Use Your XT720 Milestone’s Red Eye Prevention LED as a Flashlight!

So, you come from a different device into the world of the Milestone XT720 and you find out that you cannot annoy your friends with the flashlight app that you are so used to using for this. As it turns out, because the type of flash in the XT720 is a Xenon lamp flash, the lamp itself works differently than other regular LED flash lamps found in other devices. Luckily, XDA member easye420 has come up with a solution for this short coming. LightXT, as its name suggests, is a flashlight application that will work with the XT720’s Xenon lamp to give you flashlight capabilities. Very few, if any, apps out there will allow you to do this with this device (or any other device equipped with such technology). So, now you can go back to that dark stairwell with the confidence that you will not trip on some unseen cable.

Please leave some feedback for the dev as this app is in beta stage and he is currently looking for bugs.

Alright guys here it is. LightXT its pretty self explanatory. This does require you to be rooted. This is V.1 so there might be bugs but I haven’t found any so you should be fine. This has only been tested on US XT720 running Khalpowers miui themed V3 but technically it should work on all models of this phone with the auto focus led.

You can find more information in the application thread.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well.
