The Notification-LED breaks with the idea of sailfish/jolla being intuitive.

The blinking/steady behaviour for charging brakes with notifications as I do not look for the colour but see that it is blinking.

Have it change the colour to green when on 100% but only blink when there are notifications (just ran into that with no notifications there). Charging could be a pulsing or a low brightness setup.

I don't know what the lowest power settings might be for this LED but we should consider "signals" with low power consumption for minor relevancy.

Customizable with a nice GUI would be appreciated as always :)

+ do not pulse for charging, it is distracting (in the dark even worst). Pulse/blink only when there is something wortwhile happened (messages, calls, calendar event)

@CsTom coming from N900 I had an amber pulsing light 50%-30%-50%... for charging which was only recognizable as pulsing when directly looked at and so low in brightness that you have no reflection in your room at night, -1 for your objection

no blinking without notifications please

Personally I would like to see "breathing light" - when the phone is on that LED is gradually switching on and off. When something is happening, let the LEd be more like a strobo.

+1 for the heart beat / breathing slowly pattern for charging

I'd like a color customization according event or alert type, blinking sequence choice for each type of alert or event and it would be complete. Also a static green LED when full charged would be better than the actual behaviour.

What about

  • constant orange LED when charging but not full
  • constant green LED when fully charged
  • both above interrupted with white light when additionally a notification occurs?

customizing own LED colors with different ambiences might be nice too.
