To setup a Digital Wall clock you just need to configure your mobile in the Developers options

Go-To Settings>Developer Options>Activate Developer Options>Check Stay Awake>Exit

NOTE: Keep your phone on charging to use the stay awake feature.

To use a bright clock, you can download one from Google Play Store. In this Instructable I have used Giant Clock(downloaded from Play Store).
In this application there is an inbuilt stay awake option as "Screen Active" Hence, used here.

You can download and use any other suitable application if you feel like.

Step 3: The Back Cover and Foam Tape

Take your mobile's back cover and clean it with a dry piece of cloth

Take an half inch Foam tape cut it and apply it on the Back cover as shown in the picture.
Remove the protective paper from the Foam tape & you can put on the cover on your mobile.

Now it's ready to be used as a wall clock!!

Step 4: Starting the Wall Clock.
