How to get new clock and design on the lock screen of your Galaxy S9, S8, S7 and other Samsung devices running Android Oreo

Ever since the release of the very first Galaxy S device, Samsung has dominated the industry standard for mobile displays. Over the years AMOLED screens have increased in size, pixel density, and largely in quality, and with it, the South Korean tech giant has also introduced a slew of features that make it even more appealing. One such wildly popular feature has been the AOD (Always On Display) screen of the Galaxy devices, which has not only stuck around since the Galaxy S6 but improved with time.

Samsung Good Lock 2018 APK: How to bypass region lock and use it on any Samsung Oreo device

With the recent release of the Good Lock app for Galaxy devices by Samsung, there’s a lot more that comes with interface and lock screen customizations. After extending the support for Good Lock to the United States, Samsung has included a new app called ClockFace, effectively bringing the ability to add new clock design elements to the Always On Display of your Galaxy device running Samsung Experience 9.0 that comes with the Android 8.0 Oreo update. However, if you aren’t among the lucky ones to receive the app already, you can simply sideload it by installing the APK files directly from XDA.
