Galaxy S5: different weather information between Lock screen and Home widget

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

Q: I have different weather information between Lock screen and Home widget. What's the problem?


A: Weather information shown on the Lock screen displays the weather based on the current location and it can't be changed.

However, the weather widget on the Home screen displays the weather based on a city which you selected, and it can be changed.
