But now that they know its impossible im sure they will forget that crazy idea.
Illuminated logo, is out of question, as 60-70 million order booked fr manufacturer. Apple will only realize when it will not be sold. No sapphire glass, no price reductions.
To all the apple haters out there: Apple is not copying, apple is perfecting every feature mentioned above :D peaaaaaaaaaaace stop hatin ;)
what's the point of this? are you keeping your phone always face down? totally illogical
Good move by Apple. A notification indicator would be too useful on a smartphone. Apple will dictate when its sheep needs/wants it. 1984.

The screen is an LCD. So even if you want only the middle of the screen to light up, the whole Backlight will be on asks that will drain the battery equal to when the screen is on.
It would be a good idea if the screen was OLED but for LCDs is not possible.

People got frustrated when Apple ditched DVD drives on Macs because they refused to jump on the Blu-Ray bandwagon like everyone else. Sometimes less is better.

Even though it's probably the best angle to see an iPhone from.
Back notification is pointless bcoz no one would see it unless a user likes putting down its phone down facing its rear. A small apple logo on the front (maybe on the top right or top left) would be nice as light notification
LOL, notification lights...nothing more than battery drainers.
I keep a minimal homescreen, NO wallpaper (black background) turn off all blinking lights, just to make sure I squeeze as much battery life.

There was A LOT of bad opinions and complains about the angular design of the iPhone 4... and after that supposedly bad press, the device sold like never before... and it was praised for its design afterwards... it was trend setter.
Now Apple is going back to curvy and it will again set trends on that... because fashion is what they are best at (after marketing)
So putting a notification light which can be optionally for the people who uses it is actually a great positive change... and it would drain a lot less battery than the flash led option already available.
But in my personal opinion, I will still get an Xperia next... probably Z3 Compact

Actually, I'm totally opposite of what you said. LED notification makes a lot of difference such as I can see if I missed any message/call or even when the phone is fully charged.
