Infinity Display is one of the main features of Galaxy S8/S8+ about which Samsung boasts. Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus features 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch screens, but with these insane screen sizes, Samsung has managed to keep the overall size of devices very manageable. However, one thing Samsung did out of the way and that is using 18.5:9 aspect ratio. This is different from most of the Android phones, so some of the apps don’t utilize the full screen and leave the black bars at bottom and top of the screen. You will get the point if you have watched 16:9 widescreen movies. In this post, we will tell you how to enable full screen apps on Galaxy S8/S8+.
Most of the apps available scale up to fill the entire screen, however, there are many apps in the market which don’t scale up and you have enabled full-screen apps on Galaxy S8/S8+ to fill the screen. Therefore, Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ has a quick setting option which makes all apps compatible with an aspect ratio of Galaxy S8. The developers will definitely update their apps so they could scale up and fill the screen automatically. But unless they are not updated, you can enable full screens apps to avoid those black spaces on the screen.
How To Enable Full Screen Apps on Galaxy S8/S8+
- Open Settings from your App drawer, or pull down the notification bar and tap gear-shaped icon near the top right to go to Settings.
- In Settings find Display and Tap on it.
- Now in Display Settings Tap on “Full-Screen Apps”.
- Here turn on the button for all the apps which are not highlighted.
That’s it! Now test the apps which are not running in full screen previously. They should now work fine in full screen. And we hope the developers will soon update their apps to support full screen by default.
