will using my led flash as a flashlight burn it out quicker?
Yes LEDs have a long life cycle, but seeing as how it's meant for flash and camera use only, I wouldn't recommend using it too often.
I just tried in a well lit room and it doesn't light up as brightly as I thought it would. I'll try a dark place some other time, but it makes a good emergency flashlight.
well the one that uses your led flash is called droidlight and the one that uses your screen is called color flashlight, but those are the two that i have, there are probably different ones out there
I am amazed that people say the light isn't that bright...I guess it isn't compared to the camera flash? I'll be honest I haven't looked at the flash during the camera shot for a while but when that LED comes on in the flashlight apps, if you are on the other end, it is glaring and will almost blind you. Not sure how much brighter it could be without doing damage to someone on the other end. heh
