    Does the Galaxy have an informational* LED? The only Galaxy I've seen is my own, so I don't know if it's broken or just not present.

    *(Like for power, charging or phone status. Not the camera flash led, not the backlight led.)

    There's no LED. It was a bit of a stupid ommision in my opinion. I guess you would have to use some app to vibrate ever x minutes or something instead.

    BTW, the thing you see to the right of the speaker (if you hold it to the light) is a proximity/light sensor. It turns off the screen when your on a call and put your head to the speaker etc - similar to the iphone.

    Wow, I'm really surprised I haven't seen any complaints about the lack of LED. Maybe I'm just trained by my old phones, but not being able to tell at a glance across the room if I have service, or email, or it's charging, is a serious bummer!

    It's like having no light on the buttons. Is that a Samsung thing that they don't do that, I'm so used to Nokias.
