I hope in samsungs next One UI update they allow the cover screen to display when the phone is closed shut. Instead of it remaining black it's kinda weird. As someone who's used flip phone before, when you close the phones you will see the cover display and time highlight before going black.

And also a not so stiff mechanic when opening and closing the phone, if that's possible with the flex screen display. It would make it easier for those of us who want to answer and end calls by opening and closing the phone. But it's too stiff and difficult to do.

Hello tiny78fish, Thank you for being part of the Community. We understand how disappointing it is to not be able to use the cover screen when the phone is closed.

Here is an article with lots of information on using the using cover screen to see your notifications, Quick settings, widgets, date, and time. https://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00086022/

You can also download the Good Lock app that has several modules to allow you additional options and features for the cover screen. https://galaxystore.samsung.com/detail/com.samsung.android.goodlock?langCd=en
