Hey All.
I have always used AOD as a night clock whilst its charging vertically.
But with this phone the AOD always goes off after about an hour.
Which sort of defeats the point of the feature really.
the setting is set to ALLDAY aswell.
is this a fault or is this how it is with phone.

Possibly power management of some type shutting it down?
I use to think always on AOD was a darling... now I only use tap on.
Lol, I sort of like how yours behaves; it waits for you to go to sleep.

pretty sure i have looked at most settings that could possibly effect this.
maybe its just the way it is.
it kinda bugs me at night when i wake up disorientated not knowing the time.
always something i have been used to with previous phones.

I hear you. Best to ignore the phone and sleep.
Always being "connected" detrimental to your wellbeing. Quiet time is very underrated.

Lots of power management settings scattered throughout the phone, usually.
Check to see if global power management is running first: Developer options>standby apps, all buckets should show as active otherwise power management is active. It can't be disabled here though.

Check each apk being used for AOD. Make sure they have needed permissions and that battery saving isn't checked.

Disable any power management including Android, 3rd party, carrier or manufacturer ones.

Try in Safe mode.
Clear system cache and AOD data.
Make sure screen lock isn't interfering with AOD.
With a factory reset even if it works the issue will likely reoccur. Exception is if a 3rd party app altered user hidden settings, this can and does occasionally happen with poorly written apps. Sometimes only after you uninstall them🤣

Play with it, find the root cause... fun isn't it?
