    ... or is the Z10 LED a little "wimpy" when compared with the 9900 LED?

    Seems like the 9900 LED lights up a dark room. The Z10 LED is weaker, and can't be noticed unless the phone is laying flat, facing up, and/or towards you a little bit. Ya almost have to pick it up and look at it to see a notification.

    Seems to me like the LED "curled" around the top of the phone like the 9900 is easier to detect on a glance--- almost like a beacon--- than the Z10 LED.

    Not a BIG DEAL, but, still something I noticed.

    Interesting, mine are both very close but I would have to say the Z10 is brighter.

    Bright as can be here. Yesterday I had it in my shirt pocket in the BlackBerry case and had no problem catching it out of the corner of my eye.

    It catches my eye more than my 9930 but maybe because the Zed is beautiful?

    Same for me. My 9810 definitely has a brighter LED.

    It's not really a complaint and it was stated that "It's not a big Deal" guys smh. ANYWAY I agree my 9930 lights up my room more than my z10 does but it's not a deal breaker by no means.

    I have noticed that the z10 led isn't as bright as my 9900 but it's not a huge issue really.

    I prefer my 9900's led. I hope the Q10 will have one more like that of the Bold.

    Here here...although I have it via bebuzz pro, has an option to have the green flashing led along with other alerts. But I'd like to see it brought back as an option.

    The 9900 was bigger, I think. I noticed it was seemingly more noticeable, but both catch my attention just fine.

    I believe they are the same. I noticed that third party apps can adjust the brightness of the led. Like Advanced OS and Led

    To me the Q10's led seems larger than the Z10's after seeing a recent video. For me, that's what I prefer. It's closer to older BlackBerry phone leds I guess.

    I may check my settings again, but it still seems to me that I have to physically look at the Z10 to see if an LED is flashing. THe 9900 seems like a light house next to the Z10.

    Looking at it, it could be the mechanical design of the device, and location of the LED relative to the top of the phone as well. Doesn't give you as much visual "range" as the 9900 it seems.

    IS this a show stopper? absolutely NOT. just obervation(s).
