Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: ROG Phone 5
  2. Firmware Version: WW-31.0810.1226.57
  3. Rooted or not: Not
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: When charging
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): <I am not sure.>



Recently, I have bought ROG Phone 5 and have successfully upgraded to Android 12 (version: WW-31.0810.1226.57). Is it normal that:

(1) The LED indicator (not that one on the rear of the phone) does not blink when the phone is in charge and a notification (e.g., WhatsApp message) arrives?

(2) The system will automatically turn off the option "Blink light" (In Settings → Apps & notifications → General) after a user manually turned it on?

Thank you.


  • 1) The charging LED (solid red), 100% charging (solid green) only flashes if the device is in standby when a notification arrives. If it is charging with the screen on, the LED is not used (unfortunately, in a gaming session, being able to flash the LED on a call or a priority message would be a real plus)

    2) I'm still on 11 and this option does not exist but Android 12 users have already reported that custom settings revert to default on restart of the device

  • This is a known UI error that is being fixed in a future update. Thanks for reaching out.
