You may never know when a flashlight may come in handy. There may be a power outage, for example, and you need your phone to find your way around. The flashlight is a very useful feature for our smartphones. It might not be as bright as the powerful LEDs we use now but in cases of emergency where ordinary light is needed, this helps to get the job done.
A few years ago, you would need to install an app to be able to turn the LED flashlight ON but now, you do not need to at all. This is so because most Android devices now have a built-in widget which can be used to turn the flashlight ON. This widget can be added to the home screen.
In this guide, we will show you how to use the flashlight on LG G7with its built-in widget and be able to gain quick access to the flashlight feature on your device.
