This is a great question! We want to ensure that your device is functioning properly, and the Avant is a great device! We'll want to get the most accurate information for you. In order to do so, we can contact our content owner for Samsung products and then do a follow up with you here. I have set the follow up, but I will say right now (if this helps) that you mentioned there were 2 circles in your top right corner. The Galaxy S 5 has 3: 2 for the camera and 1 for the status lights, so it is possible this may be missing that option, but we will reach out and follow up with you. Thanks!
Thanks for your reply! Although I liked the feel of the Avant, I decided
to exchange it for a Galaxy. From what several in store reps told me, the
status light feature is not included in the Avant, unfortunately. Perhaps
an idea for the Avant part deux

As mentioned, we wanted to follow up with you today. We have confirmed that there are no status lights on the Avant. I am happy to hear you were able to exchange the device for a Galaxy that presents those status lights you've become accustomed to! I also use a Galaxy myself, so I know how convenient those are. Enjoy your Galaxy device and let us know if you have any further questions or concerns!
