    the glance on my screen is the best notification ever. What I like most about windows phone is that it is not like android or ios.

    More accurate?

    Can the blinking light tell me if the notification is from my work email? Personal email? Twitter update? Facebook update? Voicemail? SMS message?

    Or is it just a dumb blinking light that could mean any or all of the above?

    on other phones and operating systems they can distinguish via colors and frequency of flash. I had this on a old Sammy and Blackberry. They blink different colors and at different rates.

    can the glance tell you anything without being close and opening your phone?

    "Close"...yes (except at night when I can see it from a decent distance).

    You don't have to open the phone... It's always on...that's the point....I can always see the time and my selected notifications. My favorite part of the phone. Particularly at night and while in meetings at work.

    The only difference between glance and a notification light is that you have to be able to see the screen to use Glance....no interaction....and it gives you way more info than a stupid light.

    I don't miss that damn BB light one bit.

    Read the first post..."does the 1520 have a notification light" or something to that extent. The original poster obviously doesn't have a 1520...or does and is too stupid to know that it doesn't.

    I assumed I was educating someone on why it doesn't and why Glance is THE feature on a Nokia phone to replace that.

    Don't buy the 1520 then and go buy a Blackberry...I hear they're selling like hot cakes because of their awesome notification light feature.

    Take it easy man, for me as the poster I already have Lumia 920 which is what I am using it now and I asked for more info to upgrade to Lumia 1520 , anyways each poster has his own opinion and we should respect that :)

    There's always at least one knob isn't there. I bet you're a deeply loved person by those who know you.

    I'm the greatest man on Earth...and my knob is loved as well!

    Seriously though...responding to specific posts and questions on a forum is all I was doing....that's the point. How would me NOT doing that let "everyone's opinion" not be known?

    Let someone create an app that uses the flash to give you the notification light you want...and then you will just have to leave your phone laying on its face the entire time.

    IPhone has the option to use flash as a notification light for maps and texts and stuff. Microsoft always has to play me-too when it comes to apple so expect the windows key to blink come windows 8.1

    I know you're probably being sarcastic, Jf, but that would be awesome!

    I don't see why we can't have both Glance and a blinking notification light (I do miss it from my Galaxy Note 2).

    Does Lumia 1520 have notification light , I mean when you have new msg or email, does it blink ?
    Even the old 920 should be capable. If you connect the Nokia software and put the phone in test mode u r able to flash the windows start button independently... they need to add this part of the room

    It's got nothing to do with the way we are holding the phone. If we are holding the phone we don't need a notification light as glance will do. It is when your away from your phone that it would be handy. Yes you can leave glance on all the time but why not have both. The windows light already flashes if the phone is charging when powered off. Why not use that.

    About 88% smartphones don't have notification lights.
    I'm not sure where you get your percentages from. Samsung smartphones from 2012 forward, the HTC One X, Nexus devices at least from the Galaxy Nexus forward and the BlackBerry Z10 all have notification lights. I'm sure that the Samsung smartphones alone make up more than 12% of smartphones. There are many more that have notification lights; I just named the ones that I have personal experience with.

    It does? Mine doesn't...

    If they did want to add a notification light though, I think the Windows button would be the best one to use. The problem is that there is no light on the "edge" of the phone...only on the face or the flash on the back.

    Thanks a lot Will.. U put out what exactly I think. And i would like to add some thing here, All phones other than WP, be it BB or anythng they use a special LED light as indicator. What fascinates me more in WP is that we have the coolest Windows icon which serves as Home button and also ''can be" made used as a notification led or that ever u call... Forget the glance.., Yes Black update has taken Glance into newer heights.., thats a known truth... See how cool a Wp phone can be of the Win icon is used as Notf'n LED.. :)
