I appreciate the Android camera of Samsung Galaxy S7 because it is equipped with a new advanced sensor for catching details. However, we know that light, the part and parcel of photography, contributes most to a successful work. So how can we take perfect Android photos in the dark without the low-light camera? The answer is to improve the light of the object. Besides turning on auto night detection, we can enable flash on any Android phone.

Some users may feel confused about flashlight which has two definitions: the flash feature in Camera app and flashlight function to light up the way. With these two cases, this post will direct you to enable them with ease.
