    Before I go any further, know that this is not my idea. I was on The Verge's Microsoft Tribe and came upon this post by the user, KingDingDan:
    Windows Phone notification light concept. | The Verge Forums

    In short, it is an idea for LED notifications (when the new Notification Hub is implemented), where the LED light behind the Windows logo on the front of all WP devices glows and dimmers slowly indicating you have a new notification. The LED notification can be disabled.

    One of the really cool things about this idea is, it doesn't require additional hardware changes to present devices, or new devices. It works with the LED light already built into WP8 devices.

    An example of how it will look:


    If you like this idea and would like to see it implemented into WP8 devices, please go the link below and vote for it on Windows Uservoice:
    webOS style notification light

    What do you guys think?

    There have been a few of these suggestions made in the past. Hopefully MS will listen and implement it. Also cast my vote too.

    Already voted to that, but in the case of my phone, the 8X, I'd love to see that charging red LED at the top blink when I get a notification, something like we see on blackberry devices.

    Ditto on the red, green charging light. One of the things I loved about Blackberry. Make it blink.

    A very convenient feature, especially when the ringer is in silent mode...

    Does all hardware have three individual lights?

    Some phones look like it's only two on the edges.

    This would be awesome. Plus 2 votes. I don't think there's any way right now to know if you have a missed call or text message without actually pressing the sleep button.

    I already sent this matter to HTC via email and one of the reps said he/she sent my idea to the HTC HQ for future update. Maybe you should too!
