Despite being one of the most impressive smartphones on the market, the Galaxy S7 also doubles as an extremely powerful flashlight. You’re probably thinking I’m crazy for saying that, but hear me out. How many times have you been out at night, dropped something and can’t seem to find it? Or you’ve dropped something behind the seat of your car, but the measly center light isn’t bright enough for you to find it? Countless times, huh? I’m the same.
A little over two week’s ago, I was getting out of my car when my wallet slipped off my lap and into the gap between the seat and the door. I couldn’t seem to find it, but then I remembered that my phone, the Galaxy S7 edge, has a dual flash. After searching around the device, I found the torch option and, lo and behold; I found my wallet. I was actually stunned by the strength of the light, and have been playing around with it ever since.
Here’s how you enable it:
- Swipe down from the top of your device with two fingers to toggle the Quick Toggles bar in the notification panel.
- Slide your finger across the icons to the left until you discover an option entitled Torch.
- Tap the icon. You will now notice the flash on your handset power up. When you’d like to turn it off, simply press the little emblem again.
