The aodNotify app adds a notification light directly to Samsung’s Always On Display. Well, not only that, but you could also select different types of notification light styles. Likewise, it could show the notification light around the camera cutout, screen edges or even simulate a notification LED dot in the status bar. And if your device has been updated to OneUI 2.0 (Android 10), then you could use the low energy mode too.
Talking about low energy, you might have a general concern regarding battery consumption, as these apps are generally known to take up heavy battery juice. However, the developer claims that since this notification light app is integrated into Samsung Always on Display, the battery consumption stands minimum. On that note, if you aren’t a fan of this AOD, the app can make sure to only activate the same when you receive any notifications.
