OK, so Microsoft did something interesting when it released Windows 10 Mobile Build 10536. The new update brings only a few features and some bug fixes, but above all, the new is flashlight feature is probably the most interesting.

The new feature is so simple and basic that users do not need to download a Flashlight application from the store. This is nothing but good news, because the flashlight applications available in the Windows store are usually intense on the battery and pretty ugly to look at.

New flashlight feature in Windows 10 Mobile

April 2021 Update:

We now recommend using this tool for your error. Additionally, this tool fixes common computer errors, protects you against file loss, malware, hardware failures and optimizes your PC for maximum performance. You can fix your PC problems quickly and prevent others from happening with this software:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


With this new feature from Microsoft, there is no ugly user interface to see. The only drawback we’ve seen is that some flashlight applications have some cool features, but for us it’s not that important if users just want to throw a light in the dark when an alien shows up.

We will examine some of the flashlight applications that will be affected by this step. Keep in mind that many of these applications have the same name, which is pretty lame if you ask us.


This flashlight uses LED flash material to illuminate the darkness in your life. If your phone has no LED flash, no problem, the application supports white screen. It differs from what Microsoft did with the introduction of the compass and stroboscope. There is even an emergency SOS option.

Flashlight (Asleroid)


Almost identical to Flashlight application above. The big difference is that it does not have the stroboscope function and supports shopping in the application. Yeah, these guys use flashlights to make money. I have to thank Microsoft for cooking the feature in Windows 10 Mobile.

Smalltech Flashlight

Does all of the above, but no support for SOS and strobe. The particularity of this application is the annoying pop-up advertising. These guys must have lost their minds; who makes that much money with a flashlight?

Flashlight (Tony Sakariya)

Our final selection of the day does everything others can do, including local shopping. No advertising and that’s good, but we’re still not sold to buy in a flashlight application, come on.

Overall, we are pleased that Microsoft has chosen to make the flashlight function a central part of Windows 10 Mobile. There is a good chance that all these flashlight applications will come to a terrible end, and we cannot wait.
