Apart from Adguard, are there other ad blockers that not only block system wide ads but also remove the ad placeholder(I think that's what it's called) on the web page, instead of showing a grey box with sad smiley face where the ad is suppose to be?

Blokada works pretty good. Tried Samsung disconnect (Galaxy store). A bit pricy and recently started giving up on some ads..

Blokada works great for ad blocking. You will need to find it on the internet, as it is not in any store. The down side it is a VPN based app, even if you do not use the VPN portion of it.

But does Blokada remove the blocked ad placeholders?

At home. Doesn't really do anything for the rest of the time someone isn't at home.

This way should also work for Note 10 / Note 10+. Basically should work for any android device, after Pie.
