    Screen brightness thread, yay!

    In my experience the automatic (adaptive) brightness is always set pretty low, in full sunlight as well as in darker interiors. Disabling it and setting the brightness manually I'm usually able to achieve desired brightness, but it's inconvenient.

    I noticed that some users actually prefer darker screens, but how cool would it be to be able to set auto brightness offset, right?

    These are good additions to the problem description and I can confirm I see the exact same behaviour.
    It happens on 60 and 90Hz and not in all apps.

    It is interesting to see that some apps are not affected. I can confirm that it does not happen in the lock and home screens or the app drawer and now that you mention it, I also don't see it happen in Play Store, Assistant, Gmail and Google Photos.
    But in Google News, Chrome and Youtube it does dim after 3 seconds, so it is not even the same behaviour in all Google apps or in preinstalled apps.

    So far in all other apps I have tried it seems to reduce the brightness automatically, even the phone dialer.
    That includes all the apps in your list.

    I can't see a pattern here yet, but maybe if other users can confirm it will help the devs to see if the apps it does happen in may have other privileges or settings.

    However, if you jump apps, i.e. community to chrome, chrome to settings, settings to homescreen, gmail to settings, etc. You can see the brightness change after 2-3 sec. Keep your brightness above 45% and check for yourself.
    For me, there's no brightness fluctuation if my brightness is below 40-45%

    Correct, it goes up again after you leave the app or go to an unaffected app. That was said before.
    That is mostly what makes it so annoying.

    It is a good point that it is not happening below about 40% brightness (or 35% maybe). I had not noticed that before.
    So there is definately some minimum brightness that is keeps to.

    It seems to dim a certain percentage in steps, so if you start at 100% it will go to 90% and then 80%. And if you are at 50% it will go to 45% and 40% (or 40% and 30% maybe) but it will never be a huge drop from 100% to 50% fortunately.

    I have received my Nord yesterday and I am also experiencing the muchsmuch discussed tinting issue at low brightness. Looked multiple threads but not sure if we have any solution to this. Do we have any update regarding this.

    Hi Varun,

    I've sent the links for log and screenshot to you in DM.

    One important thing about the screenshot. When I reproduced the issue during the log and took the screenshot, the screen was indeed less bright (which is the issue: brightness reduces automatically, although adaptive switch is off). But... it doesn't show on the screenshot! When I open the screenshot on my phone it is NOT less bright, but in fact it WAS less bright. Well, maybe that says something too.

    Another crazy thing about the brightness issue:

    - Open (for example) Chrome and watch the brightness drop after a few seconds.
    - Then press the square Android button in your navigation bar (or do the switch/overview gesture). You'll see the same Chrome screen in smaller size, but now at full brightness again.

    The same happens with any other app that is vulnerable to the brightness issue. See my previous post.

    My thoughts: certain system apps/functions or even third party apps are NOT vulnerable to the brightness issue, such as Homescreen, Settings, File Manager, Play Store, Assistant, Gmail and probably the Navigation screens too. Other system and third party apps ARE vulnerable to this brightness issue, such as Chrome, Maps, Twitter, YouTube, Whatsapp, MS Outlook, MS Office etcetera.

    There must be a common software reason why some apps/functions are or are not affected.

    Brightness breathing easy to reproduce on manual AND automatic brightness within Google Assistant "settings". The switch of brightness (and green tint every few seconds) is very obvious
