XZ2 awful dim flashligh!

Guys! I have just very dissapointed with the brightness of the flashlight in my XZ2!

Seriously my wife Samsung J7 shines brighter three times than my XZ2!

I spent more than an hour to test ~20 different apps which do the same - the flashlite is dim.

Sony, you selling the phone with the price $740 and its flashligh is so dim so I almost can't see anything before my legs!

Do not say me about the protection of the phone or battery drain. I am the owner of the phone - so give me the possibility to setup the flashlight brightness. I can use it for 5-7 minutes with my child but I do really need the bright light from it and not that ghastly and terrible light I have now.
I found reports from people who have Z2 models, so looks like noone from Sony marketing team did not even think of solving this elementary problem. Shame on you!

Now you limit the light of my flashlight, tomorrow you'll decide that I need to call only 15 minutes per day and make a limit in phone (because scientists say it's safe), what shall we wait from you the next time?

So will you fix this issue or should I procceed to think bad about Sony company?

I understand that you want control on the flashlight/camera flash, I'll escalate this, but you should send your feedback to Sony directly, perhaps avoid the sarcasm when you do, keep in mind that this is a global user based forum.

Uh... sorry. I though it's an official support from Sony, isn't it?
