    I liked the subtle light on my Nexus. It was on the bottom so when it was in my pocket I could just slightly slide the phone up a little out of my pocket and see if it was blinking. This phone has it on the top. I was in a restaurant tonight and it started flashing for an email. The thing was like a bright strobe light in the restaurant. Finally had to flip the phone over on the table.

    Ah, thanks! Still wish there was a way to just make it a little dimmer or more subtle I guess.

    do you have the lightflow app that lets you customize colors? maybe there is a setting where it could be a color that is less obnoxious for you, or a toggle to turn it off easily?
    Anyone out there with lightflow know whether this is possible?

    My notification light doesn't even illuminate. So I cant complain or praise it.

    I like it. I think it looks nice and easier to see if I miss the notification tone when I have an alert.

    Maybe some masking tape?

    Personally, I love my LED. But I can see where, for example, it would be disturbing in a dark room at your bedside when you want to sleep.
    Edit: quick solution... turn the phone upside-down.

    I agree. It would be great if there was a dimmer function for when you needed it.

    I use light flow and only have the led blink when I get text messages. You can also turn all led notifications off in its settings.

    Yes man, although I'm becoming less annoyed by it. The place it really annoyed me in comparison to my Gnex was in a darker restaurant where the phone was sitting on the table. It was like a lighthouse beacon in there. I'm not putting tape over it. I don't want to get rid of it all together - still want the functionality of it, I just want it to be a little less intrusive at times. Hence the idea of a dimmer would be nice.

    Having had multiple Moto phones, a G Nex, and a Rezound....I like the notification light on the Maxx HD. I felt it wasnt bright enough on the G Nex, and it was too small on the Rezound. I liked that it was big on the G Nex, and I liked that it was bright on the Rezound.

    I like my notification light as bright as possible. I think with Light Flow you can use softer, dimmer colors? That may help.

    I like it bright but small. Naked led is better.

    I'm running CyanogenMod and thankfully there's a setting for led colors. I've kept the same colors, but just set much darker. Ahh.....

    No problems with the size or brightness of the light.

    I do find it bright at night. But I just cover it up or turn on airplane mode.
    I should note that my bedroom is super dark and have blackout curtains.
