wait; is there really no notification light on the S10? Why would they leave that out of a flagship device?

Because they knew someone could create it. That's what nice about the Android unlike Apple. So stop being sarcastic and go back to your Apple fan threads.

Well now there so you don't have to "Screw that" and don't act like that.

my question was quite serious and I do not appreciate the snarky response. I do not currently even own any Apple products.

 

A software solution like that will always eat up more power than an actual LED notification light. plus this app is not even official from Samsung, it's an XDA project because the functionality is missing.

 

What reasoning could Samsung possibly have for leaving a simple notification LED off of a flagship device; I personally cannot think of anything. the LED could easily be on the side or something if they absolutely needed it off of the front face.

It is coming in an update but we don't need it through Samsung anymore because holey light pretty soon will become out of BETA and be exactly what Samsung comes out in their update. To  me that's what great about Android.
