It seems Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S9+ is suffering from a new bug that blocks notifications for missed calls.
Multiple users have reported that they do not get missed call notification on the status bar, notification panel and on always on display. This means users need to manually go to call log to see the missed calls.
A report from PiunikaWeb indicates the issue has been majorly spotted with European handsets. Further, the problem persist for the Plus model only. There are signs that the bug was introduced by the March 2018 security update.
“On my dual SIM s9+ I seem to be experiencing a weird bug with missed call notifications. Quite often no notification are shown for not answered calls. I only realize that there was a missed call when I open the phone app. I was not able to identify any clear pattern that leads to a bug but close to 50% of missed calls on my device do not result in a notification in the status bar and the on the always on display,” said one user.
The brand is aware of the situation and it is looking for a fix, but other information is available at the moment. “I’ve escalated it to our software guys but any software log files you folks can send them will help them narrow down exactly what’s going on and fix it quicker,” the moderator explained.
Previously, it was noted that battery performance of the Galaxy S9 with Exynos processor is actually worse than its predecessor.
According to a report by AnandTech, the battery on the Galaxy S9 lasted three hours less than the Samsung Galaxy S8 that comes with Exynos 8895 chipset. The publication further notes that the battery life on the Galaxy S9 is actually worse than the Apple iPhone 6s, LG V30, Apple iPhone 7, Google Pixel XL, Galaxy S7 with Exynos 8890 processor and more.
