I've updated my S23 and I'm very disappointed. Why, Samsung? Why don't you let people choose whether they want to use "circle and search" option or just simply hide the navigation pill in the bottom of the screen!

Many people are angry about it - the bar is taking the space of the screen and in our opinion it looks ugly. I know I will not use this feature (circle...) because I don't need it. 

 

Please, Samsung devs, let us hide the navigation bar, or just program the feature the other way. I regret updating my phone and feel angry every time I look at the screen. It's also worth to mention about AMOLED burns at the screen, where this useless bar is located.

If anyone has info if it is going to be fixed, please write a comment. Samsung, I'm begging you. And I wish to do it without using third party apps like Good Lock. It may consume more battery, I don't want it to run in the background...

We need an updated latest version of Navstar 6.1.05.39 to enable this function, however, we have to wait as Samsung hasn't released it yet.

I prefer not to rely on any app :( it shouldn't be the only way.

I hope someone from Samsung will reply as well

Samsung is moving more and more customizations to Good Lock. And it is the only app to switch on additional One UI options.
