While in the middle of a phone call with the phone to my face I received a new email resulting in the LED flashing on and off in my face for the remainder of the phone call. This is very annoying behaviour, not to mention it looks pretty stupid particularly in a dimly lit environment.

Suggestion: Don't blink the LED notification when the phone is in use making/receiving a phone call (cellular or IP), but do blink the LED once the call is ended and the screen is turned off (unless the notification is acknowledged before the screen is turned off, of course).

Should the LED notification be disabled during a call also for incoming missed calls? Also, what if instead of suppressing LED notifications, during a call the blinking attribute translates into a half-lit, solid light? Would it me it more acceptable?

I can't think of any good reason for having a torch (as that is what a lit LED becomes, half-lit or otherwise) shone in my face during a phone call. Also, It makes you look ridiculous to others in dark conditions - think what other phone shines a light on the mouth of the speaker (there aren't any, for good reason). So no, even a half-lit LED wouldn't be acceptable - it needs to be fully off during a call, just like the screen.

For incoming calls there should be a sound heard during a call, but I understand that at the moment Jolla doesn't have that.
