Physical notification LED is removed from S series. I am not expressing my disappointment here although I expected this as all Galaxy S series have this feature and this is an inevitable part of my everyday life.
There has been some information over the community here that pixels areound the camera cutout will function as notification light. What I am expecting is if that is true, then,
1. When can we expect this feature?
2. Does this feature has risks of Amoled burn-in?
This is not a discussion thread. I am expecting a response only from a Samsung official.
Hi there, at this time the pixels around the camera cutout do not function as a LED notification. We are unable to speculate on the possible release of future features. If this was made into a feature, it would not have the ability to create a burn-in.
Hi me again. AnothrA option is the edge lighting. You can have that light up, and then also set notification reminders. For calls and messages or customer apps. I just finished setting this up, hoping it'll help me as well.
The difference is simple. A notification light of some kind doesn't require taking your phone out and looking at the screen to read a notification in tiny print on the AOD
This is very disappointing. Why take away a feature and not offer a viable alternative? I would hope allowing access to those pixels at least will be a priority so thay third party developers can create apps to utilize it as a notification light.
What is a burn-in? The no notification alert is a non factor until you realize it's not there and there's no way to know if you get a text message unless you are using your phone constantly. No little flashing light? So frustrating to have beautiful phone but feel it's missing a completely obvious function
Well said. We used to have visual AND audio connectivity to our phones status. Now we only have audio... the visual having been taken away!!! ..unless we pick the phone up to see if we've missed any important messages!!! I hope this gets sorted asap as the rest of the phone is excellent.
