    Hello,

    I just received the phone and wow it's great. I'm coming off the Note 3.

    I had a few question

    Is there any way to tweak the size of the time and the battery icon and it's percentage since I find it very small.

    Also if there any way to remove or hide the persistent black navigation below the screen? I world love for it to get activated only when I scroll or when I need it. I feel this it taking away quite a lot of screen space when compared to the previous phone.

    I am assuming you are talking about the battery and time up in the status bar at the top of the phone? To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to change the size of these icons on the phone without rooting.

    Many apps automatically take the navigation bar off the screen when it's not being used, but there is not a way to do this for the phone as a whole without rooting.

    I noticed the same thing (I too come from the Note 3).
    There are other battery apps (GSam for instance) that will duplicate the battery icon (there are a couple different types to choose from). You may choose to have an icon in the notification bar at the the top or in the notification panel (pull down).

    Changing the font size in settings>display will make the time bigger, but it does not affect the battery icon.
