I've been working with the new update the last few days, and noticed some odd changes made by Samsung.

Most annoying is this huge gap between my toggles and brightness slider/notifications. I have disabled the media controls and have no background apps running.

I think they attempted to make notifications easier to access for one hand operation, but we need a way to change this! Or give me the option to add all of my toggles into the gap!

I think it's the place for "Device and Media buttons". Try to activate in "Quick panel layout". There's "Show device and media buttons above notification" option. Maybe on then off.

Here. I have tried it off and on and it's the same gap. I can swipe for media controls at all times even though my running media app is closed.

That usually happen when no factory format is made between hard UI changes.

The objects and placeholders stay there even though they are empty. Have you tried a factory reset after UI3 update?

That also happened on KITKAT to Marshmellow and was a usual issue when the update wasn't factory reset afterwards.

The UI would update and new elements were put in place but the old ones would still be there and originated large gaps or invisible toggles.

    I don´t have that gap in my Note 10+. Just below the 6 icons I have the brightness slider. Weird.
