AlmightyMokona, I would be just as puzzled with the various malfunctions with my phone after the Oreo update. It's critical we get your device's functionality back to what it was. To start, the only badging with Oreo is a dot that is displayed on the application icons. There is no numerical badging anymore. This is working as designed. I understand that it is not showing up from time to time, but is this what you are referring to as erroneous? If not, please provide me more details. Moreover, you can utilize the Repair Assistant to help assist in repairing the software on your Samsung device using your computer.
