Notch seems to have notched up some laurels for many smartphone makers worldwide. First, it was Apple (iPhone X), and then ASUS, OPPO, Vivo, and Huawei have introduced notch on the screen of their smartphones. OnePlus didn’t want to miss the bus, and this brand too joined the bandwagon. The celebrated OnePlus 6 came with a notch. Without notch, the screen size of the OnePlus 6 is six inch; but this notch makes the screen 6.28 inches. Many users find this irritating and therefore, they want to get rid of this display cutout. If you want to hide this notch, here is how to disable the notch on OnePlus 6.
If industry leaders are to be believed, notch doesn’t really add to the beauty of the beast, i.e., OnePlus 6. If the notch had worked in iPhone X, there was a reason: the bottom bar is the same width as the bezels at the top. The notch in iPhone X creates an all-screen front. OnePlus six has failed to create this magic, as the width of the bezels at the top and bottom do not match with each other.
Unlike the notch in iPhone X, the cutout in OnePlus 6 is not practical. When you keep notch activated, you will see two extra lines of text while browsing on your OnePlus 6 and one added line in the settings pane.
The crux of the matter is that notch doesn’t make any notable change in the appearance of your OnePlus 6. You can easily hide the notch in your OnePlus 6 by following a simple method.
How to Disable Notch on OnePlus 6
Step #1. Launch Settings on your OnePlus 6.
Step #2. Scroll the options and tap on Display.
Step #3. You need to choose Notch display.
Step #4. Next, tap on Hide the notch area.
Step #5. You can see black bars on both sides of the notch.
When you hide notch on your OnePlus 6, you eliminate the irritation linked with the cutout. Even after removing the notch, you will see this cutout when you keep the display under sunlight. Note that the black bars are capable of hiding the notch in everyday usage.
