I got this phone due to the fact samsung 7 and others disabled custom tones on messaging. This phone supports it. Thats a feature I like and want. However, in all the years I owned a cell phone, I never came accross where the app didnt have a display of a message recived, Like in phone calls, VM, texts. The app icon would show something letting you see at a glance theses a message. I dont want to use the pull down menu. hard to read. i thought that was just a default item on all phones. I have owned several types. Allways had it. So why, doesnt this phone have it? I wont buy samsung anymore due to that. I hate to think I have to go shopping again for a phone that supports what I always considerd a default item.

Do you have Moto Display turned On, so you can see new Notifications on the lock screen?
Alos, for apps themselves are you referring to the old Badge Count number that would let you know the count of new items? If so, Google removed that with Android Oreo and added the green Notification Dots instead. Do you have Notification Dots turned On?

I'm not 100 % sure what you are asking or describing. But it sounds like something that is not part of stock Android. maybe it was a Samsung specific type of skin, or functionality. Phones like Samsung run a heavily skinned version of Android, no where close to stock Android. Our phones run a very clean, almost stock Android OS.

I answered your question. Do I have the green dot on. I said " yes I do" .When you say we run a very clean Android OS, then why is there such a magor battery issue shutting down at 61% ? Its not the apps.
I'm just trying to help. I didn't understand your response, or the initial question / post. I'm just trying to help.
I don't know why your phone is shutting off like that. But all phones have a few defects in the mix. That's why there is a warranty. Why did a friend of mine have to return a one month old Pixel 3? I don't know, it just failed & had a defect. But he has a warranty and is getting a replacement phone.

Hopefully your phone is still within warranty and you can get a replacement.
For the BotiNotifica Dots, long press any open space on a Home screen and then select Settings. These are your Launcher Settings. Turn Notification Dots to On. Then make sure that you have your lockscreen set to show some Notification content. There are choices like All, etc.
