    I have been having an infuriating problem with Gmail notifications that existed on my previous Galaxy S7 and is now appearing on my new Galaxy Note 8.

    Essentially, I have many different Gmail labels that I use, and so when I get notifications for different incoming emails they are grouped by those labels. So at times I will have like 10 unread email notifications grouped into perhaps 3 or 4 different label categories. If I swipe left on one that is unimportant to get rid of it, the rest of the unread notifications then sort of re-order themselves seemingly at random like cards being shuffled — sometimes multiple seconds. And then sometimes the one I swiped away just returns for no reason like it won't obey my swipe-away request.

    I have no idea what the issue is and it's hard to Google about for support given the strange, hard-to-explain nature of the problem. But I haven't seen any mention of this anywhere. I thought perhaps it was a malware-related problem on my S7 (it had been happening for months) but my brand new Note 8 does the same thing.

    Has anyone else seen this? Is this an Android/Galaxy issue or something strange related to Gmail labels. It is maddening and makes me want to throw my phone out a window every time. Please help.

    I do understand that this sounds very weird if you haven't experienced it. So here's a video of what's going on. Anybody ever had this problem? I feel like I'm cursed by a ghost.

    Yes, it's very disruptive. I had to disable vibration because otherwise I fear my phone would break. More so, it just takes four times as long to view notifications and assess whether or not I need to do anything.

    Has anyone else had this problem? This cannot be how it is supposed to function.

    I have this issue too and hope you find a solution. I also can't seem to get the notification on the gmail app to work correctly. I like having the red numbered notification with some apps, especially emails, but for some reason not working. I have only had my note 8 a few days but hoping somebody can help.

    @jrcoady,

    I don't believe the Gmail app supports badges. That may have changed, but when I got my Note 8 it did not.

    @everybody else,

    Do you have the Gmail app set to conversation mode? That could be causing the shuffling as it sorts back into the conversation. If you do, try it with conversation mode off and see if that helps. This is just a stab in the dark, but it can't hurt.
