Auto Brightness Bug? Oxygen 11

    I have had issues with Auto Brightness from the time I bought this device last year. I put up with it thinking Oxygen 11 would fix the issue but apparently that hasn't happened.

    Anybody who has Auto Brightness issue where the display is either dark or way too bright? Most of the time I don't even see Auto Brightness change when lighting changes happen.

    Is this is a hardware issue? I doubt if this is software related because I had the same issue in Android 10 as well.

    On OS10 it didn't work well for me, but it definitely improved with OS11. It's still not working as it should, but it does a better job for me than it does for you by the sounds of it. You might want to report it via the feedback tool. Could be because of the OS11 update though, given there's many things wrong with it.

    I was beginning to think it was an overactive sensor or something. It changes, sometimes seemingly random, on me all the time. It even acted this way on LOS and AOSiP.
    Then again, I have the 5G Mclaren edition. It's finicky

    I have a similar problem with auto-brightness on Android 11. It's really frustrating when brightness changes very quickly itself without any reason. Something went wrong.

    I have also auto-brightness -issue on 11.0.11-version and OnePlus 7 phone.

    I have bicycled few times and found something nice to take pictures with my phone, but it has been impossible because of SO DARK screen. Camera won't show anything and maybe biggest issue is that I cannot see PIN code buttons or fingerprint isn't accepted!!?

    But when I manage to go somewhere shadow place, abrakadabra: phone is almost normal and I have access to it again! Almost.. because I may found that lamp is ON and all data comms are OFF. Hey OnePlus engineer: what's up?!
