Learn to Use Nacho Notch — Notch Hider to Hide Display Notch on ASUS ZenFone 5
The Essential Phone is a handset that features a bezel-less display with a cutout or a notch that housed the front-facing camera allowing for an edge to edge screen design. A notch has been first found on iPhone X and ever since Apple unveiled the handset, its users have been complaining about the notch.
The notch takes away space from the information in iPhone X’s status bar, it looks far from pleasant and it stops you from focusing on what you are doing, so why would ASUS even think of adding it on its ZenFone 5 too? Even Apple’s been encouraging its users and developers to embrace the notch and it did not happen, so it’s pointless.
Apparently this is what Asus says that its customers want: a special feature borrowed from iPhone X, yet the truth is another. The Zenfone 5 is a slim and sleek device, but the notch is no joy. The next version of Android is rumored to accommodate notches, so things are even worst about this trend, yet you should better learn to use Nacho Notch — Notch Hider to hide display notch on ASUS ZenFone 5.
First spotted by the XDA Portal team, this app hides the notch by placing a black bar all around it. To be more precise, Nacho Notch comes as a special app that colors the status bar black while the ASUS ZenFone 5 device is in the portrait orientation, making it a better fit with the notch.
