    Why would u put it there? I came from a bb and when I'm at work my phone is silenced. I could see that led from any angle.

    Yup, it's garbage. Almost as ridiculous as the kickstand opening the wrong direction with regards to the charging port. Lots of dumb design decisions on this thing. Still and awesome phone tho.

    I agree I wish the LED were more prominent, larger and had multiple colors for different notifications. I cannot understand why none of the manufacturers seem to be able to deliver this simple request.

    It's very hard to see I could see the notification light on my DX from across the room. Now I have to get all the way up on the phone to see it.

    Yeah coming from a blackberry, not having a functional LED sucks. I miss so many messages now if I don't hear my phone vibrate.

    Like the Thunderbolt the Evo's led is under the speaker grill too.
    I just keep my phone in landscape position with the kick stand deployed.

    I can see if I have a message from across he room no problem.

    I wish they could have put it under the whole grill. That would have looked great.

    I like the LED indicator. Reminds me of Knightrider.

    the LED behind the grill doesn't bother me but the kickstand annoys the crap out of me... I can't belive no one said anything doing product testing phase...

    What's wrong with your kickstand?

    It opens the same direction as the charging port...hence you can't use the stand and the charger at the same time in landscape orientation.

    The LED is worthless. They may as well have just skipped it.

    The other thing that is annoying is that once the light is amber for charging and a notification comes in, you won't see the notification light at all. The DX showed it, it would flash the notification light once a message was received.

    I don't mind it at all. It is much smaller than many notification lights. I imagine the reason they didn't put a BIG HUGE LED LIGHT on the phone might have had to do with power consumption

    Most phones have a light you can actually see. If they were so worried about power consumption they should have included a battery > 1400 like the 1600 I just ordered that fits in the same size compartment. The light is there so you don't have to turn on the phone over and over to check to see if you have messages when you have to have the sound off. I'm guessing turning the screen on and off all day long uses more power than a small flashing light.

    No one said anything about a huge led. If all they did was put the same led so it sits flush with the surface of the outer shell, you could see it without having to turn it at an angle where you have to look behind the earpiece grill.
