My old Samsung S4 has an RGB LED that is used for general notifications, like a pending message in some chat app or SMS, or a missed call, with different colors. It also shows charging state when connected to AC.

I sort of assumed that the power LED in the Gemini serves the same purpose, but I fail to find the Android setting for the notification LED. In the LineageOS (Android 6.0.1) build on the Samsung phone, there is Settings → Display & LEDs, where I can activate the notifications and also the automatic choice of colour. This is missing on the Gemini.

I do see the right LED lighting up during an incoming call and it continues to blink in some varying pattern for some time after the remote side hung up, for some time. Eventually, it goes dark. The Samsung phone nicely keeps on a slow faded blinking (with rather short times where the LED is on full brightness … easy on the battery, even there) until I dismiss the notification on the screen about the missed call.

Am I missing some settings about this normal notification LED? Is this feature not implemented yet? This is somewhat of a showstopper for using the device as a phone, especially since checking for missed calls/texts involves opening the clamshell. I hoped that this standard notification feature is present in _addition_ to the central group of LEDs that one can configure to specific callers, for example. Any ideas?

PS: I'd love to start using the Gemini with a Google-free LineageOS to begin with, but a fully working image seems some way off right now (like, with phone functionality).

Are there people out there with working display rotation? Not that I really intend to run the device much in portrait mode, but I do wonder about the sensor setup.

I do know that the compass is disabled in the firmware because Planet Computers did not get the compensation for the lid magnets working (I still would like to see if one can re-enable it, though, as you should be able to compensate for any static magnetic field, however complex the field lines flow), but it looks to me that people do have display rotation possibly working. When looking into SatStat, I see no information for compass (as we know) and also no information for orientation.

But I do see a working accelerometer that nicely indicates the direction of gravity when I am not spinning around the device. Should there be orientation information extracted out of that and is anyone getting screen rotation with the stock Android OS? I did toggle that setting for fixed/rotating display in the drop-down settings back and forth, nothing.
