Adjust Notification Panel Settings
Samsung phones provide an in-built toggle tucked inside the Panel Layout Settings to adjust the position of the brightness bar on the notification panel. Here’s how you can access it on different Android and One UI versions to turn on the same.
On Android 12 with One UI 4.0 and Above
1. Swipe down your phone screen to access the Notification Panel.

3. Next, tap on Quick Panel Layout.
4. Further, press the Brightness Control option and switch it to Show Always.
5. Tap on Done to save changes.
That’s it! You can now view the adjustable brightness bar in the notification panel right above your device’s notification. Now, you don’t have to swipe twice to adjust brightness from the quick settings toggle.
On Android 11 with One UI 3.0 and Above
1. Swipe down the screen to view the notification panel.

That’s it! You’ve successfully relocated the brightness bar above the device notifications on your Samsung phone.
Use Custom Status Bar
If you can’t relocate the brightness bar or are tired of using your native Samsung notification panel, you can freshen things up by applying a custom status bar on your phone. A custom status bar on Android offers a whole bunch of customizations, like swipe gestures to adjust brightness or switching the default status bar on your phone with an iPhone or any other Android phone.
Toggle Brightness Manually with the Settings App
In addition to the adjustable brightness bar in the notification panel, you can control your device’s brightness by configuring the Display settings tucked inside the Settings app. Here’s how you can achieve the same:
1. Open the Settings app and tap on the Display option.
2. On the next page, adjust the brightness slider to control brightness intensity on your Samsung device.
