Just bought (and about to return) the HTC One M8 because the LED notifier/blinker is a shocker. It is very small, only has Red, Green and Blue (!!) and no apps like LED notifier can manipulate it.

My old S3 was great and had a lovely big LED blinker but am considering the Z2 as I fancy a change. Can someone please reassure me that the LED is big, has all the colours and will work with an LED app?

Thanks.

I'm not sure but I think the Z2's LED can only display green and red, I hope I'm wrong

I have orange and blue also but have not figured out a way to assign a specific color to a specific type of notifications (like blue for SMS, Orange for email...).

You should be able to change it with an app. Try out Light Manager? Some of the changes require root, but not all.

I've tested out mine via the test menu. It's able to output R,G,B there. It would make sense that it is possible for the phone to mix those colours to display other colours (like the orange and purple that some system events use) but I've been unable to get it to show using LightFlow.

I see a lot more colors than R,G,B on my z1 and zl (purple from yahoo mail, white from gmail for example). So there is no reason z2 notifier will output only those three colors

Could someone be so kind as to test it with LED Manager or Light Flow? It's really simple. Select the app, the colour and then test it. Appreciate any that could this. About to buy but need all the colours!

There's blue for sure. Seen in many videos. There's no yellow?

But yes, its quite large. Another thing I love about the Z2. Its the second largest in current flagships after Oppo Find 7.

There are LEDs for each of the 3 primary colours (red, green and blue) and those are mixed in different intensities to show other colours.
