Very weak torch XZ1 compact

Hello, I've just bought XZ1 compact, but I am very disappointed about led torch. I found some answers like:

"to prevent battery drain..." but this is not an answer how to fix this problem. If I compare my XZ1 compact with my wife's XA1, the brightness is about 1:10 (ZX1c:XA1). So please don't tell me that it is because of battery drain or overheating. Otherwise you would have done the same for all phones.

I would expect much stronger torch for example for shooting very slow motion video.

So please, tell me, how to fix it without rooting the phone or when will you update the software to fix this issue.

I don't think it's possible,  you could test different torch apps, but do send your feedback/request to Sony directly as this is a user based forum >>> Local support

Re: Very weak torch XZ1 compact

Same problem for many other Sony models Z3C XC XZ1C. You can't even make a video using that intensity of led. You can't use it as a flashlight. Xperia U was the last model I had with powerful led. Other brands don't have this issue.
