Windows Phone Button Acts as a Charging Indicator on the Lumia 925

8737103497_0d44a6d6b8_zOur buddy CJ over at UnleashThePhones is reporting that the Windows Phone 8 logo/button on the Lumia 925 will active as a breathing/charging indicator when the phone is juicing up. Till now no Lumias gave any real indication of this (only the HTC 8X had a notification light for that sole purpose), so it’s definitely a nice addition.

 Thankfully, with the new Nokia Lumia 925, that is no longer an issue, as the Windows Phone ‘Start’ button now acts as a battery indicator to let you know the phone is charging, right from the second you plug it in.

Unfortunately for some reason the windows Phone light will only notify you of charging if the battery is completely drained and the phone is off (meaning it’s only useful when you’re charging a dead phone, as a sort of “alert” to let you know that it’s actually charging.

Now what I really want to see is a true notification light, which although it might become redundant with the arrival of an always on screen is still a pretty nifty feature (unless it annoys with a blinding light every two seconds like the Z10).
