Nokia E7 and C7: The Torch Feature Is Back!

Remember the Nokia N93? It was a pretty advanced phone in its era, but, I specially remember it because of the awesome flashlight feature. You just pressed a button and the LED Flash lighted your way, showed you your lost keys, and let you bug your friends by pointing the flash to their faces.

This awesome feature is back! And it is better integrated this time as there is no dedicated flashlight button, yet it works better than if it there was one. By holding the unlock key on the Nokia E7 or the Nokia C7, the flash will turn on. You can either hold to it for the light to remain on, or you can hold it shortly and the flashlight will remain on for a couple of seconds before automatically going off. This feature is a small one, but little things like this is what makes a device great. We are already waiting for the E7 and C7 to start shipping! (for those asking whether the N8 has this feature, just remember the N8 has a Xenon flash, so it can’t remain ON)

      N8 should have both Xenon and LED like SE being doing long ago.

    I really miss the torch feature. The majority of the smartphones that I’ve had over the past few years neglect to build in this feature.
