Oneplus 7 no LED notifications or Ambient display?

    Sorry if this has been asked, but all i find is stuff either related to the OP6t or OP7Pro, it seems near impossible to make an exact search on the Oneplus 7 STANDARD

    The Oneplus7 is missing the notification LED (thumbs down 1+ !!) what alternatives are there to this feature ? I read the OP7Pro has ambient display (i assume always on display), but i can't seem to find that in the options, where is it on the Op7standard ?

    if the phone is resting on a table, i have no idea if there are new notifications because there's no LED and the ambient option doesn't stay ON. This is also a problem when charging because i have no clue when it's 100% charged (used to turn the LED solid green when it did)

    what a major screw up Oneplus ! Can't believe i have to go on the forums to ask about something almost taken for granted on most phones.

    Did you not read up on the specs of the device before purchasing?

    What is your point? Like i said, the LED is practically taken for granted on most phones, do you need to read the spec sheet to make sure the phone has, say, a sim card tray ? I'm looking for alternative solutions not who to blame.

    noLED app does not work on op7

    My point was pretty self explanatory...did you bother reading the specs before purchasing, instead of just assuming a certain feature is there. You should never take any feature for granted on a smartphone, always research before hand.

    Plenty of apps available on the play store for notifications.

    that app overlays with the stock overlay, means you have to unlock the phone twice or dismiss the LED blinker overlay first, not good but thanks for suggesting

    Trust me I looked and dl all the AOD and led apps in the market. they are all trash... they won't go past the lock screen makes you fingerprint it twice. Oneplus removed the AOD feature and ambient display is not the same I know. All you can do is keep requesting the feature in the feedback section.

    I use Glimpse Notifications to just wake the screen whenever I receive a notification

    Agreed, i tried a lot of them and none does the job as simply and accurate as a small little LED.
    Coming from the OP3, i'm almost feeling like this is a downgrade, no LED, headphonejack, smile detection, simple stuff that made the phone great.

    Install this ...

    And who cares if the phone is charged? You waiting on it? Don't. Think you need to unplug it? Please don't. Android phones like to be plugged in so they can dream of optimized code!

    It has a camera in the notch. What do you think that notch is there for?

    Are you trolling? You can't be that stupid
