    Hello

    Is there any way to remove the "hole punch" on the screen that is caused by the front/selfie camera?
    i.e. I want the camera to stop using the top few rows of pixels.

    This is particularly important when watching videos tha use the whole screen.

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

    There is no way. You can get wallpapers that blend the hole in.

    Is there no "Hide Front Camera" on the Galaxy Note 10 Plus?

    And are there no apps that will do this?

    What about if I "root" the phone?

    When you are using the full screen mode (e.g. watching a movie), do the edges get used or is there a line of unused pixels, so as to visually hide the camera?

    You could try Nacho Notch. From what I can tell in the reviews, it should still work in One UI 3.0.

    (Apparently, Samsung removed the "Hide Notch" system option in One UI 3.)

    A potential problem with this is it'll black out the top notification area (except for notifications themselves) on all screens. So if watching a movie, playing games, etc, you'll still cut off part of the viewable area.
