    I was put off the 6T because of the lack of notification light but I'm hoping that the 7 will have something inbuilt. I like my phone silent and glance down to see if the notification light is blinking.
    I guess this can be incorporated into an AOD but OnePlus never seem to like that idea. I don't care if it uses a little extra power.
    I just want a visual way to check the phone without touching it or picking it up. I have noise cancelling headphones on a lot too so audible only notifications aren't much use.

    I realise there are apps out there to fix this but surely this isn't ideal.

    Pity. Heard this phone has an edge notification but only flashes once. What damn use is that when I'm out of the room? I don't want to obsessively check my phone to see if there's a notification waiting.

    If that's so, the ambient display we already had was just as good as this new feature

    I went to the pop up store. When you get a notification, the side edges of the screen lights up. I don't know if it flashes continuous like old phones (it was in retail mode). But it's not as subtle like the past but at least they have it?

    use Plus Beat app from Google Play, this resolved my Notification issue in my 6t. Its a great app and i have the option to set the time when the blinking notifications should be turned off. So i can save battery when sleeping. although it will only pulse one icon at a time but still does the job pretty well
