Hi,

I have S22 Ultra OneUI 5.1 Android 13

Is it possible to get the camera to use 'torch mode' for the camera flash?

My other Xiaomi phones have the option to switch the camera flash to 'torch mode' so then the flash light comes on and stays on like a torch.

It is very useful when trying to photograph details in dark environments

The S22 only shows modes - on/off/auto

So then you cannot see what you are taking a photo of in dark environments

Thanks

Thanks userZ

I have found an even easier workaround...

You can turn on the torch first then start the camera and it works...!

Doh!

I should have thought of trying that first

Sadly no. Samsung and Xiaomi are two different Phone creators meaning that not all features from one will be on the other.

Thanks

Is there a process for escalating enhancement requests with Samsung to request they add a feature to the phone?

This would be a pretty easy one.

Please create a post yourself. Commenting on posts with your questions won't do anything.

For now, in camera app, swipe to video mode and change flash setting to always on. This will allow flashlight to stay on so you can see and set the composition you want. Then swipe to photo mode and take a picture.

It's very inconvenient so let's hope Samsung improving it.
