Activate Samsung Galaxy S20 One-handed mode - Instructions

The larger the display, the more difficult it is to operate the smartphone with one hand. This is also the case with the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+ or S20 Ultra. All devices already have a very large display that is difficult to operate with one hand.


This is why Samsung has given its OneUI interface a very useful function. Namely the "one-handed mode". This shifts the display content so that you can operate the Samsung Galaxy S20 with one hand.
