One of the most annoying things about Samsung’s notification panel is that, by default, hide the glow bar. This does not make much sense in such a common function, but Samsung forces us to move the bar twice if we want to access the brightness bar, which is at the bottom. If we want the glow bar always appear above so that you can change it more easily, you have to click on the icon with the three small dots in the upper right corner.
