    Is there a way to make the Notification Icons on AOD & Lockscreen larger?
    I've searched the settings and the Google for an answer. I assume it's 'no', but I am hoping there is a way, because it's hard to see what they are, especially without glasses.

    You sir, are a good one to investigate, since you have the Pie. Hopefully a change in Android 9.

    Thanks , so the only thing I came up with in display settings that might work is adjusting the zoom in or font size might make the icons bigger but also what u see but still checking

    You can turn off Notifications Icons Only and it'll give you a wider view. That might help see them better.

    Thanks, but even tho I cannot find the setting right now, I have show all info turned on.
    Below are pics of the tiny Notification Icons.
    I mean, c'mon, the screen is huge. Couldn't the icons take up more real estate?

    That might work. It made the notification icon on the lock screen about 20% larger. I can't check the AOD right now because my battery is at 5%. I'll give it a whirl.
    I can reduce the size of the home screen and app drawer icons with Nova Launcher.
    I reduced the font size, but I can't make the keyboard small enough.

    The keyboard might be a scale size setting in the settings of the keyboard

    I use SwiftKey and even on the smallest setting it was a bit too large, but the deal breaker was that every screen swelled. I thought I only had to rescale stuff on the home screen. I didn't think about every app being affected. It was kinda comical how big some things were.
    I really appreciate your suggestions!

    I am trying to enlarge the notification icons on my Note 9 too. It would be nice to be able to tell what they are from across the room.

    Hopefully they can down the road add some adjustments in AOD icons.

    In looking at this, I was using the wife's Note 9 and comparing settings. Then, I realized that she has a banner, on her lock screen, for each notification, instead of just the tiny icons I have at the bottom of the lock screen.
    I tried mimicking her settings, for notifications, theme (her's is default theme) and screen lock. No joy.
    I went thru each menu is phone settings with both Note 9s side by side, looking for differences.
    No joy.
    They are both Verizon branded. We are both on the same Verizon service. The only difference is her's is a 6/128 and mine is an 8/512.
    Screenshots below.

    Here is the screenshot of the wife's lockscreen.
    Apparently, I can attach only one pic to a post, using the AC app.

    BRILLIANT! You are correct. I have Goodlock and she does not.
    How did you figure that out?

    I already had the NOTIFICATIONS on IN LOCK Screen settings.
    I had to turn off LOCKSTAR in GOODLOCK in order to get the notification banner on my lockscreen.

    Now, to decide which way to choose...
    I think I'll try it with LOCKSTAR off and see if I miss any of its features.
    Thanks Mustang!

    Lol...I know Samsung doesn't let that many icons on lock screen by default anymore.
