Android System UI Demo Mode

Android Demo Mode or Android System UI Demo Mode allows you to force the status bar into a fixed state, useful for taking screenshots with a consistent status bar state, recording screen video without those junky icons in the status bar, demonstrating features of system UI or testing different status icon permutations. System UI Demo Mode is one of the many developer tools in Android. Normally you need to enable developer options first in order to access this demo mode option. You can also use adb commands to change the appearance of the status bar in demo mode. Some devices have a shortcut to enable or disable System UI Demo Mode from the Settings. For example, on itel mobile phone, you can follow these steps to enable/disable demo mode.

Part 1. Turn on developer options on Android device

  • Open Settings;
  • Swipe down and tap on System;
  • Scroll down to the bottom and tap on About Phone;
  • Scroll down to the bottom to locate the Build number and keep tapping on it for 7 times
  • You will get a message saying, You are now a developer, which means the developer option is enabled.

Part 2. Turn on Demo Mode on mobile phone

Once the developer options are enabled, you can follow below steps to enable USB debugging on Android phone. We will use an itel mobile phone in this demo. Please note that the exact steps and availability of Demo Mode may vary slightly depending on your device’s manufacturer and Android version. If you can’t find the “Demo mode” or “System UI demo mode” option in Developer Options, you may need to search specifically for your device model and Android version to see if there are any additional steps or if the feature is supported.

Head to Settings > System > Developer options. Touch the ON/OFF toggle to turn it on if not yet. Then scroll down to find System UI demo mode. You will find two options beneath: Enable demo mode and Show demo mode. Touch the ON/OFF toggle next to Enable demo mode to turn it on, then tap on the toggle to activate Show demo mode as well.
