How to force apps into full screen on the Samsung Galaxy S8
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a stunning display, but quality is not the only thing that differentiates it from the crowd. The phone is narrower and taller than others, thanks to its 18.5:9 screen ratio. This is an unusual practice, but it does make the phone easier to handle, while keeping that Infinity display looking sharp. The only issue is most apps are not optimized for it.
Some applications actually don’t take advantage of that extra space, leaving weird black bars above the navigation buttons and below the notification area. Thankfully, there is a solution for those of you who find this annoying. Apps can essentially be stretched to properly fit your screen.
