If you have a smartphone with a very big display, then you know it is not easy to access all part of the display at all times. One area you may struggle to access is the notification panel, you have to tilt the phone a bit just to reach the top of the phone to pull down the notifications to see the ones that demand your attention.
This may not be the case for those of you using smartphones with customized UIs including those from Samsung, Xiaomi and a many others but it is for those using stock Android, mostly found on Google and Nokia smartphones. On smartphones by these brands, you have to pull down the notification panel the traditional way unlike with most Custom UIs that allow you to pull down the notification from any part of the display by swiping down. With some manufacturers, you can even use the fingerprint sensor to pull down the notification bar. A convenient way if the fingerprint sensor is easily accessible when you are using your phone.
With Android Q, things will change as Google will include native support to pull down the notification bar from any part of the display. This may seem like a mundane option but it is better for the user experience and specifically for those with smartphones with very big displays. This update is available on the latest beta of Android Q and we should hopefully see it roll out to the final release later in the year.
