hello, my new phone just arrived.
i'd like to enable the navigation bar (software buttons) to give some rest to my thumb (less vertical movement).
I'd accept even an app if it's going to work like the original one, that is: to "dock" on the bottom of the screen, actually making the viewing screen smaller.
Yes, I'm ok to sacrifice screen space.
I tried few apps and they overlap the content of the screen, actually preventing me to see or tap on important parts.
Is there any non-root method? or any rooted method?
Any help is appreciated

in the end i decided to root and use the build.prop method.
Very nicely working, only minor problem found is with original camera app: the navbar doesn't hide and overlaps some controls.
I guess the problem to exists because samsung's apps don't care about the navbar, none of their phone have it.
I tried to first solve with tasker, but the plugin i bought (for the action was missing) didn't work. (refunded)
Then i searched for an xposed module, and found this "force immersive mode". Much better, but the controls are still cut in a half.
