Here is how you can turn off the flash in the camera:
- Open the Camera application.
- Tap on the Flash option located at the extreme top left side of the screen. It is represented by a bolt sign.
- If you select Auto Flash, then the flash will automatically be enabled when the lightning is either low or non-existent.
- Select the Off option if you do not want to use flash while taking pictures and videos.
- To avoid red eye, you can ask the image’s subject to shift their gaze. Instead of looking directly at the lens, they can look sideward.
