Here we are at September 5th, 2019, and still no Notification LED. Edge lighting notifcations do not work, the silly workaround app is ridiculous and flaky. Last update from SamsungAdam was 3/28, so he's probably jumped ship on this. Sadly this will be my last Samsung Galaxy purchase, and the Q60 TV I bought 2 weeks ago will be my last Samsung ANYTHING purchase. Not impressed with vaporware strategies.
I have just got my new S10 I am very disappointed that there is no notification light to tell me when charging finished charging emails messages what's app facebook etc I dont want to have the sound up when I'm at work and constantly have the phone going off. It was so much easier on the s8 with a small flashing light in the corner. What on earth possessed Samsung to take this away. Rediculous
Any news regarding the notification light? i just got my new S10 but this vital feature is missing, its a great phone but without that notification light, i miss out on important stuff.
So this should not be marked as a solution. Correct?

Interesting, I'm on my tablet and it allowed me to post on this subject or thread. So I said kool, they got the site fixed and I can start asking some questions. NOT, after the above post I went to reply to another and I got the same old error, but it allowed me to edit this reply. So I've come to the conclusion not only does Samsung not care about the consumer merchandise wise, but it spills over to this forum. Shame, I was such a dedicated Samsung user.
"Upgraded" to a S10 Plus from an S7 that I've used for 3 years. Very disappointed with the lack of charging and notification LED indicators... When I look at my phone when it's plugged in, i always wonder if it's charging or even if it's on.
This is such an expensive phone and the LED is such a basic option, it boggles my mind that Samsung would purposely exclude it.
I fixed the problem. I sold the phone and went back to my S9 unitl I can get some surgeries out of the way and then Back to iPhone or another phone that is not that stupid to take away a most relied on little LED.
@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.
