Flashlight

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

In most phones, the LED light also does double-duty as a flash for the camera. However, not all camera phones with a flash allow flashlight (non-camera-related) use.

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.
