Re: S10/S10+ Led Notification Light Missing

JUMP TO SOLUTION

@Goodole sorry to hear you're going to Apple over the lack of a dedicated notification LED indicator. I'm pretty sure Apple got rid of their notification LED as well though, so....

There are many apps that simulate this feature on the S10 that work splendidly. Holey Light is a great app made by a respected member  of XDA forums, Chainfire. Another is the Edge Lighting+ from Samsung; there is a camera cutout option for the edge lighting.

There is still no LED notification light. I miss text & other notifications ALL. THE. TIME. because my phone sits there dark, not letting me know that I didn't see it at the exact moment it arrived. Whomever took away the LED light (or hasn't gotten this supposed new light to work) is ruining the phone.  I won't buy another Samsung if there is no LED light.

Remove the tiny notification light and put a huge cutout in the screen for a camera lens that most don't care about? Previous camera was fine. Don't see the need for a super camera. What's the point of infinity screen when most people put a case on phone? How about eliminating the useless Bixby button if you need to come up with something for your engineers to do? The camera cutout is ugly, unecessary and unwanted. The notification light is a necessary, popular and useful feature. Went to upgrade my s8+, told about missing notification light, did not upgrade. I hope Samsung rethinks this boondoggle on S11. Maybe Samsung should test design changes with real users.

It's not about "super camera", it's about having a much larger screen.

Case or no case, there is still simply more screen. I think more people prefer more screen vs an LED light. Phones sell well, so it appears to be the case.

They did. Obviously they can't do it on S10 series phones, but Note 10 devices don't have it.

The camera cutout is only a stepping stone on the way to phones that are all screen. There will be no room for LED lights, home buttons, speakers, fingerprint scanners and even cameras very soon. This is what people ask for when they vote with their wallets and companies are happy to accommodate to stay in the game.

@user02mOiKj2Yj The part that gets me about "it's all about screen size" I have an S10 on my computer desk in front of me and the notification LED could have been put right next to the camera or on the left side. If you look at the camera on any page you may be on it's always there. The screen does not use that part of the face of the phone. You are absolutely right about people buying. I bought the S10e not even thinking they would remove the LED. but unfortunately I couldn't take it back in time becasue of an operation had me laid up for two month. So I bnought an S9 until I can get to moving around a little better. I just talked to me son last night and he buys unlocked phones like I do. He told me it's his last Samsung phone and product. He's tired of having junk (bloatware) forced on him as well. So it's him, his wife two children and one grandaughhter plus me that will not be buying any Samsung phones or any other Samsung product. As long as anyone on this forum has any problem with what I've mentioned then STOP buying Samsung. I've been trying to sell this stupid thing and no luck yet, so that tells me something.

This is NOT solved then! 

Can we get this unmarked as "solved?"

Well it will never "really" be solved as there is no physical hardware for it, maybe it's time to move on?

Nearly a year later and it still seems like we are without an official notification led system. That's really not cool.

After almost a year, I think they did what they felt like they had to do by adding few new options to the edge lighting. I know this is not what most of us expected, but that's their solution. Nothing else is going to happen there. They've moved on and so should we. I have.

Geno71, I agree. it's nothing but a road tro extreme frustration and unsettlement. I however do beleive Samsung and all other phone manufacturers could have built into the phone to use the display other menas to accomplish the task at hand.

 

Stay safe
