Flashlight

Some phones include a dedicated small, bright white LED that functions as a flashlight.

In some camera phones with this feature, the LED light also does double-duty as a camera flash. However, not all camera phones with a flash allow flashlight (non-camera-related) use, and not all camera phones with a flashlight include camera flash capability.

If this "flashlight" feature is indicated for a phone on this site, that means the LED flashlight can be used independently of the camera functions.
