One of our favourite features baked into Tizen is the facility to change the intensity of the flashlight, and now Samsung’s finally brought that option to its flagship Android-powered smartphones, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, with its long-awaited Nougat update.

Fortunately, taking advantage of the feature couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is pull down from the top of your display to toggle the Quick Settings options, then tap on the text entitled Flashlight/Torch (you must tap on the text instead of the icon). A slider with five different intensities will appear. Simply select the one you require. That’s all there is to it.

As always, if you happen to run into any issues along the way, do be sure to let us know in the comments section below, and we’ll do our very best to get you back on track. Alternatively, you can reach out to us over on Facebook and Twitter, but we can’t promise you an as speedy a response time over on those platforms.

Update: As our readers have pointed out, this was already possible on the Galaxy S7 edge through the Tasks edge panel. But not everyone uses the edge functionality (or has the S7 edge), so it is great to see torch/flashlight intensity can now be changed through the quick toggles.
