Z5P - Flash Icon shows and sometimes doesn't

There is a bug where when ever I need the Flashlight it disappeared! I go in quick settings and try to added it, even thought it's already added, and won't show. I either have to restart or try it later and it's there. Someone else says it's common problem/bug with the Z5P.

 

I heard there is a new smart phone (I think a Chinese manufacturer) that notices if the light sensor dark, or put your finger over the sensor, the Flashlight icon is available on your lock screen. That would be nice touch!

 

Sincerely,

The first issue has been reported before, use the search bar and you will find the thread/post

 

as for the second suggestion

 

You have an android device, embrace the playstore

Regarding embracing the store, I really think it's a developmental thing making the small things a little bit better.

 

I guess the best alternative is "Okay Google, turn on flashlight" it those known glitchy siutations.

Not at all... Always happends when I need it the most too! Even the Google comand can't circumvent it. Nor pulling out the camera app.
