    Has anybody read anything about a notification light for this round of pixels ?
    I've searched but really haven't turned up anything.

    I know it'll have AOD but I really prefer the light. It's not a deal breaker.
    I really hope the 3 gets a stronger signal than the 2. That was my only complaint.

    I haven't seen anything on the notification light, but of course we don't have anything official from Google yet either. I actually use mine, so I hope they keep it. Don't really see any reason why the wouldn't.

    I thought the notification light was an Android thing. Why WOULDN'T the Pixel have one? I don't even want a phone that doesn't have one. it's so helpful.

    When I had a pixel 2 XL trying it out.
    Like in messages, it would put a blue dot showing you, that you had a message .

    Not all Android phones still use it. Always on display has replaced it on many phones.

    I believe the OP is asking about the pixel 3 not the pixel 2

    Don't know for sure but if it did it would have to be in the notch area which is already crowded.

    Really? My GS8 has both. I think my GS6 does to (not sure about the AOD on the 6). I think it should be standard to have both.

    No notch on the 3, just sayin'. Plenty of room for a tiny light, that's the one I'd get.

    I agree. I think it should be standard too, but every now and then a model creeps through. I don't think the LG G6 had one, for example.

    It's such a small thing but oh so helpful. I never knew how nice that feature was when I was still on IOS.

    Agreed. It's one of those subtles that doesn't seem significant, but can really enhance user experience.

    This. If I get one it'll for sure be the regular 3.
    The light is just one of those things that makes a difference in the overall satisfaction with the phone for me.
    I generally do 4+ hours of talking and 3 or 4 hours of screen on time everyday. I run my business on my phone. It's tons of email and text everyday and talking time with GPS and whatever else. Little things make a big difference whenever your constantly interacting with your phone like I am.

    I get some many notifications that I always have something there. I probably should turn it off

    Some find the light a necessity. I guess if you keep your phone within eye sight it handy. I usually have my phone in my pocket on vibrate and I also have a watch so I don't find it as useful.
