    Have you tried to scroll down then over and see if it's on the second screen? Mine is still there

    Yup, it's still there...on the second page. You can re-arrange them, though, but now the notification shade is a little different on Nougat.

    There are so many flashlight apps out there, its probably better to just get one instead of messing with all that.

    I use powerlight, and its useful to have the shortcut on my main screen.

    Why run an extra app when you can just move the button?

    That's horrible advice. Messing with all that? Are you one of those people that doesn't customize anything? Set up your quick toggles the way you want. Still quicker and far better than having to add an app for a built-in function.

    You can also add it to the edge menus, and that will give you an 'extra' with brightness level control and, for some reason, a ruler.

    As for the 3rd party app advice, it's not terrible... just, at least in this case for something this basic, maybe not ideal. Unless the 3rd party app adds any significant functionality (Morse code, SOS signals, etc.) then adding an extra app that will take extra resources might not be the best course of action hehe.

    Why would you tell someone to go through all the steps to download an app that does something already built into the phone? Way easier to drag the flashlight icon back to where you want.

    People,

    Whereas I don't agree with his advice either, coachpelkey has the right to vice his opinion here just like the rest of us. It's up to the OP to decide which advice he/she decides to take. All opinions are welcomed here whether we agree with them or not. Thank you coachpelkey for sharing yours!
