How can I see the time with seconds on a Nexus 4? The settings give me the option to only change the date format, but not the time format.

  • @dotVezz Anywhere possible. I looked in all those places and couldn't find a way to show seconds. So, I'm looking to be able to just see the seconds.

  • Changing to Analog will show seconds hand, that's the only way I could find.
