I finally got the phone, and just noticed it does not have an LED light when charging, looks like that option can only be attained if rooted ??

My apologies. I rarely look at my phone when it is charging as I only charge before going to bed for the most part. I have found that if I turn the lock screen on, however, that it does say "charging" when plugged in. You are correct that the only way to have an LED light show when charging is by rooting the phone. Quite honestly, I would need more reason than a charging light to root the phone though... I do agree with you, though, that there should be some sort of indicator. It just never bothered me before. Good luck!

Well you assume it is charging, but there is no LED indicator telling you it is charged, nor is there one telling you the phone is fully charged without unlocking the phone and checking. maybe I am spoiled with HTC and Samsung, just thought it was a basic thing, no biggie, i will deal with it.

I get where you are coming from. Maybe there is some sort of app that gives you a notification when done charging???

You're right. There is no LED charging indicator. Coming from Samsung it took some getting used to. In fact, there is a green LED under the earpiece but without root you'll likely never see it - which is good since if it comes on it means your battery is very nearly dead.

I didn't even know other phones had LED lights to show when charging. Always been used to hitting the power button to check the lock screen, even on dumb phones years ago I don't recall a charging light on anything I had. Could just be I'm forgetting though.

I got used to the light on the One, bugs me not to have it. Mostly because I've got a cord that has to sit just right, and sometimes the cable buried in my car's center console comes out and I don't notice it not charging.

You could use llama or Tasker to play a sound or something when its fully charged. Llama is free but Tasker is not. Tasker is also more advanced. Give Llama a try. You can do a lot of cool stuff with it. It automatically turns my phone to silent at work. That's a big plus.

Tasker is for rooted devices ??, I'm not rooted, as for Liama that is mainly a profiler, have you tried it, I don't think I want my phone beeping the whole time it is in the charger.

Both llama and tasker can be used unrooted, and can do more with root. Tasker is more powerful, but llama is a lot easier to learn to use. I have both, and use llama.

Just wanted to add that the Moto X led will only turn on during charging specifically if the phone battery is depleted down to bare bones which is on the rare side. In this case it will switch on.
