Why is only one of the two front LEDs used?

    On the hero there are two LEDs on either side of the top speaker. Why is it that only the left one is used? Am I missing something?

    When charging the phone - the top left LED is always lit. Whenever I receive a text/email/whatever, it doesn't blink or anything. Is there a way to change this?

    I was under the impression that the right "LED" was not a LED at all but just there to look symmetrical and a aesthetically pleasing to the eye. If it is an LED, it sure would look sort of weird to have two different LED lights blinking on and off like eyes.

    I am not 100% sure if I am right about what I said above. Perhaps, someone else can chime in about this?

    I think there is only one LED, and one light sensor.

    Only one LED...the other side is a light sensor for the auto-screen brightness and for turning the button lights on/off.

    You have asked this question twice in 2 seperate threads...asking again is not going to change the answer you got that you did not like.
