I’m not familiar with Android Stack Exchange so apologies in advance if I am asking this in the wrong place or word something wrong.
Recently I replaced a damaged screen with a new one on my Samsung A8 2018. I noticed pretty quickly that the screen digitizer seems to go over the display itself by a couple pixels on both the top and the bottom. This is pretty annoying as it cuts off some of the information I need to read that is located there (such as notification bar).
I think that the solution to this would be to scale the screen down vertically just by a couple pixels on either end but do not know how to do this. I have tried this , but the scaling starts underneath the notification bar which does not help me. The phone is not rooted (but I do plan to root it in the near future so any solutions that involve rooting are still helpful) and I do use adb for super basic things once in a while.
Does anyone know of any apps or of an adb command that could scale down the entire length of the display and leaving the empty areas of the screen black?
