Re: Led Notification Light

JUMP TO SOLUTION

@userpq79AENzXR Already a lot of discussion on this here > https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/pGalaxy-S10/Led-Notification-Light/m-p/466732#M450

 

I was also planning to cancel but I had no option to do so. However, for now I am living with a less functional "Always of Egde" app available on playstore until and IF samsung implements the same.

 

@userPMSs2gzgUA It's a personal choice. But it is a dealbreaker. Samsung might not have imagined how important this is in so many people's life. This tiny little led also influenced my preference over iPhone. For SO MANY people, it is the same I believe. It's a core feature that we use everyday (I would rather say every minute).

Yes I can. I can also live without the ability to access internet as well as not have a camera. Point is its a feature i rely on quite often, a main feature i use.

Exactly. The point is it's not that we cannot live without that tiny little LED. However, living without it is inconvenient.

I too have become very accustomed to the notification LED. With 60 year old eyes I can still see the notification status of the phone from across the room or at night on my bed stand.

Having the led flash until you read the message is a very useful feature.

AOD is not a replacement for this. I have also never liked AOD and always turn it off.

Wanting to upgrade my S7 Edge I waited for the Pixel 3 then decided to wait for the S10+. I was very disappointed to find out that they both have done away with the led or a suitable alternative.

I will wait a bit to see if Samsung comes up with an update. Not interested in using 3rd party apps. 

When the time comes if the update is not ready I will get an S9+ instead.

 

I emailed Samsung, this is their reply. Would be nice if they really understood better the reason for eliminating the led.  It has nothing to do with Pie or the user interface at all!

I would like to inform you that the feature of the LED notification was been removed from the S10+ due to the pie update and a new feature called Edge Lightening was been included in the phone. The Edge feature is has a better user interface as compared to the LED Notification.

I have already requested return of my s10 and gonna back to s8.....my adventure ends with s10, too.

 

Edge feature is has a better user interface as compared to the LED Notification.


That was silly answer...this "better UI" doesn't work with gmail, hangouts,  whatsapp, messenger, Skype, charging phone...should I mentioned more?? If it is working for some app then you will have edge lighting only once, there is no repetition mechanism like with old Led notification light ..They should ensure that feature is working  before claiming that is super duper..

@userWmCfcCyRUL So even the "replacement" Edge Feature does not work with Messenger or Gmail??  Why? It doesn't support them? It does not work properly? What exactly do you mean?

 

PS: Even if it works it's a bad replacement of the LED notification method as LED was constantly lighting until you removed the notification and this is my preferred method and not just appear once.

Yes edge lighting not working with my s10+ anyway, only  message work, the rest of them never work with screen off, Samsung support is a joke, they even get in my phone and do all the setting still not working, I am very disappointed and missing led notification, never buy Samsung again.

@winedrop As someone who went from the S9+ to the S10+ , other than the lack of notification led, what major differences have you noted?

I am asking from my point of view looking to upgrade from the S7 Edge to the S9+ wanting to know what I will be sacrificing (not goint to the S10+) other than faster processor and a slightly better camera. I am very happy with the S7 Edge camera so know that I will be blown away by the camera in the S9+.
