Samsung always on display issue fix

After the recent One UI 6.1 update, several Samsung users have reported an issue with the Always On Display (AOD) feature when using LockStar. This issue displays clock numbers or apps overlap during the transition of time on the lock screen.

The issue is particularly noticeable when the time shifts in minutes and apps. For example, a user reported when the time progresses from 11:57 to 11:58, it results in the digits superimposing and creates a confusing display.

Several Galaxy users are affected by this issue, and the issue persists despite subsequent firmware updates. The overlapping issue on Always On Display after One UI 6.1 is not only a rare occurrence but happens frequently enough to cause significant concern among users.

In response, a community moderator has acknowledged the One UI 6.1 overlapping AOD issue. He stated that it occurs for those using the “Automatically Restart” function and confirmed a software update to resolve this issue.

However, due to the variable nature of software update schedules, a precise resolution date cannot be provided.

One UI 6.1 Always on Display issue

As a temporary solution, users are advised to either disable the Automatic Restart function through Settings >> Device Care >> Auto Optimization or to turn off LockStar entirely.

The inconvenience caused by this issue has been recognized, and users are asked for their patience while a permanent fix is in development.
