Hi @Johnmacca


To be honest I have not noticed this and will try my s8. 

It kind of negates the feature of Sound / Mute Silent Mode if sounds still come through. 

I know a person can change the preferences for their apps but it should just be a case of toggling silent on. 

Are you using Touvhwizz ie no launcher such as Nova prime. 

Also try putting your phone in Safe Mode which turns Off all your downloaded apps and leaves the stock core ones working which can then highlight if it's a rogue app causing this.



Current Phone ~

Samsung Note 9 Model: SM-N960 Dual Hybrid 512Gb_ Samsung One Ui / Pie.

Samsung Gear s3 Frontier Watch
Samsung Galaxy Tab A {2016}SM-T580

Nope using stock touch wiz will try your other suggestion now.... thanks

I'm getting same issue but also random vibrate notifications but no notification.


To boot my Google Home devices aren't being detected by my phone consistently now. 


I've got the S8 and changing launcher doesn't change the issue for me.


I need to do a fac wipe and see if it keeps happening.

I have the same issue!

It's extremely annoying to have the notifications on full blast the whole time...
