I bought Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro SM-A9100 with latest official Marshmallow firmware based on Android 6.0.1, but I've encountered that stock alarm clock makes some annoying behaviour - the persistent alarm icon on right top corner.
I've always used third party alarm app - Alarm Clock Xtreme Pro with no problem, and It also has the icon, but on left top corner.
I've no enabled alarms in stock app but icon still persists (see attached screenshots).
Maybe you have any ideas how to disable it, I'm literally gave up trying : (

I have just tried the Alarm Clock Xtreme App.

The icon is initiated by the Alarm Clock Xtreme App, not the stock Alarm app though their icons look similar.

How to proof?

When you click the top notification bar, you will see the Alarm Clock Xtreme App. When you remove the alarm in Alarm Clock Xtreme App, the Alarm icon will disappear immediately.
