    After your suggestion I looked this one up and installed it. Zero spyware, adware or anything else. Doesn't require a gazillion permissions that aren't needed and turns on and off. Simple and effective.

    Tesla LED works great. No ads and it there's a holo themed widget.

    I'd third Power Toggles. Especially coming from Samsung phones, it gives you that top bar in notifications, and you can put whatever else you want on there.

    On my Nexus 5, running stock 4.4.2 (build KOT49H, the latest), the flashlight toggle in Power Toggles seems to mess up the phone. The camera is inaccessible after the toggle is used once, and a phone reboot doesn't fix it. The mm-qcamera-daemon process seems to be locked, and consuming insane amounts of CPU and battery. I had to completely uninstall the app to get my camera back.

    AVOID Power Toggles until they fix this!

    Welcome to Android Central! I have Power Toggles on my N5 running 4.4.2, and I don't have that problem, so it may not necessarily be a direct problem with Power Toggles. Maybe it's conflicting with some other app you've installed? Do you have any other apps that can access the camera or the flash, like a 3rd party camera app? I think the only apps I have that can also access the camera are banking apps like B of A.

    It requires so many permissions because it's so versatile, with dozens of possible toggles. If you just need a flashlight widget, I agree, just get a dedicated flashlight widget. But Power Toggles offers a ton of functionality, so it's still worth a look!
