Anybody encounter notification icon still reflecting on notification bar after reading msg?
Yup happened to me too. For whatsapp and telegram. I think have to go in the app via the notification to clear it. If go in by the app directly, the notification won't clear.

Does Samsung Service Centre still factory reset your phone when you sent in your phone for repair? The last time I requested them not to do factory reset, they could not accede to my request.
yes. they say its their sop coz of privacy.

I think Samsung customers should have a choice to choose to have their phones factory reset or not.

How are we going to copy our photos out if the problem is a spoiled LCD? Surely they cannot factory reset just like that. I think that is data destruction not data protection. Lol.

ikr. its just plain dumb. users can choose whether they want to retain their data or not and i am perfectly fine if they make me sign an indemnity form for my data



My set got this problem last year. Sent for repair. Now this same problem again.
i have the same exact problem too after sending it for repair...and it only happens when i zoomed above 2x.

Think of it this way, if you dont reset and one day your private data on ur phone somehow gets leaked like videos/photos/etc after you sent in for repair then who are you gonna blame?

Blame Samsung, too late by then. Look at all the damage caused by leaks whenever people sent their phones in for repair, seungri scandal, Edison chen scandal. Samsung cant and wont guarantee that their technical staff wont do anything funny with your private data too. And when **** happens, it's already too late to even blame them.

Better to be safe than never.

They can just factory reset just like that. They have testing firmwares designed to wipe the device for hardware testing. Requires little interaction to flash. It even can bypass Google reset protection.

Also to do testing the phone cannot have any sort of screen lock set for them do testing. So if you really want a phone behind closed door away from your hands and eyes with all its content exposed. Samsung rather not deal with that
