    This is a super nitpicky issue, but here goes! :)

    Screenshot_20190107-151155.png

    See in my notifications area where it says Mon, Jan 7? On my old phone (which I'm still using) it says Monday, January 7.

    I'm using ADW Launcher 1 EX on both phones.

    I've gone through every date/time format setting I can find, both system and launcher, and can't find a way to get the extended date on my new phone.

    Old: Moto X 2nd Generation, Lollipop 5.1

    New: Moto Z² Force Edition, Oreo 8.0.0

    Thoughts/suggestions?

    :D :) :D

    But as a UNIX/Linux person for 30+ years, and knowing that we can display dates and times in a near-infinite number of ways--and, therefore, so can Android (Linux)--I want it the way I want it! :D

    :D
    See, that's perfectly doable: in many ways. So I KNOW this is all in there (Android)--it's just a matter of how to make use of it. :thinking:

    I have the abbreviated version, too. LG G6 Oreo with Nova for my launcher. I don't see a way to change that either. :(

    On a "Lenovorola" Moto G4 with 7.x the date is abbreviated, but on my Samsung Galaxy S7 and Huawei Mate 10 both with 8.1 it's shown in full.

    No, I suspect we are in custom ROM territory to change this. There's no sign of an option in my phone either. Though I get 8 Jan rather than Jan 8, which I'm sure is a region thing (my home screen clock is yyyy/mm/dd, but that's because that's my custom widget rather than an OEM one).

    Is it a Moto thing?
    Never had one and cannot seem to remember having the date in that place on any phone.
    I can't believe they've ditched Mods already...

    Nevermind I switched colors and see it now @MoodyBlues

    Was that a G1 you saw it on?

    Just checked my beater phone running LineageOS 15.1 and it's got the abbreviated day/date (Tue, Jan 8).

    Having the date up there? 0r having it truncated? The answer to both: no.
    Wait...what? I hadn't heard this.
    As per my OP:
    "New: Moto Z² Force Edition, Oreo 8.0.0"

    According to the rumour I read the other day, they haven't.

    (Though it's a tricky thing, the Moto Mods feature: they have the drawback of constraining the size and shape of the phone to be the same year-on-year, so sooner or later they will have to make a call. But they are already the longest-lasting modular phone system I can think of, and by a significant factor).

    The launcher does not change the way the date is displayed in the quick menu, unfortunately.

    I've tried many launchers, but none--and I especially mean Nova!--has come close to ADW Launcher 1 EX (the paid version). Its plethora of options makes this KDE Linux user feel right at home. :D

    Good try ;), but...nope.:(

    "Settings | Date & Time" was the first place I looked when I noticed the abbreviated day and month in my new phone's notification area. There are no formatting settings as shown for the Galaxy Tab 4 in the article.

    Screenshot_20190122-181957.png

    The article's "Select Date Format" doesn't exist for me when I choose "set date"...or anywhere else.

    But my old phone's date options are exactly the same...and if you refer back to my OP, you'll see that "I've gone through every date/time format setting I can find, both system and launcher, and can't find a way to get the extended date on my new phone." :thinking:

    Slide the automatic switch over.. You can manually do that.

    Honey, I did that; that's how I found out that:
    The article's "Select Date Format" doesn't exist for me when I choose "set date"...
