    Hi everybody! As you know the LED light notification was removed from the latest OnePlus 6T in favor for smaller notch. But this could be brought back by simply using the display! I´m very surprised that the developers didn´t come up with this themselves!

    Who are the users?
    All OnePlus users
    What is the proposed function?
    Being alerted of having a notification without having to touch the phone. (When phone is on the table etc)
    What is the user value?
    Bringing back the good old feature which we love and miss
    If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?
    The LED light as on previous OnePlus phones

    As you all know, the current ambient display looks something like this:
    You see that you have notifications, only once you pick up / move the phone.
    My idea would be to have a tiny notification on top the screen lit up, that marks a new notification.
    For example Messenger:




    Low Battery

    All at the same time:

    Basically it could work with every app!

    And now once you pick up the phone, you´d get the small preview on the ambient screen like in the old times:

    First of all GREAT IDEA. I myself posted something similar today, not knowing of this post.
    No, it will not lead to burn-in issues if one of the two or both conditions are met: 1) if notification pulses and/or moves and is not constantly on and 2) if there's a setting similar to DND, i.e. user to be able to set specific interval when the notifications do not show, for example while sleeping :)

    I like your idea but the ambient screen already shows icons, so its a little redudant, i think it could just be little dots, like imitating the LED, but more customizable,and you could have more than one at the time, i saw i jailbreak tweak for iphone x that do something similar

    I would add a feature similar to the Moto Active Display - when you tap the icon, it should show you the content of the notification.
