Brave not taking advantage of the Galaxy s8+ screen


#1

I was surprised when i switched to the Galaxy s8+ and downloaded brave browser (my favorite one) and saw The two black bars on the top & bottom of the screen… This really made me consider uninstalling it.

Device: Galaxy s8+
Android version: 7.0
Samsung exprienxe version: 8.1

Strange, lets see if the andoid dev has some info :wink:
cc @serg for information

@Scorpiax7 Which version are you using?? This seems similar to https://github.com/brave/browser-android-tabs/issues/245 which has been fixed and should be available in the next release. Would you mind checking the screenshot posted on the issue and confirm if its similar?


#4

Well mine is different, the black bars just appears as soon as i open brave


#5

Is the bar retained after the app is opened? Or does it clear once the tab is completely loaded?


#6

It appears as soon as i open the bar… Doesn’t change if i closed tabs or opened new ones :sweat_smile:


#7

Could you confirm if this is on the latest build ?


#8

Yep… Running on the latest stable build of brave

Brave 1.0.21, Chromium 58.0.3029.83
