    I've noticed an interesting pattern going on with the on screen display. At times I see the clock display at the top of the panel, and other times it with appear in the middle. I'm assuming this has something to do with avoiding screen burn?

    Also, i find it quite interesting that at times I've notice the OSD displaying somewhat brighter than other times.

    Would anyone care to explain why?

    You mean AOD or Always On Display yes?

    The AOD screen will adjust acrfoegint to ambient light , just like auto -brightness on a phone screen. That’s normal.

    Which type of clock are you using? The I use with the numbers on top of each other stays in place and does not move around. Perhaps the one you are suing could be moving around because of just that— preventing screen burn in.

    It did that on my S7 also. It seems to move around.

    And my Note 8 does it also.

    Maybe it gets bored being in one place all the time?

    OK so im an idiot.

    As mentioned i use the one that has the numbers one on top of the other and YES it DOES move about... it’s certainly for helping to deter screen burn in. :rolleyes:

    I just never paid this attention until your post. I was sitting here looking at it and when i use the phone, set it down, the clock will move to a different place.
