Default Quick circle case Smart Lighting

It says that it can act as a notification
But so far reviewer only says phone n text notification

Will it work as notification light for other apps too?

Not quite sure what it is supposed to do. There is a cut out for the front led notification light but apart from when you double tap the screen or close it there is no light in standby. Also the cover itself does not have a light but a clear plastic ring which refracts the light from the screen, it looks ok but you can't customize the colour or anything. It is just white.

Edit: and whilst the cover has been on my phone I have noticed reduced battery. The rear cover is a different material to the original cover, it is a ridged plastic. It feels OK but not as nice as the normal rear cover.

The lighting on the circle case is fake, it is just a piece of clear plastic reflecting the LCD.
The LCD animate a ring around the clock when you close the cover. I haven't find any app to change the lighting yet, I hope one will come out soon.

As a side note to anyone wanting to get one.
If you get a Glass protector, I couldn't get the cover to magnetically close, it seems the extra mm from the glass is preventing this.
Anyone got a plastic screen protector, can you confirm the cover can magnetically close?
