How to disable the notification LED on the Galaxy Note 8

Just like the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and most of Samsung’s other smartphones, the Galaxy Note 8 ships with a front-facing LED indicator that illuminates whenever you receive a notification or your battery is running low. There’s no denying the fact it’s a useful feature to have, but seeing as it also ships with an Always-On Display (AOD) mode, it’s not all that necessary, which is why the firm makes it super easy to disable.

How do I permanently disable the notification LED on my Galaxy Note 8?

Step 1: Head into Settings.

Step 2: Select Display.

Step 3: Locate LED Indicator, then flick the toggle to Off.
