How do I use my Samsung Galaxy device as a torch?
The location of the torch or flashlight function on your device will depend on the operating system your device is using. Most Samsung phones allow you to to quickly access and turn on the torch from your quick settings, but if this is not available you can also add the torch as a widget.
For devices running Android Ice Cream Sandwich and lower you will need to add a widget.
For devices running Android Jelly Bean and higher you can use your quick settings.

Please note: if the Torch option is not displayed immediately, swipe left to see more quick settings
