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. On itel mobile phone, you can follow these steps to enable/disable demo mode.

Screen capture & Demo mode
Enable Demo Mode allows you to take screenshots and record screen videos with clean status bar. App developers can also change the appearance of the status bar using adb demo mode commands. Or you can use Show Demo Mode to hide notifications and display a preset status bar. However, if you only need a couple of screenshots, you can also choose to take screenshots on itel phone, then crop or trim the status bar using the stock Gallery app or Google Photos app. Both of them come with the image editing tool and are pre-installed on itel mobile phones. Other than that, these apps also allow users to draw over the images using a brush tool, another way we can hide out unwanted icons or information from our screenshots or photos.
