    Default Android 11 cliock display settings

    I'm still getting to know my new Samsung Flip3 5g phone. One issue I have is getting the clock to display exactly how I want it. What I would like is for the clock to display seconds in digital format, e.g.16:47:36.
    The normal clock display only does hours and minutes. I can specify an analog clock widget that goes on the cover display that displays a second hand. When the lock screen activates (I have it set to blank), if I double click it I get a hh:mm clock display for about 5 secs. If I tap that clock while it is displaying I do get a hh:mm:ss display, but only for about 10 secs, then it all reverts. I have not found any way to modify any of that.
    Google support says

    • Open your phone's Clock app .
    • Tap More. Settings.
    • Tap Display time with seconds.

    My phone doesn't have "more" settings there, and I can't find "Display time with seconds" anywhere. It maybe that Samsung have disabled that for some reason.

    Any suggestions?

    Samsung, and some other brands, put their own 'skin' and own default apps on the phone.
    It wont be a bog standard Android .

    "Google support says" will be for stock Android .
    So , you'll need to search for instructions for your exact phone .

    That link doesn't cover what I am after, which is to able to display seconds. However I have found a clock app that does, which will do for those occasions when I need it.
    In general I am pleased with the phone. MY gripes have come from getting to grips with Android 11 after Android 8 on my older phone, and the fact that it does chew through the battery a bit.

    Yes, I'd come to that conclusion. However see my response to Piroska.
