Hi.

I'd love to increase the size of the status bar content so I can read it. 

I'd rather not increase the size of anything else, such as the fonts and text of apps and websites. 

Many thanks

I take it that you mean the top bar with battery, WiFi, clock etc ?

@S20fe5gUK: Sadly it isn't possible to increase the size of the Status Bar and it's contents. As a possible workaround, please head to Settings > Accessibility > Visibility Enhancements > Magnifier Window > Magnifier Window Shortcut, and toggle this option on. When active, this will open a window over the screen that zooms in to enlarge the content underneath, and may be useful when trying to make out some of the Status Bar icons. I hope this helps.

I think that you may also find a custom status bar app on the play store that may be suitable for you.

Not specifically, i just had a look for you and there are a lot of different options available. I like to use pop up notifications or bubbles on mine tbh. Or widgets are good for easy access. They're size adjustable as well. Play store or samsung store. Any problems just message me 👍
