The position and size of a smartphone’s LED notification light can make the difference on whether you notice that new email, SMS text or social media message. Sony Xperia phones have used various notification lights in the past from the flashing bar in the Xperia S to the colourful illuminating bar of the Xperia SP.
More recent Xperia phones have been more muted affairs when it comes to the type of notification used. The Xperia Z2 was one of our favourites, with the light integrated to the top speaker. The Xperia Z3 LED was smaller and circular, located in the corner of the device. With the latest Xperia X model, Sony has moved the LED notification light to the right side of the earpiece as seen below.
The light looks quite small, although we’ll wait to see how it would work in practice before passing judgment. Where does this notification light rate versus other Sony Xperia devices you’ve tried? Which model is your favourite in terms of LED light? We’d love to hear your thoughts below.
