I've just upgraded to a Samsung S8, and the status bar at the top keeps disappearing! How do I get it to always be displayed when I'm on the home screen?


Well, this is embarrassing. When I first got my phone, google restored my previous desktop wallpaper, which is white at the top (it's a cloudy day photo).

On the S8, the status bar has no background, so I had white icons on the white wallpaper. This seems a little silly to me!

  • Note if I reset the wallpaper back to the same picture, it's clever enough to change the icon colours. So it's just an initial restore issue. – xorsyst Jan 9 '19 at 11:42
