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

THis is a great question. I just cant glance at that bar without getting close and squinting, its very very awful and on my (former) S8 wasnt so tiny. Just as you i do NOT want to change the size of anywhere else or use the magnifier. Its a shame this cant be fixed many are asking same question. Is Samsung working on a fix (anyone?) or is there a small app that does just that change? TY TY good luck all.

There are a few visibility options for the Quick Panel in Good Lock. Unfortunately, there are no ways to make it larger, but perhaps a different theme may help. Just search Good Lock in the Galaxy Store.

If you use a photo on home screen you can edit the photo using the built in editor to draw narrow black bar on the top of the photo. Reinstall the photo on home screen after editing. Doesn't change any sizes but the text and icons show up much clearer.

I currently use a Galaxy A12 (Android 13, UI Core Version 5.0). If you go to Settings > Accessibility > Visibility Enhancements > Magnification > Tap on the Magnification shortcut - this will place a small icon bottom right of the screen, click it and a blue line surrounds the screen, whilst highlighted touch and hold your finger on the part of the screen you want to magnify, keep touching and you can move your finger around to view whatever you want. Good for lots of situations, emails, texts, reading documents, zooming into images etc. You can turn the magnification on/off by clicking the little icon.

I would also like to have possibility to increase font size of upper bar (time, % of battery etc.) in Samsung Android 14. It is quite unreadable now. It is possible ? Thank you.
