    I have the GTab 2 7.0 and have noticed that any icons to the left of the time on the status bar (eg. new sms notification icon) are so faint and greyed out I can barely see them. Is this the same for everyone or a glitch? The time itself, plus battery and signal strength are all bright and clear. Running Go Launcher Ex but same problem with stock launcher.

    Finding it very annoying as I cannot see whether I have any new messages without opening the messaging app (Go Notifications plug-in doesn't seem to work either).

    Would really appreciate hearing what others' sms status bar icons look like, are they clearly visible?

    Thanks for your reply Alnn and for taking the time to upload a screenshot, kind of you.

    Yes the icon is still grey and faint even at full brightness. Contacted Samsung but they offered no help unfortunately.

    I have the same tablet as the OP and notice the same problem with the notification icons just to the left of the time. It is odd that it's the only thing down there that is not brightly lit and easy to read.
    Wish there was a fix.
