The navigation and status bar is not noticeable on the S10's home screen because they are transparent. The status bar will also change colors to match many apps. Unfortunately, the same thing cannot be said about the navigation bar.
The navigation bar is still displayed in its old opaque layout that captures image space when using most apps. Previously, Samsung gave you the opportunity to hide the navigation bar with a small button located on the left side of the bar. With S10 this option has been cast in favor of gesture-based navigation functions.
Compared to the traditional navigation bar, the new gestures release the real estate screen of your S10 for a more immersive experience. They are even better than the old method of automatically hiding the hub field, because gesture controls delete the extra step of tapping a button after swiping up to display the navigation bar.
Activate gesture controls
To try the new gestures and get rid of the navigation bar, go to Settings and select "View". From there, tap the "Navigation bar" and then select "Fullscreen events" to activate the function. You will see three tabs at the bottom of the screen and let you know where to initiate the gestures – if you do not want them, turn off "Gesttips" at the bottom of the same menu.
Now you just need to pull up where you used to tap. So all you have to do is turn from top to bottom left to open the multitasking interface, swipe from the center to go home or swipe from bottom to right to go back.
These options will turn if you changed the "Button Order" option in the "Navigation Bar" menu above. Home will still be in the middle, but back will be on the left and multitasking will be on the right.
