Prior to last software on my Samsung s22 while I was on the phone, I could see notifications in my status bar. Since the last software update, I think it was version 13, there is a phone icon with a timer of how long I've been on the phone, that hijacks my status bar. I know I'm on the phone, if I want to know how long I've been on the phone, I know how to find that out. While I'm on the phone it's more important for me to know if I receive a text, email, other notification. Please change that back or make it an option to turn it off and get notifications back on the status bar while on the phone. Thank you. See screenshot.

I haven't really used a 3rd party option ever, so I personally couldn't help with confirming any app does/doesn't do it, but I'd give the first obvious choice a try: Google's own Phone app.
