    Noticed it before. Not sure what samsung is thinking. Defiantly a waste of space. Can't think of a reason for that space. Doesn't bother me though but it really shouldn't be there.

    I use Nova Prime on my Note 8. I have no gap.

    Nova makes it better. No gap and I can even have widgets overlap to really tighten up the screen. Totally worth the money.

    Using Nova, I opted to hide the notification bar on my home screen (it only shows up when I'm in an app). The widget I use on my home screen displays all the important info I want to see, so the notification bar is kind of redundant and unnecessary.

    Using action launcher or rootless pixel launcher I've got no issues whatsoever. Honestly the only reason I don't use samsung's launcher is the "swipe down" action pulls up the app drawer. Should be notification shade IMO.

    If you look at the screenshot I posted. There is a significant amount of screen real estate that can't be used for anything. Essentially a waste of space on the home screen. Nova Launcher is a home screen replacement app that is highly customizable. No root required.

    Go into home screen settings and change it.

    I use Nova Launcher and don't notice a gap at all. With Nova, there's more or less gap depending on your grid settings. I don't normally have a grid setting as shown below, but I did this as a test . The whole screen is usable from what I can see.

    Well it's there and it is a problem if you want to fit more on your home screen. I was moving and adding widgets on my girlfriend's s8 and it was driving nuts I keep having to use more home screen pages. This problem is solved by using Nova Launcher.

    I really thought I was the only person who noticed/bothered by this. I'm not alone but yes OCD is a *****.
