I'd like to use the Fold 3 as a night clock, positioned next to the bed, with the phone unfolded to the right angle and the AOD displaying on the outer small display - now being vertical and thus easily seen from bed only upon opening your eyes.

The problem is - before you reach this 90-degree position the outer display is shut off and the internal display comes on.

Anyone have an idea how this might be achievable?

Let me try - it seemed to me it flipped sooner :mad:)

You are right - at least on A12 now it's OK. I seem to remember it flipped sooner on A11, but maybe imagining things now... :mad:)

OK - so this is what confused me: I was opening the phone with the AOD on already - there it flips to the internal display immediately once you open it slightly.

If you keep the screen on, you can open to like 80 degrees and then turn the screen off - the AOD comes up still on the external display.

I just use a wireless charging stand. It can be charged landscape if that's what you want, but I keep mine portrait. The angle of the stand works well for me. I got it on Amazon and it is the one covered in fabric, a nice modern look to it.

I found an easier way: :mad:)

- Close the phone.
- Turn it on.
- Open it slightly, so display doesn't switch.
- Turn it off - AOD will come on.
- Now you can open to any angle - AOD will stay outside! :mad:)

    1. While the phone is folded, open camera app.
    2. Choose "selfie on the right top corner
    3. Unfold the phone to 90°
    4. Turn off phone's screen
    5. ???
