You can give this one a try and if it has no magnet in it simply buy a smal neodym magnet and glue i ...

S-view windows on the front side for flip-covers on your Aliexpress links are completely dis-aligned to how and where Metal displays Clock and Music controls, see a screenshot from Metal by @alcastemarin (Comment 5 in the thread [Discussion] Bug report)

PS: I've already once naively purchased similar 'luxury' flip-cover marketed for another phone model, I asked and ALiexpress seller told me that everyting fits and aligns perfectly, but when it arrived it was useless, too short and too wide, and front side S-Windows absolutely did not align.

Not to say that it was cheap PU instead of luxury genuine leather. It was not much, but I insisted and eventually got the money returned back.

Doesn't the screen switch off automaticlly after a while when the flip cover is closed?
That is what I see in mine when placing a magnet on the top left corner to simulate the cover closing.

First the weird blocky screensaver with the clock is shown and then after a while the screen turns off.

You're right regarding that olefoner.
But when the cover moves, even so little, the screen will lit up again.

Be careful: this flip-over case has no loudspeaker hole, as original one that come with phone.  Also, microphone is covered, so if you want to make a call, case must be fully opened.
With original ulefone cover you can dial a number, close a cover and continue with conversation...

I'm using the original flip-case with magnet.

I hope they release a fix to the useless clock, because I prefer using some "Smart settings" like "Flip mute calls" and "Flip mute alarms" that use the magnet.

We have plans to remove the leather part of the smart display, the new version will solve this problem.

Nice, good news. An option to disable the smart display would be also very useful for those who like the original flip case.

The screen turns on a lot when the phone is in the pocket with body movements.
