The notification LED can be a useful tool, especially when you are in situations that require you to silence your phone. The OnePlus One uses a full, multi-color LED that sits to the right of the front-facing camera and can be fully customized to adjust the color of the default notification as well as to add colors and/or blink rates for specific applications (e.g., Gmail, Messaging, etc.).
