Re: Led Notification Light

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Exactly. A $0.20 Light Emitting Diode was left out because of a high-paid Fool.

 

I couldn't imagine #Samsung made this bad decision. The worst part is I cannot even return Smiley Sad

 

No one is looking into our thoughts. If samung could natively do something to the Notification around camera cutout or we're stuck into this.

 And was it the same people who told you it would release on launch day?

Re: Led Notification Light

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I'm also suffering missing of LED notification light from yesterday once I got my s10...that feature to emit light around front camera should be by default..I don't believe that #Samsung make some survey about removing notification led and most of the customers wanted to remove it...does not make sense, otherwise that was vote of single "big-fished" person...

 

However anyone knows any alternative for now? I'm missing that feature that I'm considerning to send s10 back...and still there is my previous s8 in the drawer.. ;/ I tried some 3rd party app, but it contains so many ads that  I said thank you after a while of usage..some android developers want to make some money on our desperation..

I'm in the exact same boat I thought maybe I couldn't figure the setting to get the LED but apparently it doesn't exist. For a phone that cost as much as it does I don't think I'm keeping it---this broke the camel's back! This is after Samsung has been the WORST customer service I've ever dealt with -_-

Yes it's crazy. I spend 900e and was totally knocked down by this missed feature. My S3 gear watch also got crazy with S10 synchronisation, but it is another topic. But LED notification is IMO "red card" from UX perspective....

 

How the &*&^ you cannot see even while your phone is charged....unbelievable

 

Good that I kept original box so soon I will send it back..I'm more convinced for that action...

Always on Edge (available on playstore) is the only current alternative. I have not tested myself. This is not 100% alternative but only 20%. Just a consolation.

If anyone have a confusion that the camera cutout contain special hardware/seperate LED strip around it, I am 99.99% sure that it does not. It is actual part of the screen. The brightness of the ring adjusts with screen brightness. I have tested this on a pure white background and by adjusting screen brightness. So, it will be different only if samsung creates an api to lighten up and set these pixels an individual brightness.

I tried that app but removed quickly as it contains tons of ads...and it contains hundreds of options and you have to give a lot of permissions, it is not trustful in my opinion. 

 

Currently, I have problem that there is no vibration for all notifications that are coming to my s10  :/

If you don't like the ads, then pay for the app. You guys keep complaining about Samsung saving costs for an LED and yet you are not willing to pay a developer. I had a lengthy email chat with him and helped him to figure out the position of the S10+ cutout to make the lighting work.This was necessary since he has no access to the device in Syria. And for what the app is supposed to do it needs a lot of permissions of course.

Hopefully, Samsung includes an always-on display version of the notification LED, or, better yet, utilizes the ring light around the selfie camera as a "Notification" LED that continuously flashes every few seconds when a missed call, missed text message or missed app notification hasn't been checked.  What others don't understand is that it's a nuisance to walk across a room to your phone constantly checking for anything you missed while your phone is on silent.  I used to have my phone facing forward and upright while on silent mode while at work,   this allowed me to glance over every now and then at my phone to see a blinking LED light indicating that I've missed any of the aforementioned notifications. Now I'm constantly going over to my new S10 , lighting up the screen or tapping it to see if I've missed anything.  This means allot Samsung. Please maybe revise the ring around the selfie camera to flash continuously every few seconds as an indicator of missed notifications ...... please 🙏. And thank you in advance hopefully!
