On the LG smartphone, notification points (app icon indicator) with numbers are displayed by default. This means that a small badge with the number of notifications is displayed in the upper right corner above the respective app icon. Alternatively, the number can also be deactivated, whereby an "N" is displayed instead of the number.

If this function is not desired on the LG device, the notification points can be completely disabled in the settings.
