Good to know. I was comparing it to my Note2 on PhoneArena and they didnt list that as a feature. I was thinking it didnt have it and how much I hated that on my Droid Charge(?). Thanks for the info.

It's really small though. I'm coming from the Droid Razr HD so I'm used to the nice light that phone had. This one is harder to see.

Yeah coming from other devices with LED this is by far the cheapest/most minimal looking. I went even as far to install the 3rd party active notifications app since I got used to it instead of the LED on the Moto X.

It's there. But it's not as bright as it was on the M7.

Default RGB LED Control Support?

Hey Guys,

Does the M8 support multiple color LED notifications, ie Blue for Facebook, White for SMS, Pink for e-Mail etc?

Generally you need to have Root and installed some Apk/app like 'LightFlow' from the play store.

Such a small feature but a big impact for me to be able to tell what notifications there are from a distance or in a meeting with out waking up the phone.

Im keen to buy a HTC M8 tomorrow if it supports this, if not ill wait for the S5 next week.

Thanks

Any HTC phone I've had uses only green and orange. It's the same for the M8.

Lightflow does not work. I've tested every option and could not get it to work wit the M8. It sucks.
