How to adjust Always On Display on Galaxy S10

The Always On Display is one of the popular features in the Galaxy S10 series, thanks in no small part to Samsung’s AMOLED display. AoD can be useful if you want some information to be regularly or consistently shown on the screen without doing anything. According to Samsung, AoD only uses a tiny bit of battery in order to light up the screen so if you can readily charge your phone every day, it’s a helpful feature.

If you choose to enable Always on Display on your Galaxy S10, there are many fantastic styles available for you. Some AoDs are digital while others look analog. Some AoD can show your calendars, display time zones, or prioritize appointments. Once you’ve selected the one that you like, confirm it by tapping on Done at the bottom.

Some AoD selections may provide more options like music playback, screen orientation (portrait/landscape), and many more. If you don’t need these and you’re concerned about battery consumption, we suggest that you turn AoD off entirely.
