    agree+1. the auto adjust brightness is way too low in every circumstance. it's amoled, low brightness can cause eye strain

    If I remember right, when Phonearena did a review on the OP6, they showed that the max nits for the screen was surprisingly low. That would be why it has bad outdoor visibility.

    oneplus uses amoled technology. this is different from the IPS panel. if you're hitting Samsung's amoled panel properties, take note of the lifetime of this technology at the expense of brightness. the higher the brightness the shorter the life.

    It's too much to say that. I come from a Note 8 which is one of the best in screen brightness under direct sunlight. Oneplus 6 is not as good only under direct sunlight but it's still acceptable. Could be better but you can't have it all. Considering all the features and performance it is the best phone at this price and much better in many useful areas than a much more expensive phone

    First, ordering "do something" here is useless because this is a customer community and you're not talking to OnePlus.

    Other than that, the OP6 samsung panel is capable of becoming a lot brighter under the sun.

    Samsung does in in its flagships, when it is detected you're under the sun it triggers HBM (high brightness mode) and it also modifies the contrast for better visibility overall.

    If you're rooted, you can activate HBM mode with an app on the play store that is called just like that. It doesn't require root on previous OnePlus generations but it does on the OP6 on some reason.

    And no, unless you spend 10 hours daily under the sun in HBM mode, nothing is gonna happen to the AMOLED display in the long run. If you're under the sun using the phone 10 hours more likely the battery will be the first component to fail because of too much heat plus they could just put a time limit of a few minutes at a time for HBM. The OnePlus team was just lazy to add this option to OxygenOS sorry, they can't bring a cloud to you as someone else pointed but they could add HBM to their ROMs, you're free to submit a ticket to customer support but most likely, they won't add it.
