I tried two notification light apps - 'Light manager' & 'Light Flow'. I had problems with 'Light Manager' where the notification light would not clear even after I had read the waiting message or after clearing the missed call; it kept on flashing. Each time I had to restart my phone to clear it. 'Light Flow' works perfectly on my N5 however. Some users are complaining that it doesn't work on the N5 but I haven't had any problems. I have set the LED to flash Red for missed calls, Green for missed texts, Cyan for Twitter, Yellow for Gmail, and Purple for Whatsapp; and they all work fine. If the light works with a 3rd party app then it should work without. Just poor programming by Google I suppose.

Just had a missed call - notification light not working - I've read about the light and people are saying sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Its about time the problem was fixed.

This is fr all public to note.
AnonD-43136, 13 May 2014Immersive mode - basically full screen mode where you can get notification bar to disappear. @james79
There is an app named 'Immersive Full-Screen Mode' on the Play Store. I can't add a link because GSMArena wont allow links beginning with https://
There is a warning on the page though:
IMPORTANT: because of an Android limitation, the keyboard will not work while in immersive mode.
So you might be unlucky there.

Perhaps you mean something else?

On to another subject - is there an immersive app that I can use where the keyboard still works? I havnt got rooted n5.
AnonD-43136, 12 May 2014Go into settings/display/pulse notification light and check. @ james79
I have a Nexus 5 and the notification light does NOT work without a 3rd party app. Two of my friends also have Nexus 5 phones and the notification light does NOT work on their phones either without a 3rd party app.
There are plenty of web pages and forums of people complaining that the notification light does NOT work.
Perhaps you have the only Nexus 5 ever made with a notification light that does work.

No it does NOT light up. Don't give out false information.
You have to use 'Light Flow' or 'Light Manager' to make the notification light work for missed calls/texts.
The Led does not light up when charging unless you install a third party app from the play store. Led should light up for messages and missed calls etc though if you just enable it in settings.
