Bug Description

I am a happy user of the bq phone but, as most of smartphone users, the 90% of the times that I look at the phone is just to see what time it is.

I would expect that there is an option to configure the notifications in the center of the lock screen circle (the one that counts the day of the month) to actually show the time or other interesting infos instead of the summary of the daily activity, for at least two reasons.

The first is that it would be very nice to have an analog or digital clock that appears in the center of the bq cover, that was for free with the phone, instead of having to actually open the cover to see the clock, which is now covered by the cover (the action of opening it requires two hands to avoid dropping the phone).

The second reason is that I already know how many sms I sent (none), and I don't really care. And neither I care of how many calls I made today (none), nor how many Telegram messages I sent, and so on.
I might care on my battery level or the temperature or the weather though. The things showed there now are all pretty useless for me.

Also the notifications, the incoming calls, the calendar events, and so on are not shown there, that is where I would expect them to be, but are in the upper part of the screen, which is covered by the cover.
So to see anything of any utility one has to pick the phone with two hands and open it, which is rather uncomfortable.

I was going to post something about this but I'm glad someone explained it nicely and with easy words.

The lock screen circle is useless. There is no other way to define it. It's probably the biggest screw up in Ubuntu Touch UX.

This circle is screaming to get a clock in it, and to get notifications in it, and call information and actions, instead of useless info on how social or not social you have been on a day.

It could have been SO nice, so useful, if just common sense had been applied to its design. I can't imagine how it somehow ended up being the utter failure it is.
