    Is there a blinking light alert ?

    I am used to have a blinking light alert in case of a missed call, also a mail, sms or even a whatsapp message with my previous Motorola Droid. I even could arrange different colors to different situations. I could not find this in SII and I really miss it ! Is there a way to make it possible ?

    I used to have this on my N900 and also missed it. The closest I've found is called NoLED. It will blink a few pixels on your screen which are entirely customisable, so you could say missed call shows up red. Because of the nature of AMOLED, it only uses up power for those few pixels so it's not a massive battery hog.

    I've also set mine to vibrate every 5 minutes that I don't unlock the phone when I have a missed [call, email, message, etc], which is another option in NoLED.

    I've been using Easy Reminder but I don't think it works all the time. I'll give this a go instead.

    EDIT: Love this app, very useful, good recommendation.

    Is NoLED only for missed calls ? Or does it also notify for missed messages and so forth ?

    You can use it for virtually everything that gives out notifications I believe, including all your examples.

    I've been doing some testing. My S2 idles losing at about 1% an hour. With NoLED on it loses about 12% an hour (if it's continuously showing a notification). If I set it to dim the screen about 10% an hour. If I set to blink still about 10%. I'm fine with those numbers since I'll generally catch a notification with-in maybe 10 mins.

    That's really weird because my phone doesn't even use 10% an hour if the screen's on.. do you have it set to vibrate at regular intervals too, that may cause some of the drainage?

    No vibrate. The phone wasn't really doing much of anything. The 1% per hour with NoLed off seemed pretty good.
