    There was a rumor that the selfie camera hole might double as a notification LED. I didn't catch after the announcement if that was the case or not. Anyone confirm if that's true or not? I put a lot of value in being able to just look at the phone and see if the LED is blinking to let me know I need to check it, so that'd be a tough loss.

    It's just like the S10. No notification light of any kind out of the box.

    This is actually incorrect. If you download Samsung good lock application off the galaxy app store it has the notification light option for the camera punch hole.

    It is not incorrect. Out of the box, it has no notification. You have to download additional software.

    Out of the box the always on display shows an icon for the notifications and when battery is full. At a glance.

    Unless it is fundamentally different from the Note 9, then it's not even remotely the same thing

    My note 10+ has the features and in color so at a glance is even easier. I did not get the 9 but the 10+ is a definite improvement on the 8+.

    It might be improved some, but I get so many notifications that an LED notification, or something close to that is better than the AOD

    Okay, to you but my experience is the AOD is better and provides the at a glance notification that was asked about. To each his own.

    How many notifications do you usually have at one time? I sometimes have 20+ notifications and the AOD icons only show a few icons and then +X for the extras. Some notifications are more important than others, but the AOD doesn't let me sort that, whereas a notification light shows me that I have an important notification among the rest, but might also let me customize the colors of the light.

    And the edge light doesn't really count, since it is not a constant notification.

    They were asking specifically about the notification light, not at a glance or AOD. AOD isn't as useful as a light for a lot of people, because you have to look at the screen

    No... YOU are wrong. That's not the same as an LED. The Edge Lighting app by Samsung just lights up the camera hole momentarily when a notification comes in. It doesn't keep flashing continuously like a true LED does until you clear the notification.

    I looked through Goodlock but didn't find an option for that. Can you tell me where to find it in that app? Wanted to try it on my N9 to see how it works.

    Thanks

    It probably wouldn't be there on the version of good lock for the Note 9 because it doesn't have a punch hole camera.

    I get some many notifications that you might as well assume it's on.

    That's what I figured too, but thought I'd ask. After watching some YT vid's about the Good Lock LED notification, it seems this is a non-issue. That's assuming it also works on the Note's. There are also some stand alone apps to make it work.

    Omg...it's an LED, perhaps both "sides" need to settle a bit.... You all use your phones different, that's cool. Neither is right, neither is wrong.

    That said the LED is gone. Adapt to the new format, or don't buy the phone are your only 2 choices.

    I don't discern. I chose what notifications I want based on which apps I want to notify me.

    That's apparently not true. You just have to use Good Lock or other apps to get a notification LED working.

    I don't think it's a constant blink. If it's like the S10 it's just an initial notification

    I'd miss the RGB NLED as well (currently have the Xiaomi MI 5). It's very convenient when I am not right next to the phone, e.g. cooking, cleaning, chatting with friends or colleagues at work. Can instantly judge whether it's important or not. Sounds strange when I try to explain it but in practice it's simple and effective.

    AOD I'm not sure as I have never owned one. Are the notifications visible at a distance?

    Maybe some of the official cases (LED Back Cover, LED Wallet Cover) can display custom notifications. No idea how visible they are though.

    You are correct, at least for the Good Lock fix. But apps like LED Me Know will keep it active.
