Use the flashlight on your Galaxy phone
Not too long ago, there was a time when people needed actual flashlights during a power outage. Nowadays, you can use your phone as a handy, but powerful flashlight.
Use the flashlight
The flashlight feature uses the phone's camera LED as a bright light that can illuminate the area around you.
To use the flashlight, open the Quick Settings panel by swiping down from the top of the screen using two fingers. Next, tap the Flashlight icon to turn the light on or off.
Depending on the situation, you may need brighter or dimmer lights. Thankfully, your Galaxy phone can adjust for that too.
Open the Quick Settings panel by swiping down from the top of the screen using two fingers. Tap the word Flashlight (the text right below the icon). Turn on the flashlight by tapping the switch, and then move the slider to change the brightness level.
Note: The brightness slider will be grayed out if you don't turn on the flashlight first.
