    Default LED GS3?

    Was wondering every time I plug my phone in
    The led turns colors so does that mean it can blink for different notifications? I tried using the only two apps I could find but I can't get it to work.

    Thanks guys

    I'm pretty sure the S3 has a multicolor LED. What apps did you try? Try Lightflow. I've been using it for over a year and love it.

    S3 has red, blue and green LEDs. Lightflow is very good, and the free version may well be all you need.

    Red, green and blue can make any colour possible
    Even black and white which arent really colours

    Are so... but it depends. If you're talking light then white is a color, black isn't. If you're talking pigmentation or molecular structure then black is a color and white isn't. I always thought of black as the combination of all colors, white as the absence thereof.

    Opposite bro.
    Black is what our brain "sees" when theres total lack of light of any frequency (a black object is absorbing all the light, reflecting none for our eyes to see, vice versa for a white object, moreso for a mirror type object.
    White is an equal amount of every frequency so if say red, green + blue frequencys are all at equal amplitude ("volume"), your brain will see what we call white :beer:
    Some stuff i just know n i duno why lol

    Yes, but....

    On the S3, the three colors appear to be physically separate LEDs mounted around the translucent spot where the light is displayed. So when you choose a color that requires a mixture of 2 or 3 LEDs, how successful that color is displayed varies a lot. Using Lightflow, for example, white works pretty well, but you can see a bit of the three separate colors around the edges. Pink, though shows up as part pink, part white, and part green. Orange looks pretty good, but has a bit of yellow at the top.Turquoise just looks green. Some of the other blended colors just appear to divide the circle into 2 or 3 different colors.

    It's about the app. Plume has a pink as a choice and my LED might flashes pink with a Twitter notification.
