My favourite things about Android 4.0: Part 2

Hello again reader!

This post is about another one of my favourite features of Android 4.0, this one isn’t exclusive to Android 4.0, but still a great feature of the Android OS: The notification LED! How many times have you left your phone in a room, walked out of the room for some reason while your phone received  a text, come back in and not picked up the  text message because you didn’t know you had it? On most Android phones a little, non power hogging, LED light flashes so you know you have a notification of some kind! Never happened to you? OK, imagine your watching a YouTube video on your phone and you get a notification, but the video has audio (Which it probably does) so your phone doesn’t play the notification sound, which allows you to keep enjoying the video, and out of the corner of your eye you see a little light flashing. This can only mean two things: Either the LED is malfunctioning and flashing for no reason or you have a new notification! A notification LED was high on my list when choosing my new phone and on some phones the colour it flashes can be changed depending what type of notification you receive!

Thanks for moving your eyes in line with the words I have written, if that is indeed what you did!

  1. Hi shyguy306,
    Notification light seems such a simple idea, yet one which, I assume, not all phone manufacturers have included in their products. Having read this, I am wondering why they don’t all have one!
