I will never understand why they just turned the light on like a torch, instead of when you take a photo, or tucked the option away. No other Xperia phone does it like this, from the mini models with its interface to the arc, neo, pro, ray, active etc.
Download the xPeria Flashlight widget. U still have to click it on, but it a lot quicker with the widget.
Every camera phone flash is horrible anyways.
