    When I bought phone it came with Android Pie, and adaptive brightness of screen was to aggressive becoming to dark in lower light. After few updates, maybe 3 it finally worked properly. But, then came Android 10 update, and it again become to aggressive on low light, so that I have to correct it manually every time. It happening also on my wifes OP 8, so it is probably general issue. Please work it out, I know you can do it, cause it was done before. Thanx

    when you bought your phone, there was Auto Brightness and when you updated to 10 its now Adaptive Brightness. teach your device to adapt at different brightness until it learns, problem solved. people still think auto and adaptive are same thing!!

    How many times I should manually rectify brightness so that phone learn my preference? Also, I know that AI is learning since first day, or should learn, and also tried before to teach it. But before update solve that " learning ai", I couldn't . Hope you are right, and I will keep teaching it untill it accept my preference

    it depends, if you frequently use your device from in many different lighting scenarios then it may take more time. you can reset the brightness behavior previously learnt by the device and start over.

    Good luck, it doesn't work. I've been struggling with this since 10 was released and no amount of training and resetting will fix it or train it to work properly. OnePlus is lowering light to much, as a way to keep battery numbers up, just as they are killing apps to soon.

    Works fine on my 6T. Light changes all the time, so the adaptive Brightness feature will raise and lower brightness as and when necessary, if I find it went a litlle high or low, I merely raised it manually and it will be fine from their on, in fact I rarely have to do that anymore.

    On op6 its stark opposite. It never learns low & high light adaptation. Almost 80% times I hv to adjust brightness intensity especially in low light.

    After reading all this posts, I can just confirm my first observation. Last Android Pie finally corrected this problem for me, in low light it wasn't to dark for me to use comfortable my phone. Then Android 10 came, and we got back old problem. I'm 100% sure of this. So, it is software issue, that can be fixed

    I'm sure OP is well informed about this issue, cause year ago I read this similar conversation, and then they rectified it, as I wrote previous. But then after Android 10 this problem came back again. my wife useing OP 8, and have same problem. Hope they will do something about it

    I do believe that when a new version of Android comes out, many features from previous versions don't get coded to be included if they involve additional coding beyond the norm.

    However, with each version of Android many of the unique OnePlus features get included, those that don't tend to be left behind. And some have to be reincluded as time progresses.

    However then Android 11 comes along and includes other coded features, so it's a bit of a merry-go-round. Then others get left behind.

    This is the nature of Android, as it progresses, OnePlus, then have to find newer features to include.

    But in fairness, OnePlus features they have built themselves have forced the progression of Android. And as OP features become the standard, it just goes to show how much at the forefront they are with their coders and developers.

    That's a rarity these days.

    Even Samsung and other big players are being left in OnePlus wake on their ideas and features front, as so many have been implemented into stock Android.

    Just as a point of comparison, I've recently been using my pixel 3XL again to try android 11. Using it again for the last 4 weeks, one of the first things that I noticed, was I'd forgotten how good the adaptive brightness was on my 6t. Yes it's not perfect, but compared to my pixel it works like a dream.

    I would point out though that since running the android 11 beta one my pixel, there has been an improvement in the adaptive brightness, so perhaps there's hope there that Oneplus will also introduce improvements to the feature once android 11 success in the 6 series next year.
