    How would all Lumia devices get a notification light when they do not have an in-built LED notification light? Are you referring to perhaps using the backlit capacitive keys? That still doesn't work, as quite a few Windows Phones don't have backlit capacitive keys and a few more have software keys.

    No one really has an idea what the "LED notification" feature in W10 really is. It could be hidden notification lights as some have speculated, it could also mean flashing the Windows capacitive button or just flashing the camera flashlight (similar to the iPhone).

    It could also mean turning the display on(like in today) when receiving notification rather than just playing a sound and vibrate.

    Pure speculation. Is there any confirmation whether that sensor is actually a light or something else? Has anyone powered it using a low external power source and illuminated it?

    First: The display of Windows Phones come on to display notifications if you pick up the phone and hold it up. I'm not talking about the Glance screen, it's just a basic feature that as far as I know has been on every Windows Phone for a long time. It might not light up immediately, but if you pick it up right after receiving a notification it will.
    Second: No one has any solid confirmation that the Lumia 730 really does have an LED notification light and besides, Microsoft isn't going to add that kind of functionality for the benefit of one phone that hasn't sold all that well.

    As I mentioned earlier, was anyone able to light it using an external low power supply?

    It's not a notification led, it's an infrared sensor status light

    Correct. Only the 735 has the LED light (it's on the other side at the top). The 730 doesn't have it.

    As per this video it does seem like the 735 has a light capable of blinking. Not sure whether that would end up as the notification light though

    It is said that in the BLU WIN HD LTE there is notification light that is lit up when the phone is charging.
    A few firmware tweaks and maybe this cud be turned into a notification light?

    I think that for all Lumias with capacitive backlit buttons should have the start button light up. I think it should also be a feature that you can disable if it becomes annoying.

    Lol. really lol. It is obvious that is the thing that senses light or something (sorry idk the name proximity sensor or idk) What im saying is on the top left part of it. As shown in this video ( had the time to search it up again so yeah)

    It also looks like its fake since its not a LED light. (He's saying its not for LED notification then why is it lighting up in his video.)
