Hi everyone

I'd love to see the date in the status bar at the top of my Galaxy S mobile phone. 

I've tried various apps and none of them consistently show the date (day of month and month) in the status bar without disappearing now and again or being the wrong font or floating oddly, etc. 

I know that it is possible as it exists on my Samsung Tab.

Can I submit this request for the next update? I've been hoping this would come out in the next OS for many years. 

Thanks

Install Samsung's Good Lock app from the Galaxy Store, then find the QuickStar module. In QuickStar, go to Clock settings, then toggle on Show Date.

Also, can we add seconds in the status bar?
(If this is the case, the date format in the status bar would need to be changed as well, for example, "7:52:03 PM Sun 11/12".)Screenshot_20231112_195054_QuickStar_1000015302_1699847455.png

Unfortunately, we cannot. 😢 This setting only impacts the clock on the quick panel. The reason might be the space restrictions created by the placement of the front camera.

Oh. Maybe it might work on tablets, you know.

Hi There

Thanks, I have tried QuickStar before.

However, is there a way of adjusting the Date when "Show Date" is on?

The date is showing as "Fri, 17 Nov" and wipes out all other notifications. Can this be adjusted to just "17 Nov" or even "17/11"?

If not, can it be submitted as a feature request please?

Thanks

The available options in QuickStar are pretty much the only way to adjust the date. This can definitely be submitted as a feature request! The mods will tag this post so that the proper dev team will be aware of the desired setting. If enough individuals request this feature, I'm sure Samsung will consider patching it in.

Android 5.0.2 and older did have a way to set the date format, you know.Screenshot_20231116_170231_QuickStar_1000048225_1700182952.pngScreenshot_20231116_170255_Settings_1000048227_1700182975.png
