One very common use of a smartphone is the presence of a flashlight app. Although these days, most smartphones are available with an already-installed flashlight program that is available on the home page itself or when you simply swipe down the screen, some phones will, however, require you to manually download a good flashlight app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

Either way, the availability of a good flashlight is always handy on your phone. Be it opening the door to your house in the night or searching for something in a dark room, flashlights are always a handy tool.

Here are 3 simple tips that will share some information on how you can better use a flashlight on your phone.

  1. The flashlights on your phone work by continuously keeping the rear camera flash ON until you turn off the flashlight or if the battery dies out, whichever happens first. Using a flashlight on your phone is an easy task, in fact, a child’s play. Simply select the flashlight option to turn on the light and click the icon again to turn it off.
  2. Some flashlights allow you to adjust the strength of the brightness that gets emitted from your phone’s flashlight. Usually, there are either two or three intensity adjustment options. One is from high intensity to low intensity and the other is from high to medium and then finally to low brightness. Hence, good quality headlamps are important to enjoy this feature.
  3. As mentioned previously, the flashlight remains ON as long as you want it or as long as the phone’s battery is available. Therefore, if you intend to use your flashlight for a longer period of time, then it is recommended that you switch over to the low-intensity mode to save up on battery. This is because higher the flash intensity more will be the battery usage.
