Torch "gesture"

Community Hero

Hi HMD/Nokia team!


Please include a configurable "gesture" to turn on the LED torch function in future software updates.


New Nokia phones already allow the use of double-tap on power button to activate the camera and double tap on screen to wake the phone. I currently use an app "Torchie" to give my phone the ability to turn on the torch using the volume buttons when the screen is locked. Other manufacturers include similar "gestures" to turn on the torch (or activate the camera), e.g. Oneplus and Motorola/Lenovo.


Nokia used to lead the world in gesture and swipe interfaces and unfortunately the current Android interface is a step backwards from the Lumia models (I know that was a different company). These functions are not difficult to implement, please add them in the next software update.


Thanks :)
