The happy notch has become fashionable among many Android manufacturers, and this is not something that we especially like, but of course it seems that we will have to live with it for a while, however much we dislike this design.
The truth is that since the iPhone X came out there have been applications on the App Store designed to disguise that notch by making the notification bar adopt a black color that makes the top of the terminal much more uniform. As it happens in other terminals like the Galaxy S9, with less use of the front, but with some design lines that, in our point of view, feel much better. And now, these applications are coming to Google Play.
As we have seen during this Mobile World Congress and in the successive weeks, Android phones with notch are here to stay, and unfortunately fashion is reaching all kinds of mobile phones, whether they are high-end, mid-range or low-end.
This displeases many users, but there are many others who are attracted to this type of design due to its similarities with the iPhone X, and we are sure that soon we will begin to see many people with the street with smartphones of this type . And, for this reason, some developers have already launched to create applications for that users of new Android phones with notch can disguise this characteristic section of the design of this type of terminals.
One of them is Nacho Noch, and is the best we have found, at the moment, to completely black out the notification bar in all applications. Thus, it will seem to us that we will “lose” so to speak, a small part of the screen at the top, in exchange for a greater sense of uniformity, and be able to take advantage of the notification bar as always.

The operation of this application is very simple, since there is no icon in the launcher or interface. Simply, we will have to activate the icon in the panel of quick adjustments of the notification bar, and, once this is done, activate it when we deem convenient. Once this is done, what will happen is that the notification bar – whether we have or not notch – will become completely black. A very simple and colorful method to make it look like there is notch, though, If you have an AMOLED technology screen, this application will work even better, since the color black are really dull pixels, and the notch is almost imperceptible.
