Hi, I need a screen with a very bright screen. I am considering buying a nokia 8 but the only thing holding me back is the lack of led notification. Does it bother you or not? Appreciate anyones thoughts.

I don't miss it at all, and now I like the fact that it's not always blinking for something.

The glance screen will tell you if you missed phone calls or SMS, although you do have to move the phone for it to come on.

I thought that I would miss the notification LED, but am getting on fine without it.

thanks, so just moving the phone turns on glance screen? Seems like a good alternative.

Yes moving the phone will turn on the glance screen.

I attach two pictures, one of glance screen in operation and the second of the possible settings for the glance screen. The time-out for the glance screen can be set up to 20 minutes.

I should point out that while the screen on the Nokia 8 will not disappoint for clarity and brightness, that the glance screen is dim (to save battery) and you cannot make it brighter.

Hope that helps

Not really... It only shows counters for missed calls, mails and texts. Missed messages from other apps (like messengers) are not shown. Besides that, the counter font is very tiny. I turned off glance screen after a few days because I found it totally useless...

So, yes: I actually miss a notification LED.

    I'm the opposite end of the stick. I think glance is [email protected] and do miss the notification led.
