Dear Forum,

after scanning the x60 and x70 threads about notification issues I'm still struggling with missing notifications and badges for certain apps [in this case Signal and Threema]. What I did so far:

- uninstall com.vivo.pem via ADB App Control
- set notification settings correctly for the apps: (Allow notification, allow smart notification, Floating notifications on (Threema, Signal), Lock screen notifications on (Threema, Signal), display notification details on lock screen, Chats: priority display) // (Home Screen icon badges only for Whatsapp available for some reason)
- set single permission settings for the apps: autostart on, startup on, floating window on, desktop shotcuts on, display on lock screen on, background pop-ups on, Remove permissions and free up space off
- set display settings: show on the off-screen on, show on the lock screen on, show on the home screen on, show in the status bar on, notification method: original icon
- set battery settings correctly: Boost mode, saving mode off, high background power usage on, always on display on, optimize battery life off, auto enable battery saver off

[Phone settings: Drawer style, dark mode, Android Style control center, Vivo Origin System Launcher]

Whatsapp is working: Home Screen notifications, badges, also lock screen notifications - Threema and Signal are not working, driving me a bit crazy. "Sometimes" there is a notification sound, sometimes not. Starring at the lock screen with turned on blue ambilight, it sometimes appears, sometimes not. So my questions:

1) Is there anyone who has experience with Signal and Threema notifications on a Vivo device and could share his/her solution?
2) Should I uninstall also com.vivo.abe and com.iqoo.powersaving?
3) There are no badges for almost all third party apps (Whatsapp badges are working) - is there a way to change it, to get also badges for Signal, Threema, Telegram and so on? (Change Launcher?)

I appreciate your help!

I turned dark mode off, Threema notifications in the status bar are working like 70% now, sometimes they don't - that's so weird.

Is there a solutions for getting badges? Maybe changing the launcher?

Same problem with Google's Messages app, so can't see when I receive a SMS.
I hope they will fix this ASAP.
1) Set settings of the app like in 1st message
2) Set settings of battery/energy usage like in 1st message
3) Switch to bright/light-mode
4) restart phone


-> after doing that, almost 100% of all Threema message are shown as notification. Still struggling with AquaMail, but this will be fixed within next days.

Now at the moment everything seems to work even in dark mode, and even with AquaMail, I just followed this instruction:
https://www.chinahandys.net/vivo-china-version-einrichten/ (German)
No badges in AquaMail but in WhatsApp they work, but I dont need that.

I knew that tutorial before. For me the notifications in status bar and home screen for Threema and Signal did not work having dark mode turned on. Switching to the brigth/light mode the notifications work perfectly.

Considering the badges - I get used to it not having badges for messaging apps.

Just for the readers, you can turn on badges on the home screen for the following apps (Origin OS, Dim9000):
- Designs
- Settings
- iMusic
- iManager
- Kuaishou
- Messages
- Notes
- Recorder
- Telephone
- Clock
- V-Appstore
- Vivo
- Vivo.com
- VivoCloud
- Whatsapp

Thanks a lot for your suggestions, but no way to make the Telegram notifactions work...any suggestion? I don't have a sim inside the phone for the moment, but I don't think this is the problem

1) set settings like in post 1
2) unmute chat in telegram (telegram itself)
3) switch into boost mode (battery settings)
4) allow background activity (battery settings)
5) turn off dark mode

6) restart phone

-> telegram is working perfectly for me with settings from post 1 and dark mode turned off. Always restart your phone to get things work. To be honest, this origin os behaves sometimes really strange :/ hope you get it work.

You are right about origin os...thanks again, I didn't put previously in boost mode and I only disabled com.vivo.pem...do you think that disabling is not enough?

To be honest, I do not know. While getting it working step by step I was very impatient at some point, so I can not tell you which setting is really needed to get it working - please feel free to test it step by step to figure out which settings are really needed. I will post my settings again a bit more structured.

The only thing I can tell you: I have uninstalled neither com.vivo.abe nor com.iqoo.powersaving, but with the settings below, uninstall of com.vivo.pem and a phone restart my notifications are working perfectly.

Tested and successfully working with Signal, Telegram, Threema, Whatsapp (Vivo X80 Pro, Origin OS, Dim 9000):
1) uninstall com.vivo.pem via ADB App Control

2) set notification settings correctly for the certain app (Settings/Notifications/App notifications/APP):
2a) allow notification
2b) allow smart notification
2c) floating notifications on
2d) Lock screen notifications on
2e) display notification details on lock screen on
2f) Chats: priority display (if there are chats listed, choose priority display)

3) set single permission settings for the certain app (long press App/App Info/App Permission/Settings Single Permission):
3a) autostart on
3b) startup on
3c) floating window on
3d) desktop shotcuts on
3e) display on lock screen on
3f) background pop-ups on

4) set single permission settings for the certain app (long press App/App Info/App Permission):
4a) permissions and free up space off

5) set display settings (Settings/Notifications/Display settings):
5a) show on the off-screen on
5b) show on the lock screen on
5c) show on the home screen on
5d) show in the status bar on
5e) notification method: original icon

6) set battery settings correctly (Settings/Battery):
6a) Boost mode on
6b) saving mode off

7) set battery settings correctly (Settings/Battery/More settings):
7a) always on display on
7b) optimize battery life off
7c) auto enable battery saver off

8) set battery settings for App correctly (Settings/Battery/background power consumption/App):
8a) high background power usage on

Just a guess - Vivo Account?

Are you logged in into your Vivo Account? If not, created one on their website and log in - please share if this is working...

What about your battery settings? Maybe before changing the display settings you need to do step 7) and 8) - but I've no clue why your display settings are grayed out. Have you deleted certain systemapps with ADB?

If you find the solution, just share it here.

I tried several things now. Going back some steps and checking again ... always stays grayed out.
I deleted only vivo.pem and some Bloatware. Nothing what has to do with display settings ...

So at the moment I dont know what to do next, but with rest of settings all notifications working for me. Only lockscreen notifications dont show up as well as tiktok notification. But thats more or less OK for me.

If I find out how to change Display notification settings I will share here, for sure.

thank for the hint,I think bug in darkmode is the root cause,I can get the notification sound but no visual in notification center, clearmode is ok!
I have reported this system level bug to the PM of iQOO(subsidiary of vivo, they share the same OS) via weibo, hope they can fix it in the later release!

Good point! If I activate them, I am able to change Display notification settings.

But is it recommendable to have them activated? I thought its kind of too chinese stuff, for being usefull here in europe.
greeting from China!

    Well... There´s nothing else to be done... I just decided to sell and buy another device. IQOO/VIVO NEVER AGAIN!!! My worst nightmmare!
    Your rage will not help anyone. Buy a phone (Samsung, Apple or old Nokia bone) which suits your needs before searching for experiments - I'm very sure that you knew about the issues before buying - especially about the notification and energy saving challenge as well as the google assistant problem. If not, then it's your own fault.

    All main issues I had so far with my Vivo x80 pro have been solved by patience, thinking and trying, others issues have been solved by Vivo's update policy and little issues I do not care too much. This forum is the best place to share experiences, support and tips. I try my best to share my experiences and supportive attitude here in this forum even though I'm also a new member since this year.

    Your comment is really not helpful for anyone. Maybe you will be more welcomed in a different subthread: "IQOO 7".
