    Hi ...
    after watching some youtube videos about the HTC 8x, i noticed in some points that some devices got a blinking light at the top inside the speaker, So my question is: is there a notification LED in the phone such as the one fount in SG3? or its the same light in the (HTC ONE X) which is as far as i know can only be seen from the camera and normal user cant benefit from it.
    thank you guys:)

    My HTC Trophy has an led light that flashes for a missed call. It doesn't work for any other notifications though. I doubt any WP8 will offer led notifications to the extent android does.

    Oh i see .. i did notice that about the Trophy, but i thought its a full notification light system.
    i came from a Blackberry :D so I'm a bit addicted to the LED red blinking light
    thanks @scottcraft

    It's a great feature and I'm not sure why other o/s makers haven't adopted this. Out of all the features I miss from BlackBerry, this is one I miss the most.
    My next phone...

    I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that most stock applications will make use of it, so probably calls, SMS, MMS, email, maybe even FaceBook.

    After that video this morning i was sure about the charging light, and i did also see a red/orange one i think it was for SMS, hope the same for e-mails and some apps such as KIK. Im a good kikker :D

    Hey what's up guys, new on here. I think it is a full notification led light. In this video its clearly blinking purple. I'm assuming for some kind of notification.

    Actually, I believe that's an orange light due to low battery.

    You may be right, either way it's good to see there actually using the led for things. It'd be pretty dumb if they don't use it for SMS,calls,and other things besides battery.

    Thats the video i was talking about, though its confusing that there is 5 e-mails and also the phone is low in battery, so we cant be sure yet

    Thank you though

    Nope, only shows up when charging or when the battery is low :-( Bit of a disappointment, since in Touch Diamond 2 it was used for messages, emails, missed calls etc

    I too am coming from another ecosystem android and this might be a deal breaker for me. I posted a thread on the lumia 920 forum because I thought maybe I was just missing how to set up notifications. I can't sit all day (have to have my phone on silent and vibrate is almost non existent on my phone) and turn my phone on and off just to try and see if I have a text message. On android there was an app called no led that would display a text or email etc icon floating around in your screen for how ever long you designated.

    I dove head first into this ecosystem with excitement and love so much about it. I think android is great but don't plan to root etc and was drawn to windows by its premise of get in and get out in short periods of time. I even watched the windows promo videos where windows raced android and iOS to see who competed a task quicker and agree windows wins on so many great things. I have spent a long time on forums and watched videos and read articles for the last year waiting for the right time to give another try to windows. I bought the lumia 900 and returned it because I heard the new operating system would come out and it would not be on that lumia 900. My job is at a front desk of a doctors office where technically they don't want us to even have our phones out, yet be messing around with them. I have 3 teens and the only way they communicate with me is through text messages so have my phone on my desk but try to be discreet about only using it if I have to communicate with one of my kids. Yesterday I had my lumia 920 out and on vibrate for the first time. A coworker and I tested it out a few times and barely could tell it did vibrate, you had to be watching for it and listening for it. So if I happen to not to be staring at my phone all day the only way I know if I have a text is to physically open up the phone. This discreet notification light unfortunately for this reason is a major feature in a phone for me. I have posted a thread in the lumia 920 area looking for suggestions on what people do as far as notifications. I did a web search thinking perhaps I was missing something since recently 70 something people looked at the thread but no one had made any suggestions. I also have gone on the Microsoft website and voted and posted on this being a feature to add to windows phones. So with all that being said I am not just lightly saying this Is an important feature looking for a way to blast windows or excuse to return my phone. It is essential to my phone use unfortunately. If anyone has any suggestions on this thread I would gladly read them. Thanks.

    If you can't feel the vibration of the 920, it'd be pretty weird. I thought the 920 has one of the loudest and weirdest sounding vibrations?

    Have read and voted on this issue on the lumia forum too. Checked all the settings several times and there is not a setting I can find to increase the vibrate. On my day off tomorrow I plan to drive back to AT&T to check their display units to see if perhaps my phone is faulty in this area.

    Some actually hate the terrible hard vibrate it's giving. Perhaps your set is indeed faulty :P I haven't get my hands on one yet:/ so it's hard to tell whether I would like or loathe the sound. But I guess I'm all in for the hard vibrate :P
