Is there a way to make the light since brighter?

The first question to ask is: is it safe. If the light brightness is rather low, there may be a good reason...

I don't necessarily believe that.

This was an assumption. Better to be prudent...

Passing high amount of current through led for a very long time can cause damage, thats why only the last pulse of flash in photo capturing is the brightest, as it is for only a short amount of time (even less than a second)
if you can figure out how much current the LED can endure (through datasheet), you can increase the brightness of the LED by increasing the current value "in some system file" but be careful not to exceed the threshold value, or the LED will confirm get damaged(sorry i dont know exact file, maybe google can help?)
still, i cant 100% guarantee the LED will be safe for custom values, but when i used xperia U, one guy made a "LUXEN LED brightness increasing mod" which i still use even now on my xpU and my LED is much brighter and not damaged
Its just, if you are gonna try it, you should have idea of basic electrical engineering so you can read the datasheet easily and understand all the "dangers" involved, if any..

i know this thread is abit older but...
some days ago i switches from z1 to z2 and i can remember the same "problem" of the z1. there was a mod that allowed you to push the current of the led in "torch-mod" at the same level as "camera flash". i used it for a really long time and noticed no damage to the led. but this mod is not working for the z2.
i really wish a brighter led -.-
(and please stop "it can destroy bla bla bla" ppl who are using this kind of modifications should know about the risk. and if they dont... well... not your problem)

I find the one minute timetime is very useful, thanks for the app.
