Bedside clocks have been around for a very long time. While we started off with conventional clocks, digital clocks came after some time. Today, we use both clocks depending on our tastes, and it’s impossible to imagine a life without a clock. However, given that smartphones come with clocks now, the utility of a digital clock has somewhat diminished. What’s more is that there are several dedicated clock apps that can help you see the time on your device.
But what about bedside clocks? Well, there are a handful of apps that let you use your phone as a bedside digital clock with the ability to support full screen functionality. We’re going to talk about five of these full screen clock apps today. All five have been picked depending on their performance and user reviews, so you’re sure to find your pick here.
Let’s have a look.
5 Best Full Screen Clock Apps with Large Display for Android
As the name suggests, this is a massive digital clock. This can take up the entire screen display to turn your phone into a conventional bedside digital clock. There are multiple customization options available here, so you can change the look of the clock as you like. The app settings allow you to change the orientation, enable seconds view (or disable it), change the clock color as well as the background color. If you’re planning to use this as a bedside clock, then it makes sense to use it in landscape mode. The app has an auto mode which will adjust the view of the clock based on how your phone is rested.
The app can also show you your next alarms, with days if your alarm is not on the same day. However, this app doesn’t have a space for date and day. This, we feel is a wasted opportunity given that there’s so much unused space. However, considering the fact that the developers are aiming for a conventional digital clock, these omissions can be overlooked. This is an independently developed application, and is free to download. There are no ads or in-app purchases on board. You can use devices as old as Android 3.0 with Big Digital Clock.
The name of the app leaves no ambiguity about what it offers. It’s a clock app that comes with full-screen functionality. The customization options available here, however, give it a significant advantage over the competition.
You can use a variety of styles, fonts as well as colors to update the look of your bedside clock each day. It can also display the date, which is handy and a feature that’s lacking from other clock apps. Color choices are somewhat limited here, though, with only 7 to choose from. There are 15 fonts and styles on board, which is welcome. This is a relatively new app on the Play Store, but for a fullscreen clock app, this gets the job done.
There are no ads here or in-app purchases, so you can easily replace your default clock app with this. Fullscreen Clock works with devices running Android 4.0 and above.
This is perhaps one of the most comprehensive full screen clock apps available out there, thanks to the array of information it can offer in one screen. While some clock apps like the ones we’ve talked about above can only offer time and other sparse information, this app makes sure to include info like date, day, as well as the battery percentage. There’s also a small icon on top displaying your alarms, making this a comprehensive bedside fullscreen alarm clock.
The best feature here is that the app can autostart when you plug your device to the charger. This is convenient if you charge your phone at night time, but as I imagine, this can be quite annoying if you usually charge your phone during the day. Additional customization options include the ability to change the background color, and assign each color for a parameter, easily helping you differentiate between multiple data available on the screen. Given the format, this app is ideal for use if you have a mobile dock on your bedside.
The app is a free download on the Google Play Store and comes with ads. There are no in-app purchases, however. The app works with smartphones and tablets running Android 4.1+.
This is an excellent live wallpaper which can be used as a bedside clock depending on your battery usage. However, it’s always advised to connect your phone to a charger while using an app like this. Along with the time, the app can also display the date as well as the day. There is a small seconds indicator as well, which is great with specificity in mind. You can choose between 24-hour and 12-hour clocks here, while the ability to adjust the colors of the clock as well as the background are available here.
You can even set the time the clock will glow on your screen, which is an excellent feature keeping battery conservation in mind. The app is free to download, but is ad-supported.
This is yet another cleverly designed fullscreen clock app that offers the ability to customize the colors as well as the backgrounds. The brightness can be adjusted as well, and there are a total of nine fonts that you can choose from. In addition to showing the time, the app will also display the date, day as well as a battery percentage indicator. It’s a simple app with no flashy features, but sometimes, that’s all we need.
Naturally, you can remove the parameters that you don’t find important. For example, you can have a clock with just the time and nothing else. This can make the app feel less cluttered and keep it simple with little data. Fullscreen Digital Clock is a free download on the Play Store and comes with ads. The app works with devices running Android 4.2 and up.
