How to Disable App Icon Badges & Unread Counts on Your Galaxy S9  

As informative as they can be, the new app icon badges and unread counts on the Galaxy S9's home screen are a little redundant since Android already has a notification center. If you'd rather not have these little dots overlaid on your home screen icons, there's an easy way to disable and hide them. You can thank Android 8.0 Oreo for these new controls. Lucky for you, your brand-new S9 will have Oreo out of the box, so you won't know a world without it. Those without an S9 will have to update
