See the attached screenshot from an Android 8.1.0 phone
I tried changing from display.setStatusBar(display.DefaultStatusBar) to display.setStatusBar(display.DarkStatusBar) to no avail.
The background color is the same as the "navbar", but obviously the OS doesn't know it's anything more than a rect in a displaygroup.
So it's very curious, since I set display.setDefault("background",0).
Edit: I did draw behind the statusbar. Since I didn't request a transparent statusbar, I thought this was safe.
So what remains is a side note that the Corona Simulator doesn't display a statusbar at all if an Android model is chosen, and if an Iphone model is chosen to preview with, Dark and Default statusbars don't show light statusbar text against the new black background.
