    what's the sense of providing the notification dot feature if its gone by clearing the recents from notification bar. It should display the dot for unread messages of something until it's not seen or opened. Like for whatsapp, Instagram etc.

    He is not saying that he dislike this feature. He is pointing out the flaw in the usability of it.
    Having the dot does not make any difference when you are clearing the notifications and that make the dots go away.

    I second that. What's the point of notification dots if it disappears everytime you clear your notification tray.

    I like it just the way it is. Having to clear the notification from the bar and the app the sounds like a pita to me.

    When will people stop complaining to OEM for implementing something the way Google did? I agree that it's pretty useless, but that's on Google.
    Though there are some case that it's useful for me:
    I use Nova launcher and for the sake of having a simplistic pages, I opt to turn off/hide the status bar. The notification dots is the only thing that remind me that I have notification at a glance because of that.
