    Dear all, sorry if this has been covered already. I have a Realme X50 5G smartphone. It's great, except for the Google screen I cant get rid of!! I've turned off all that I can, I think, but the Google search bar, Snapshot icon remain! Maybe it's a case of I cant get rid of it! Anyone else come across this or know how to get rid or disable it? Thanks for any help and suggestions.

    Change your launcher.
    Go to the play store and do a search for launcher.
    Nova launcher is one of the best and is what I use

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    You can't just long press the search bar and delete it?

    I also would recommend the Nova launcher as well.

    Nova is ok.
    Personally, I like sleek and simple.

    KISS (yes, it stands for what you think) is my favorite for quite some time.

    At first, I did not think I was going to like it- but after about an hour I knew that it was what I wanted.

    Nothing is faster, or makes your device easier to work with.

    It actually learns your habits and becomes faster as you use it.

    Hi. I wish I could. I suppose it's not in my way but it's a screen I wont use. Don't know if it's part of the Realme OS or something Google thinks we should have. I'm sure some will find it useful. I'll have a look at Nova. Thanks.
