PSA: Galaxy S10 doesn’t have a notification LED

The Galaxy S10 lineup brings slimmer bezels with the Infinity-O displays, which puts the front cameras in a hole cut into the display, and that has brought a disadvantage many of us may not like. Yes, as the title revealed, the Galaxy S10 doesn’t have a notification LED. The reason is simple: lesser space because of the Infinity-O display, although the rest of the sensors we expect are present on the device.

But there’s no alternative to a notification LED, as some would say, so users will have to make do with Always On Display to keep a track of notifications and alerts. Thankfully, One UI/Android Pie has an option that allows you tap the screen to show the Always On Display screen for 30 seconds, so you don’t have to have it always enabled if you are worried about wasting battery life. Hopefully, Samsung will be able to find a solution to this and introduce it with the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S11, but at this moment it’s something you might want to take into account if you’re looking to buy a Galaxy S10.
