Android Status Bar

I think "status bar" may be a misnomer and it's referring to the three (or 
two on Android 10) buttons that are always available at the bottom of the 
screen. Those are the Back, Home, and (sometimes) the Recents buttons. 
Virtually all Android devices use these "soft buttons" now.

I could be wrong but I've never seen those buttons at the top of the screen 
in the status bar area.
