Huawei Ascend 5w notifications bar too small


I bought the Huawei Ascend for my mother-in-law last month and the notifications bar at the top is really small. I can barely make out what the symbols are. Is there a way to make it bigger? I tried enlarging the display font on the phone, but it didn’t affect the notifications bar. Thanks!


Hi @lindsayb.10q72r,

You might try the following:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Scroll to, then tap Advanced settings.
  3. Tap Accessibility.
  4. Scroll to, then tap Magnification gestures.
  5. Toggle Magnification gestures on.

Triple tapping an area of the screen will then magnify it. Unfortunately, the magnification is intended to be temporary but perhaps it will help some.

The following also may or may not help:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap display.
  3. Tap View mode.
  4. Select Large.
