    I bought my Note 5 a year ago. A couple of days ago, I noticed a red light flashing for a second on the back of the phone, just below the flash. It seems to happen when I am in a dark place and it happens when I press the home key to unlock the phone.

    This is probably not a problem, but I have never noticed it before. My guess is that is something to do with the flash and the camera.

    Any help, will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Not sure what that could be. I just tried on my N5, and I didn't see a red light. What carrier and build number do you have?

    Some cameras have a red light to help the cam set flash or focus I think. Also, aren't heart rate monitors red?

    I have got the "C" version.
    It is the heart rate light that is flashing, it just did it again.
    A quick press on the home key, in low light seems to activate it.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Maybe a red eye reduction light?

    I have a galaxy note 8. When I am using my front facing camera (selfie camera) a little red light appears when anything gets within a cm of it. I believe it is some type of sensor. Hope this helps

    Its a "button" for taking selfies. If you "tap" the flash in selfie mode it takes a photo :-) (worked it out accidently)
