    Every SMS (Messenger and Phone text) I get results in my picked notification sound and some stupid lights. The lights are same as the flashlight. I don't need that visual notice. Sound and vibration are enough. I've looked around and just can't find a way to turn off the lights. I like the LG V20 a lot but these lights are not necessary.

    Looks like the "hearing" accessibility setting may have been turned on.

    To fix, go into settings > accessibility > Hearing > Flash Alerts - and turn it off.

    Thanks. That worked. I was worried that some cop would pull me over for getting a text when the flash occurs at night.

    One thing I've noticed is that the LED doesn't light up for me at all when I get notifications. I'm used to my LG G4 where it would light up either blue, green, or red depending on what the situation was. How did you get yours to light up in the first place?

    The same way I showed the OP how to turn it off.

    I turned it on and nothing happened. Also I guess that means that LED blinking for notifications is no longer enabled by default?

    Edit: I did that but that just made my camera flash whenever I got a notification. That was not what I was referring to. I was talking about the light on the top front that would blink whenever you get a notification and be red when the phone is charging.

    The V20 does not have a notification led. It uses the second screen. I do wish it did have the led as you can see what kind of notification from a distance!

    I kinda miss having an LED notification but the second always on display is far superior.

    I am having the same problem with an 8" Lenovo tablet I have just acquired (Lenovo tab 4 8), running android 7.1.1, but that solution doesn't seem to work for me. At the top right corner of the screen there is a tiny flashing green led light that indicates when I have notifications; but it is very annoying because there will always be some notifications, so it is constantly flashing, and I haven't been able to find a way of turning it off. I find no "hearing" option in the settings > accessibility menu to do as you have suggested. Is there any other solution for that problem?

    Boy I couldn't disagree more. Once you learn the colors you can tell if you have work email or a sms from your girlfriend across the room! The second screen is way too dim unless the phone is right in your hand and even then the icon for a gmail or email or sms is the same for everyone. Never know when a silent notification is important or spam. I really miss led notifications

    Of course I am referring to multicolor led like Samsung has not single color like HTC or Lenovo
