How to remove notification tray brightness and volume controls on the LG G3


Notification tray space is at a premium, reclaim some of it by getting rid of those control sliders for volume and screen brightness

Notification tray space is at a premium on the LG G3, especially when – on some models, at least – there are slider controls for brightness and volume pre-activated in there. With these on, even that giant 5.5-inch QHD display has only about half the total space left available for, well, notifications.

Fortunately, if you don’t want them, you can make them go away. Unfortunately on some of the U.S. carrier variants things are a little different to the unlocked, international model. Let’s take a look at what’s what.

Enabling or disabling volume and brightness controls – International, Verizon and T-Mobile models

If you’re rocking one of the LG fresh, unlocked G3 models – either the 32GB/3GB or 16GB/2GB combination – or the U.S. centric Verizon G3 then this is what you need to do to show or hide as necessary:

  • Pull down the notification tray
  • Scroll all the way to the right through the quick settings toggles
  • Hit “Edit”
  • At the top of the menu displayed you’ll see options for “Brightness” and “Volumes”
  • Uncheck the box of whichever you don’t want to see in your notification tray
  • Success!
