6 Useful Tips For Your Samsung Galaxy Flashlight

A flashlight is a handy tool on smartphones. You may think there’s just one setting to control the flashlight, but you can change the Samsung phone flashlight brightness, use the SOS flashlight, set the flashlight for notifications, and more. This guide highlights the best Samsung flashlight settings and tips to use it like a pro.

Also helpful: whether you have a Samsung phone or a Pixel, you can easily turn your Android flashlight on and off.

1. Turn the Samsung Flashlight On or Off

From Quick Settings Panel

The default way to enable or disable the flashlight on Samsung Galaxy phones is from the Quick Settings panel. Swipe down twice from the top edge of your phone and tap on the Torch tile to turn on the flashlight. Tap on the same tile again to turn off the flashlight.

Note: if you don’t see the Torch button, go to the last screen of Quick Panel, tap on the + button, then enable Torch.

From Side Power Button

If you use the flashlight frequently on your Samsung Galaxy phone, you can assign it to the double-press functionality of the Side or Power button.

Go to Settings -> Advanced features -> Side button. Enable the toggle next to Double press.

Select Open app, and tap on the Gear icon next to Open app. Choose Torch from the list. When you enable the flashlight, press the Power button twice, and press the button twice again to turn it off.

Tap the left or right shortcut on the lock screen you wish to assign the torch functionality. Select Torch and press Done to save the changes.

4. Use Bixby or Google Assistant to Control Flashlight

  • “Turn on flashlight”
  • “Turn on torch”
  • “Turn off flashlight”
  • “Turn off torch”

5. Set Flashlight for Incoming Calls and Notifications

Another attractive Samsung flashlight setting is making your phone’s flashlight light up for incoming calls or notifications. To enable this feature, go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Advanced settings -> Flash notification.

6. Create a Routine for Flashlight

Go to Settings -> Modes and Routines, and tap on the Routines tab.

Samsung Routines
