dims nicely at night. But I also like the AOD during the day and it is sometimes too small.
