Rearrange Quick Settings

When the status bar opens, Samsung devices already have five quick settings at the top of the screen. Opening the quick settings displays all the settings.

Battery Percentage

By default, a Samsung device displays a battery icon with the corresponding charge status in the status bar. In the status bar settings, you can also display the battery as a percentage, which means that the charge status as a percentage is also displayed in addition to the battery icon.

Hide Camera Notch

The space taken up by the screen on the front of the Samsung device is becoming larger and larger, but space for the front camera is still needed. If some devices still have a notch, the camera is integrated into the screen on the latest models.

In terms of apps, this is a challenge, as the display is disturbed by the camera or notch. To avoid any problems, we can instruct the Samsung device to hide the notch/camera cutout. This means that the display is no longer projected across the entire screen, but only to the bottom of the notch/camera.
