Hi all, I thought I would chime back in to say I have solved the issue for myself, I realised that I only wasn't getting vibration/sound notifications when I received an image as part of the message. When I googled this I found out buried in the notification settings there is an option to 'enable silent notifications'. I disabled this and it is working completely fine now. Setting can be found in phone settings > notifications > whatsapp > Silent notifications (turn off)

I've just got an S10 and I must say I absolutely adore the phone - it is perfect for me! That said, I'm struggling with an extremely frustrating issue - randomly (probably 75% of the time), if I get a WhatsApp message, my phone won't vibrate (or play the notification sound, if my phone is on loud). I have the always-on screen enabled and I can tell I have a new message because the icon is on the screen, however my phone usually lives in my pocket so I end up missing 75% of messages because WhatsApp won't vibrate the phone randomly. All the notification settings look fine, and I think it works normally for around an hour or so after a phone reboot, then it starts randomly dropping notifications again. No other apps have this issue, everything else conforms to the alert settings I have. This is my main messaging app and this issue is ruining the experience for me. Has anyone had similar issues, or know of any fixes? Thanks!
