    Hi everyone -

    I have been having an incredibly hard time finding this out. I have read that the Galaxy S6 has the traditional notification alert LED light on the front. However, I am trying to find out if it supports ambient display (or something similar) as well for alert notifications?

    Also, if it does support ambient display, is it possible to set it up to continue to "pulse" ("breathe") the alerts indefinitely until the alert is cleared, or does it only display for X minutes before it stops like some other recent phones?

    Thanks for any info!

    You can use the app Light Flow to change the LED colors, speed, and others for different apps

    The screen is AMOLED like the Moto X, so it should support active notifications if there is an app that will do it. There are apps out there that do it on any type of screen, but you only get the battery savings if you have AMOLED and keep all the other pixels off.

    I have been using Dynamic Notifications since it came out and can say its pretty great. I don't even use the LED notification light on my phone.

    I am really confused. I thought that Android 5.0 made active/ambient notifications part of the operating system and as long as the phone had an AMOLED screen, the operating system controlled it? So does this mean that Samsung disabled the Android 5.0 support for this feature, and you need a 3rd party app to enable it?

    If I downloaded one of these 3rd party apps and set it to alert me all the time for alerts (just where a small part of the screen lights up and the rest stays unlit), would my battery life still be OK?

    Correct, Dynamic Notifications will just have a black screen with the notification icon. It also has a breath feature where you can have the notification fade in and out. Mine is set to 15 seconds, so every 15 seconds the notification will fade in and out.
