Ae/af lock not turning on the flashlight to focus

While taking pictures with flash enabled, My old phone (note5) would turn the flashlight on to help it focus if i held the screen and turned on auto focus lock. My new phone (note10+) does not do this. Auto focus lock works, and the flash works, but the flash wont turn on to help the auto focus lock focus before i take the shot. This makes taking photos in the dark almost impossible. Is this a defect or is this a removed feature? Anyone else have this?

This might be a removed feature since night mode is now an option. Have you tried taking pictures with that mode?

Re: Ae/af lock not turning on the flashlight to focus

Thanks for the reply. I have tried night mode but its not comparable for holding lock and having the flash come on to help focus in poor lit areas. (i used this feature alot for taking pictures in crawl spaces or attics) I have had my phone for less then a month now and would like to exchange it if it's a defect so I'm wondering if everyone's note ten that is missing this feature or if i have a defected device.
