    Default LED Indicator dimmer when charging after update

    Probably not a bad thing, after the 4.3 update the notification LED is not as bright when charging, but bright when flashing for notifications. Before I could see it on the ceiling at night. Anyone else notice the change?

    I'm going to take a guess and say HTC did this because they felt the light was too bright initially. Most likely so you can easily spot the difference between a message blink or charge light at quick glance.

    (I know it blinks for messages but I mean a real quick glance lol)

    Or maybe it was just too bright, because if you could see it projected on the ceiling that's pretty bright. May have been keeping people up at night. I never noticed mine being that bright, but with the tri-colored case it sits in a perforated mesh of holes that resembles the speaker grill and it's always a little hard to see at any kind of angle.

    Works for me, if I wake in the middle of the night I would have to cover the green LED it was so bright!

    I agree that this is a good thing. Had to cover mine at night while charging previously, was way to bright.

    Agreed, I noticed it too. With a Double-Dip case (which makes it hard to see anyways) I actually thought that it was a bug and wasn't on while charging at all. But I noticed it again this morning.

    Definitely not shining on my ceiling at night anymore.

    Drained faster, I'm in the process of running it down to 20 percent. I'll do that 2x, that's what helped originally

    I've noticed that when it got to 60 percent, which I rarely let it get to, (not good), the drain is very slow.

    It's leveling out. It'll end up about the same as before...

    Interestingly enough mine seems a bit worse. Had to charge before evening yesterday because for the first time it didn't go all day. I have now installed a battery monitor app which helps me optimize and also kill apps that I'm not using but stay on in the background so I'll be keeping an eye on it, kinda disappointing tho if this is the way its going to be. I love the ONE tho and shall adapt.

    This is good. The LED was way too bright in dark places. It was even uncomfortable to look at the phone.

    Yes, it is dimmer now.

    While the dimmer LED is generally better, this means no more shadow puppets on my ceiling.

    Yeah I didn't give it a second thought when I joined this thread, but now a few weeks in it's annoying. During the day I can't tell if it's charging, in the case in the living room I can't tell it's charging. I always have to touch it to see if it's charging. Wish it either worked like the screen dimmer or gave the option.

    I have found its more the angle that I look at it now that its dimmer. Its dim enough so that I have to sit up in bed and get to an angle where I can see the light coming out from under its housing.

    I think they made it dimmer because some dude was in his car with the phone being charged and when the LED faced toward the sky, Air Force One happened to be flying over and within minutes the guy's car was surrounded by the Feds.

    I meant to "Like" your post legaldeejay, not "Thank" you. But, thanks for the chuckle.

    Re: the LED indicator, it is recessed in the speaker grille, and now it is not as easy to see when charging. But it was too darn bright before. Can't you sleepyheads just feel for the connected cable?

    I am dissappointed that the notifications still don't flash while charging. I could be mistaken, but I think it flashed on my old Incredible.

    Yeah it's all about the angle, in a low light area, but even in bright light it's almost impossible. And yes 67GTV I could feel for the cable but between the kids and the wife my cable is sensitive and occasionally needs a nudge to get it to charge. So while I'm feeling I'll also angle. LOL.

    This may help you out if you are rooted.

    Look in /system/customize/ACC/default.xml or whatever your CID's xml file is:

    <item type="integer" name="NMS_feature_led_flash_timeout">5</item> - change the 5 to 0 and you should get no led timeout.

    <item type="boolean" name="NMS_feature_flashlight_during_charging">false</item> - change from false to true and the led will blink for a notification even if it's charging.
