In reading and web browsing, they really do take up a lot of screen space, especially when you add things like tabs, the status bar, etc. With the release of Android 4.4 "Kit Kat", Google attempted to remedy this issue with the release of "Immersive Mode" for Android. What this mode does is hide all elements from your screen, EXCEPT for your content. This means a lot more room to read, game, watch videos, etc. With a downward swipe of your finger, you can make your buttons and status bar reappear temporarily while you're in your app. The problem is that this mode has to be "activated" by the app developer, and even Google themselves have not implemented it in all of their apps. To this day, the Chrome web browser (pictured above in standard mode and in the main picture (immersive mode) for this article), still does not have immersive mode turned on for some mysterious reason. Neither do Google music, Hangouts (unless viewing a picture), Google+, Gmail, Google Voice (which is WAY overdue for a overhaul), etc.
