    AOD is replacing LED? Dumbest idea possible.

    AOD was always meant to do so... Since the S10 line is trying to do away with bezels, anything that cannot be placed under the screen had to go.

    If it is, then it needs a lot of work. I have aod on and it shows a lot of data, but the notification led told me that something important was happening.

    This bezel less nonsense is taking away useful features in favor of something that really isn't very important.

    I mean, it's not like AOD actually shows you more, useful information or anything...šŸ™„

    No, it shows me all information. Discord notices
    Facebook
    PayPal
    Weather
    Twitter
    Samsung Health
    Etc

    Hidden within the 3 icons and +X are specific notifications that might be more important than others.

    Text messages
    Facebook messenger
    Calendar events

    The led let me know if these vip notifications were buried in with the others.

    So you turn on the display and see the notifications? Not as big of a deal as you're making it.

    Then they shouldn't have compressed the notifications on the AOD screen. The led let's me know that I have an important notification that I will probably want to check. The AOD just tells me that I have notifications.

    Since they are releasing the SDK for the camera that means it's possible someone can take the code of flashing edge of the front camera and turn it to a notification light. Who knows. No led notification is a bummer but not a deal breaker to me. If I see a notification on my AOD, no matter what it is, I'll still check it anyway. It was just nice to see a notification a few feet away from the blinking led when I can't see the AOD and not wearing my smart watch.

    The way I look at it led notifications told me a notification was sent to my phone , now was it important or just a email got go in and check it.

    The AOD notifications came in , I know its email or Facebook, phone by the icon then I would see if important enough to open my phone.

    Then you have edge lighting not as good as the other 2 .

    Edge lighting is not a persistent notification and goes away after the notification is received.

    No, the LED has colors. I set them up. If I glanced at my phone and it was blinking blue, I knew it was work related and I should check it out. Green was for my personal emails. If it was blinking purple - it was my wife. If it was blinking red it was my junk account, or non important stuff like Facebook. I love the LED. I can glance at my phone sitting a distance away, or over on a charging cradle, and know if it needs attention by the color of the blinking light. Very useful to me.

    Actually, some apps let you set the color. For ones that don't, I use Light Manager.

    I have it on, but it is a single option and it isn't persistent.

    You also have the rear flash option for notifications. Won't give you the color option (hopefully that'll be better baked into Edge Lighting and not as buggy this time around), but it's something.

    To be fair, the LED, just like the headphone jack, has had its days numbered for a while. Whether we like it or not.

    I love notification lights, but AOD has swayed me. The s10 AOD is beautiful and I'll clearly be able to see if I have a notification. It also seems like different colors show for notifications, which will help a lot. Still prefer the light, but AOD is a decent replacement.

    It depends. As I said many apps do let you set the color in the app notification settings.
