    The current adaptive brightness is very inferior to adaptive brightness on other phones. It is mostly too dark (and in few times too bright), and doesn’t seem to “learn” from the user continuous alterations and adjustments to it. Please fix ASAP because it makes a great influence on user experience.

    [Not Adopted]

    Hi 5urv1v0r, thanks for your feedback on Adaptive brightness. The IDEAS campaign is about getting new suggestions from our passionate users. Since your submission is something that is already available on our products, we're not considering this feedback as a valid idea, thus labelling it as [Not Adopted]. Yet we’re listening and happy to share with you how far we’ve gone towards optimizing this feature.

    The challenges are from those extreme scenarios (i.e. extra bright or extra dark environment, or with multiple light sources) when most of us found that the auto brightness didn’t work as expected. In fact, our algorithms can learn from your adjustment, so it is best not to toggle the Adaptive brightness on and off frequently. We set up a dedicated team to tackle this issue internally a few months back. Since then, we've been focusing on the optimisation of the response speed, smoothness, and stability of the backlight to bring you a better experience.

    Actually we've given our Community a heads-up on the progress we've achieved in this post https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/faq-all-about-oxygenos-march-2020.1198701/. Or you can also check below:

    OP7 and 7T devices: The updates had been pushed to all OP 7 and OP 7T devices recently, we could see an improvement. Check it out for yourself!

    OP 6T and older: The algorithms on the newer devices might not be suitable for the old ones. In terms of the smoothness, we still have some work to do. With more sensors added and the experience we learnt, the future devices will see a major improvement and please stay tuned.

    Though this “idea” is not adopted, we’re open to feedback about Adaptive brightness to gain more insights. Feel free to get back to us via the Community app.

    The AI in adaptive brightness doesn't seem to do any good learning if user brightness preferences

    I also agree and support this improvement. The display is most of the times too dim and I manually trigger the slider upwards. I have for example my wife's S10e which is spot on on brightness auto adjust. Perhaps this is also a hardware related think and not only software, meaning that the quality of the light sensor could influence this behavior.

    Yes unfortunately a great display that is to dim to enjoy without continually tampering with it

    It's not bright enough with direct sunlight, it feels like I'm back in the old days without a backlit display.

    Yes, it's too inferior. I am using both iPhone and Oneplus 7. iPhone brightness is spot on where as, I have to adjust the brightness for oneplus always.

    I recall that I read somewhere that there is a problem in the AI algorithm that handles adaptive brightness which defies its purpose.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that the adaptive brightness has improved with the open beta.

    Adaptive system really needs an improvement in One Plus 7T.. I have to manually ON and OFF it most of the times.

    sad to hear, it seems like every OnePlus phone had a bad adaptive Brightness, especially OnePlus 7t series, the proximity sensor is under the screen which is hard to fix, that's what I think

    I do find myself having to manually adjust the brightness levels frequently , where I had very little to no such issues on older phones.

    Sometimes it would adjust too much and sometimes not adjust at all, even when you deliberately change the lighting conditions.

    Thank you very much Gary for the feedback.

    I did receive the update on my OP 7T Pro, but honestly there is much more to be desired. Even after the update (which did improve the level of brightness to a certain extent), the screen is in most cases more dim than it should be, and the change in brightness takes more time and happens more harsh than on other handsets (compared to a Pixel 2XL and a Samsung Galaxy S8 plus).
    i love my OnePlus, and will look forward to future updates. All the best to the development and costumer service teams.
