    On my old Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung included a built-in flashlight widget. It works almost instantaneously.(i.e. the LED light on the back turns on immediately as soon as I touch the widget icon)

    Samsung doesn't include this widget for the Note 5, so I tried over 17 different flashlight apps that have on/off widgets. NONE of them turn the LED light on INSTANTANEOUSLY like the Samsung one on the old S5. They all have a 1/2-second to 1-second delay from the moment my finger touches the flashlight widget.

    If anyone knows of a flashlight widget that can turn the LED light on INSTANTANEOUSLY, please let me know.

    Thanks for your help!

    Thanks! I'm too new to the phone and hasn't discovered that yet... but I still want a widget on the home screen... guess's there's no way to move the switch from the drop-down menu to the home screen...

    (or better yet, have it on the lock screen! )

    I have mine located in the same place on menu bar. I used to always use a widget, it really doesn't take long to get used to it being there.

    I just pulled out my antique Samsung Galaxy Nexus from my closet. It still has the flashlight switch on the lock screen... but that app/widget requires root, which isn't possible on the Note 5. oh well, guess I'll just have to get used to it.

    My Note 4 has that widget, but not on the lockscreen. Lockscreen widgets and icons are long gone for a while now.

    You could try Power Toggles. You can create a widget on your home screen and/or set the toggle in the notifications shade and your lock screen.

    These are my lock screen switches using Power Toggles.
    Attached Thumbnails is there a flashlight widget that will turn on the LED light instantaneously like on the old S5?-11746.jpg

    In Power Toggles select the switches you want in Notification - Customize - add toggle. You need to have notifications enabled in your lock screen for this to work, of course.
