Steps To Force Apps Into Full Screen On Samsung Galaxy S8

Actually, with a screen ratio of 18.5: 9, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is narrower and higher than the other phones. Although this is not common, it allows users to handle the phone more easily and still keeps the Infinity display looking sharp. However, most apps are not optimized for it.

Some don’t always make use of this extra space, there are weird black bars above the navigation buttons and below the notification area in some applications. However, the good news for you is that you can now make them fit your screen by stretching the apps.


It will be necessary to remind you that this can cause some complications depending on the application. In the process of adapting content to the screen, there will be parts that are cut  off or moved in. In particular, other than the occasional weird look, if you select applications differently, it still can affect your experience differently.
