    Hello. I have OnePlus 7 with Android 10 beta and most of the time the bar which shows battery, clock etc. is hidden. Is this a bug, a setting thing or just very poor design? I have the setting which hid the front camera (did this with Android 9). I tried to find a setting to get it shown but didn't find.

    Welcome to the forums. Can you find the notch option under settings - display?

    Nope. I have my OS in Finnish but I searched the Finnish word for it at settings and found nothing. Nothing on the bar settings either

    Here's how it shows in Chrome. I must slide the bar down in order to see time and battery

    Okay, this is getting even weirder. It totally doesn't show the bar like that for me, taking a screenshot edited? :O

    Strange. Do you mean that you didn't see the status bar when you took the screenshot but it shows you as normal in it?

    Yeah. It only shows correctly in the screenshot. Most of the time (when I'm using an app, when I'm on "desktop" bar is showing correctly) the top bar shows like this to me. When I took the screenshot it appeared as a white bar with the information. It has never appeared as white for me before, I think.

    I think it has something to do with the setting which hides the notch. I haven't found a setting which reveals the notch anymore after I updated this phone to Android 10 Beta

    I see, that picture explains the issue very well. The notch is hidden leaving the top part of the screen empty. I'm not sure where that setting went in the Open Beta. Let me ask around.

    Just in case, take a look in the Developer Options or use the search option in the settings for words like notch, hide or status bar.

    Okay, I found a notch settings from the developer options. I wasn't a developer before. When I try to switch it to default it reveals the noth for a small moment and then it switches back to the same as it was in the latest picture

    For me it's "device's default setting" or such, I don't have "none"-option. I think the device's default setting is to hide the notch so it wont show or something?

    It's not the worlds end if it doesn't work but I wanted to tell you this to know if it's a bug or something to develop

    Not sure what else to suggest, sorry. I haven't found a similar report anywhere else. I'll keep an eye open and post back if I find anything about this problem.

    You could report this issue on the Open Beta feedback forum. I searched in there and didn't find anything about notch problems.

    I guess this issue is a Beta bug, probably to be fixed in the next update.

    I posted this issue on the OnePlus community thread as it's a major bug.
    Basically if you have the notch disabled and flash to Android 10 beta then you will no longer be able to re-enable the notch.
