The Galaxy S20 lineup, which a month ago included the S20 FE in its lineup in Europe, is one of the most notable phone families this year on Android. For this generation, Samsung has opted for a perforation of its screen, located in the central part of it.
When using one of these Galaxy S20s, this piercing is not a problem, but some users may want to hide it while using certain apps, like Netflix or YouTube, for example. Samsung’s unique user interface makes it possible to hide such a perforation when using specific applications.
The most common Galaxy S20 problems and how to fix them
The Galaxy S20 lineup suffers from some issues that affect many users, the most common solutions to these issues are very simple.
Hides the perforation of the Samsung Galaxy S20
As you know, One UI is a customization layer that gives us a lot of options. One of the functions we have for these Galaxy S20s is the ability to hide the perforation. This is a feature built into full screen apps, so this perforation is hidden when we open this app, for example when opening Netflix or YouTube. So we will have no problems with this and will reproduce this content without perforation on the screen. The steps to do this are:
- Open the settings.
- Enter the Screen section.
- Access full screen applications.
- Click on the three vertical dots.
- Enter advanced settings.
- Enable the Hide camera opening option.
By hiding the front camera of the phone, the perforation we have on the screen will be hidden. It may be comfortable when using certain apps or there may be some users who are uncomfortable with the hole punch that is on the Galaxy S20 screen. It’s not an annoying piercing, but this way everyone can customize the look of the phone a bit more.
Instead of the perforation, a black band is displayed at the top of the phone screen. For some users, viewing certain applications may be more comfortable this way.
