So I noticed something on Samsung Galaxy phones (with Oreo Version 8 and maybe also the Pie version 9).
So imagine the following scenarios:
Scenario 1 –
1a - You have 5 unread messages on whatsapp (so a 5 on the top right corner of the app icon);
1b - You open the app;
1c – You don’t read any messages;
1d - When closing the app the 5 disappears making it impossible to know that you have unread messages unless you open the app;
Scenario 2 –
2a - You have 5 unread messages on whatsapp (so a 5 on the top right corner of the app icon);
2b – From the lock screen you dismiss the whatsapp notification;
2c – When returning to the phone menu you no longer see the 5 and can only see you have unread messages by entering the app;
So my question:
Does this also happen with Huawei phones?

When you dismiss from lock screen these badge notifications will also reset, but won't affect unread status.
I hope this helps.
