I miss the notification LED

[-] [email protected] 12 points 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago)

I don't understand why that one has gone away. Like, the 3mm audio jack made waterproofing difficult and was big. But that doesn't apply to the notification LED, does it?

I really miss that feature because now I have no indicator of a notification, short of the major battery drain of setting the screen to always be on. I remember even customizing the colour so that I could tell when I had important notifications. Now I often have to double tap my phone just to check if I have any notifications. So dumb.

Even the water resistance thing is a lie

Wait wait new phones don't have those anymore?

No they can only fold in half. We still need to do some research to implement notification LED technology.

I haven't had a phone with one since the Galaxy S7, but always on displays have replaced them for notifications at a glance.

The s9 had it, rip in piss notification led.

huh, you are right! I really thought that my phone had it, but after checking it has no notification dot.

Damn, that was useful AF, with personalized notification colors for specific contacts. I guess that now smartbands kinda replaced the dot, which is why I didn't realize after 1 year of using it lmao.
