    Hello everyone. Hope everyone is well and keeping safe.

    So getting straight to the point. I have a Oneplus 8 and I absolutely love it, but there's something which is irritating me.

    On grey/blue backgrounds, when the screen is idle for a few seconds, the screen brightness dims a little.

    I'm coming from the OnePlus 7 and have not faced this issue.

    I can't put to words exactly what I want to say. Please refer to the link and hopefully it should be self explanatory.

    Edit 1) This doesn't always happen. It's quite irregular.

    Edit 2) Switching from 90Hz to 60hz and then back to 90Hz does fix the “issue” - will check how long it lasts.

    Edit 3) I was contacted by the team to reproduce the issue and send back logs, but I have not been able to reproduce the issue since I switched from 90Hz to 60hz and then back to 90Hz.

    yes I know exactly what you mean . it's been driving me crazy too . the brightness changes by itself on grey backgrounds like Gmail . I can see it changing Brightness by itself without auto brightness enabled . I have two OnePlus 8 phones and they both do it

    let's see if @SoniaB can be useful for once and forward this to the actual dev team . Not some cardboard police woman she usually is

    I have forwarded this as feedback to admin.

    A moderator needs to ensure that everyone follows forum rules.
    If you have an issue with how I moderated a post of yours then as per the rules, you should contact me direct.
    However, since you chose to be so public about this, calling anyone on the forum an "idiot" will not be tolerated. If someone had referred to you in that manner then you would be looking at me to be "useful" and the "cardboard police woman" then too.

    You were kindly advised to follow forum rules. I ask that you again adhere to them.

    This problem still isn't fixed.
    You can make the issue reappear by rebooting the phone.

    Can Oneplus please fix this?

    Yeah, i am facing the same issue. noticed it mostly with apps having grey background, such as Gmail, play store, inshorts etc. the colour turns from grey to almost black. Since this issue hasn't been fixed since May and we have had multiple updates rollout i request @SoniaB to please escalate this.

    It also looks like the screen resolution is being affected too. Closest comparison is like using 800 x 600 resolution option on a monitor supporting 1920 X 1080. Big blotchy and ugly.

    It was shocking for me the 1st time it happened. I had to make sure my display settings didn't get messed up.

    Only happens to me in low lighting and adaptive lighting goes to lowest point. Most noticable with test heavy app like news.

    Also, adaptive lighting flickers to the brightest in dark setting quite often. Almost blinds you.
