    Just wondering if there's any LED notification on the 920 and if so, where is it located?

    Thanks.

    Not sure. On the technobuffalo review, they mention that when you put the phone on the wireless charger, there is an LED light that notifies you when the phone is charged.

    It wasn't clear if the LED was on the phone or the wireless charger.

    It's on the charger. The phone doesn't have a notification LED.

    That's actually kinda neat. The charger knows when the phone is charged.... Wirelessly.

    Not having a notification led: is it a hardware limitation or a software one?

    Neither, technically. LED is not natively supported by WP but OEMs can add in LED notification much like how HTC added in LED notification for missed calls on the HTC Titan.

    Someone should make an app where the Windows logo features breathing light as our "LED notification"

    Does it mean that if, let's say, Nokia wants to add this notification to the existing Nokia 920s it can?

    I'm into sending an email to Nokia. I don't think that MS should bother with this stuff. But maybe, just maybe, Nokia will answer :)

    yes, this is good question.. may be Microsoft can release an update to put phone on optional beeps incase of any pending notification... or may be they can lit up the windows button like Nokia N8 use to have.

    Also, it's new device and lock screen shows nothing, not even time..so probably thrid party app can come up with a similar concenpt of N8 lock screen animated notifications.

    but right now..the only option is sounds and lit up screen for notifications.

    Can't be done efficiently on the Lumia 920.

    While this too is lacking in the software, but this feature pretty much requires and AMOLED screen. AMOLED screens are capable of lighting up single pixels, meaning that for example a "screensaver clock" or something uses a non-existant amount of battery. Non-AMOLED screens, such as the one on 920 light up every single pixel every time the screen is on cos there is a backlight, meaning displaying a clock as a "screensaver" would use a huge amount of battery. However, even the WPs with AMOLED screens that would have the hardware to use this feature are not able to use this feature cos it's not supported by the software.

    When I received email, the screen won't lit up. It will only notify by sound. I'm not sure about sms though, haven't been using it to text somebody since I bought the phone.

    Yeap, definitely. It will be great if the Windows Logo can fade in and fade out as the notification light. Beside fade in and fade out we can set the interval time as well. Or when the phone is fully charged, it will just stay on. So that we know the phone is fully charged.

    I totally agree. Not having a visual indication of any kind that some stuff needs your attention is like answer machine with no light for new messages.

    They probably could but I don't think Nokia is interested in LED notifications.

    Well actually Nokia had said that try to include features that were present in there Symbian phones into WP. I mean the always on watch/screensaver is a incredibly great idea, what didn't they do it on the 800? Or the 900? Or the 922? And I miss the notification light that was on my E5 (coolest thing: it lights up around the middle button with the 4 directions thingy) . I usually like to keep my phone in silent mode and take a look at it every once in a while to see if I've got something new. Can't do that with WP =/

    I'd also want something like this, kinda like the notification LED behaviour from the N9.
