Helpful but not for my phone I have the HTC DNA. It uses my camera flash located on the back of me phone to strobe, but my phone back is obscured by my carrying belt. Also the tempo of the flash was the same on every setting. If I had a different model phone perhaps this would be more helpful/visible.
