    I have had the 7 PRO for 4 months now, and still no notifications, from any apps, besides Textra (SMS). Is there any hope that this will be fixed in the upcoming update? Or ever? A lot of people complain about this, and I understand that this has not worked properly for years. Screen doesn't turn on, no horizon light, no sound, NOTHING!! I do not understand why this keeps getting ignored. It is a basic feature that should just work right out of the box, and without going through a weird maze of settings.

    A phone without notifications is nothing more than a brick, and in my case, a $900 brick. It's pointless!!

    I have been shouting out about this for 4 months now, standing on my wooden box in the town square, looking like a fool. No one, especially OP, seem to care. All people care about is the camera, dark themes, the color of the notification panel, or game play. While these features may be important to some users, they are secondary to notifications.

    It's not a camera, and it's not a gaming console. IT'S A PHONE!!

    Have you by any chance switched off animations in Developer Options

    No, I have made no changes in developer mode. But again, as I said, notifications is a basic feature that should work from the get go. I get notifications from one app, Textra SMS, but not from any other apps, gmail, Outlook etc.... If switching off animations affects notifications, then it should affect notifications from my text app as well. Something is wrong with OxygenOS, and it annoys me that it is not getting any attention from OP.

    So, I got the android 10 update, (7 pro). Still no notifications and no horizon light. I get notifications from Textra SMS, but not from any other apps. Everything that has anything to do with notifications is on. Does anyone else have this issue? Is there some weird hidden setting I have or haven't set?
