Ever wondered how you can get the most out of your Galaxy Note 8 Always On Display? If you have, this guide will walk you through the various customization options that are available. You can change the look of the clock, switch up the backgrounds and even add a custom image to the display.

Samsung introduced the Always On Display feature with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge last year and has since made improvements to the feature for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8.
