    Hrm. Plausable, but the color of the icons is noticeably muted. e.g. Touchdown uses an obnoxiously bright yellow envelope for messages, but its a soft fuzzy amber now. It's almost like they intentionally dithered the notification tray icons.

    Exclamation ICS App ICONS to Small and too Dim

    I hope they fix that.
    Indeed , this is a major issue for me as well. Next I am going to check ICS compliant apps that offer a status bar left side ICON and see if it is specific to ICS desinged Apps.

    Will report back

    My wife's razr got the update last night, and the brightness on notification icons are ridiculously dim at the moment. She's not a happy camper
    No one cares what device or app your comment was sent from.

    Just finally got ICS on my Maxx. First think I noticed, too. Not cool. I'm sure with enough people complaining about this, it's something that'll be able to be fixed with a software update. (Hopefully!)

    Highly displeased with the size/dimness of the status bar icons now. Almost useless for me. Seeking some way of altering since I'm rooted.

    As I understand it, it's mainly from apps not adhering to the new ICS design standards. I guess they're supposed to be plain white apps that the OS "dims" when not in use.

    So if an app already displays a grey notification (or other color) it looks extremely dark.

    That's just what I've been hearing in other developer forums, not entirely sure if it's true or not.

    I must be going crazy because i see no issues with my icons. Size and brightness do not seem any different to me. Nothing noticeable anyway.

    Lol. I was thinking the same thing. I read all these complaints about notifications but no screen shots.

    Honestly, it may be dimmer but i have been on ics for months now and it just never jumped out at me as an issue. I will have you start pay attention to my notifications.
