Hello

Is there any way to remove the "hole punch" on the screen that is caused by the Front Camera (selfie-camera)?
i.e. I want the phone to stop using the top few rows of pixels beside the camera.

This is particularly important when using the whole screen
e.g. to watch videos that use the whole screen?

Background
I am planning to buy a new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus 5G (UK version).
However not being able to get rid of the hole-punch will be a deal-breaker issue for me.

Hi @ship691  The Hide toggle notch appears to have been removed  via the settings Android 11.  https://www.slashgear.com/samsung-one-ui-3-0-android-11-removes-option-to-hide-the-camera-cutout-076...  However there is a workaround   if members  use Good Lock which is available from  the Galaxy Store.  In the  Multistar  module  it is possible to set apps not to overlap with the camera area.
