    I thought I read in a review of the new Turbo that it does not have a notification light...

    Is this true?

    It has a notification "Mode" to the screen which is better than a light. It shows you what it is that happened and you can view it and then decide via finger swipe whether you are going to ignore OR go directly to that function be it text or email, message, VM etc.

    Right, that is my understanding...

    So, if your phone is sitting on your desk or on/in a wireless charger, etc. - there will be no blinking colored light to let you know you have notifications...

    You actually have to go to the phone (wave your hand over it, etc.) to see if you have any notifications...

    Correct?

    No. You will see it "Pulse" the notification symbol at you in a size and shape easily recognizeable. I'll be honest once I learned what it was doing and my options - I love it.
    It makes a blinking light seem rather primitive. I can see from a distance what it is/was that happened and make my decision. Blinking light, you don't know what it is.

    OK, that is not my understanding though...

    The notification symbol does not stay on your phone that long - like a blinking colored light did.

    After your "time out setting" - the phone goes to blank - and you cannot see the notification symbol.

    Where you could see the blinking light.

    Correct?

    With "Approach" turned on If you think you have missed a notification a simple wave over the screen will light up the active display and show if there are any notifications.

    I'll try calling myself and report back.

    Nope. It pulses about every 7 seconds . Very cool.

    Screen fades on for about 2-3 seconds and fades out (every 7 seconds) symbol for "missed call" Touch the screen and either let go (ignore) or swipe to Unlock or the other way takes you right to the area in question (text, call, email, etc)

    Indefinitely though? How long did you let it pulse before touching it?

    Sorry. Active Display intrigues me a great deal. Not enough for me to wanna give up my shiny new Note, but you know...

    I never get tired of being asked that......:p

    I waited several minutes. I'm not sure when/If it times out. I do know it doesn't take much to make the normal "come-on" activate. As an aside, it is a neat function and one that indears the phone (to me) I don't think I'd swap a device for the function but, it was a nice surprise.
