    Hi all....just got a new Samsung GS5, my last one was running a much older version of andriod. My question is this.....led notifications don't work when the screen is ON....this is very annoying as I miss messages and kik messages if I'm playing a game or using an app that is full screen....is there any way to get the led notifications to work while the screen is ON? thanks

    That's odd... they work on the Note 4, can't see why it would be any different on the S5. Which carrier are you on? Might be a bug with their ROMs. There are no settings (that I know of) that allow you to disable LED notifications at screen-on. At least not system-wide; some apps do have the option to supress notifications only when you're actively using said app.

    I'm on verizon....my phone just updated from 4.4 to 5.0 last night, but I was having the issue with 4.4 as well....led notifications worked just fine on my old phone, but that was a much older version of andriod, like 2.1....

    Just confirmed on a friend's S5 with Lollipop, his work just fine, too. But he's on AT&T. Apparently it worked fine before LP, too.

    did some more research....found several articles that said the no LED notification with the screen on is standard now....are you running a third party app?

    He's not. Maybe different ROM since he's on AT&T?
