Hide the Home Button on Galaxy S8 Always-On Display

Customizing the Always On Display of your Galaxy S8 is a must. You basically have to head to Settings, Lock screen and security, then to Always On Display and as you know, there are no less than six different main clock styles to choose from: digital clock, analog clock, world clock, calendar, image, as well as edge clock. They’re all pretty self-explanatory, so the choice is all yours, just as the fact that the story continues.

After all, thanks to the organic screen technology Samsung uses, it can power some pixels all of the time without wasting battery life and there’s much more to know about this “always on” display.
