    Hello all,

    So I understand why we won't get the awesome glance screen or those really cool active notifications that Moto X users will get (SO jealous of those), but is there anyway we can get LED notifications?

    The LED under the speaker grille in the front lights up for 3 reasons in my experience: Red for charging, Flashing Red for low battery and Green for full charge. It would be really great to get the LED to periodically light up (flashing green?) when I have notifications waiting for me. It's such a simple feature and I don't see why we can't have it.

    Cheers,

    Sheik

    That's all up to HTC. I'm pretty sure they aren't doing much to boost their WP devices.

    As far I know, WP8 doesn't support led notification. Maybe an OEM update from HTC will fix that for 8.1 but I doubt. 8.1 preview doesn't suppot it.

    Personally I think Microsoft should use the start button pulse for notifications. All current phones have the start button, some new ones will not, but that's what you get with a budget phone

    Unfortunately, Microsoft forgot to do that for WP8.x. That's quite sad because led notifications for compatible devices like HTC and Samsung give a "business feeling", like the old BB phones. ๐Ÿ™

    Unless MS does something about it, it ain't gonna happen.
