    The small screen on the front of the Galaxy Z Flip (when it's folded closed) is called the "Cover Screen" and it can be used to activate several quick shortcuts:
    • Double tap to wake the cover screen
    • Swipe right to view notifications
    • Tap the time to view network status
    • Swipe right to answer or left to reject an incoming call.

    I can see that little screen being pretty damned handy. Not sure I would personally get mush use out of it. I did hear the flipping open and closed is super satisfying, so I would probably just open it every time :)

    Is that a stay on always time display ?

    I'm guessing, but I would think there is an option for it to be. Maybe only when phone is closed.

    Nope. You have to tap on it twice or alternatively press the power button. You can swipe it to see notifications and tap on the notification symbols for one line messages.
    You can swipe on it to answer (swipe right) or not answer (swipe left) the phone.
    It gives the initial charging indicator with percentages.
    It can also be used as a mini screen for selfies. Not very good for that – too small.
