    Hallo Varun,

    Is it possible to increase the brightness of the display the MAX setting is still to low when the phone is in direct sunlight

    I have a Nord and the screen brightness is driving me insane. I have adaptive brightness off. I like a warmer colour tint, and fairly low brightness (my eyes are really sensitive to bright light) but when I open certain apps the brightness shoots WAY up, like really bright white.

    Apps that do this are all Google apps it seems to me: Gmail, Chrome, the "shelf" / Google app, Google Pay, Drive

    It's almost like the Google apps are ignoring custom screen calibration set by the user.

    Hi team I don't know why the hidden apps password and main lock screen password are same?This is raising privacy issue.you can change it like four digit for lock screen and six digit for hidden apps.

    As you can see I'm facing this issue as well. After changing the viewing angle green and purple bars are appearing. It's best visible on white colours and it doesn't seem to have any relation with brightness levels. I've had Amoled screens before but I've never seen these effects. Hopefully this is fixable with a software update because the rest of the phone is splendid!

    This is so major issue in real life that i am thinking of returning/replacing the mobile

    Yours is green, mine is purple
    All over the screen

    And my speaker /all nord users speakers are damaged
    Just hear corona or busy ringtone while calling someone, you will hear something abnormal speaker noise while the ringtone is being heard.

    Interesting addition to an already mentioned problem: brightness drops automatically, although adaptive switch is off. See my earlier post. And also this post.

    - In your case (with brightness set to fairly low and adaptive switch off) the brightness shoots way up in certain apps.
    - In my case (with brightness set to pretty high and adaptive switch off) the brightness drops down about 20% in certain apps.

    So new conclusion is (on top of the other conclusions in this topic): it seems that certain system functions and apps trigger the brightness to be set at a certain predefined level. For users with standard low brightness it feels that the screen gets way to bright all of a sudden. For users like me (with standard high brightness) it feels that the screen gets less bright.

    This 'predefined level' is new information: what seems like an increase for person A, is a decrease for person B, depending on how high you set your standard brightness. So something in apps or system functions sets brightness to a specific level.

    @Varun Please pay attention to this new info.

    I agree with you. All amoled screens from all brands have these issues. In normal use you wouldn't even notice it, unless you look for it. However, we can't ignore the fact that some screens are more affected than others. If that's the case, you have bad luck and should return your phone. But don't keep complaining about green/purple issues when you can only see them under abnormal circumstances.

    From reading this thread, I agree that this looks like the issue. I know some apps can override user brightness settings, for example Google Pay raises screen brightness when displaying a QR Code to make it easier to scan, and it looks to me like this is what's happening here. it's not consistent for me though, sometimes I'll open Gmail and it's fine, and the next time the brightness shoots way up.

    I also have the colour banding issue when viewing the screen from an angle, but it doesn't bother me.

    For me Gmail is consistent so far (not affected), but I don't use Gmail that much. Here's my list so far (also posted earlier):

    Brightness DOESN'T reduce (change) automatically:
    File Manager
    Play Store

    Brightness DOES reduce (change) automatically:
    MS Outlook
    MS Office

    Honestly, I have not faced this problem on my nord. The tint is very subtle, and will not be visible unless you pixel peep too much.. If its too drastic for you, please consider replacing the device

    In certain apps, screen brightness automatically decreases or becomes slightly dull even when adaptive brightness is off. This occurs when the phone is kept idle for 3-4 seconds. I noticed it in chrome, instagram, Facebook. It is very consistent and doesn't occur randomly.

    Display issues.

    1. Green tint issue in chrome. ( or any other grey page)
    2. Purple tint issue in OnePlus community app and settings app (or any other such black page)

    Brightness issue.

    1. Adaptive Brightness enabled
    2. when I unlock using fingerprint. The brightness will be high automatically and it doesn't automatically reduce unless manually reduced.

    Battery Draining (OnePlus Nord)

    I could get SOT of about 5 hours most times. but when I play games I would get around less than 4.5 hours. Battery Draining needs to be really Improved on OnePlus Nord.

    4115 mAh battery must easily last around 6.5 to 7 hours but this is not case in actual usage.

    Please improve the battery performance with an OTA.

    Hi guys. First of all congrats for launching a mid range OnePlus device with flag ship features. Got NORD 3 days back and it's amazing. This is my first OnePlus device. But I noticed some changes can be made to improve as you always help your customers to stay with you by listening to us.
    First thing I noticed is when we use phone under sunlight it's not upto the brightness. Kindly improve the brightness so that we can see screen in sun light without straining our eyes.
    Second thing please revamp the battery consumption. I think something is sucking battery. But I agree it's Amoled with 90Hz. But if you can make some tweaks will be better.

    Hope the above can be addressed and we can get a OTA update.

    Once again thank you team for delivering a wonderful device.

    I think the outdoor brightness is too low it seems like it is the same as my OnePlus 3?
