    Why is it that when on lowest brightness setting, the lock screen wallpaper looks really ugly?

    Could it be a resolution issue? Settings>display>resolution check if auto switch is on.

    Just did the troubleshooting by manually switching to both resolutions available. did not solve the issue.

    When the fingerprint sensor lights up, all else gets really ugly colors and shapes, like they were an 8 bit drawing.

    Try to do this to your phone. Reduce brightness to zero. Lock the phone. Wake your lock screen again to see your wallpaper and check its color. Make sure the fingerprint sensor is lit up.

    I have the same issue. I followed the instructions in this post and I keep getting the pixelated wallpaper when brightness is zero, and I tried to wake the lock screen.

    I thought it could be adaptive battery, I tried the instructions with adaptive battery on and off.

    Same here. I am also facing this issue. Has this something to do with the DC dimming feature in the OnePlus Laboratory option?

    No, it happens both on PWM and DC Dimming

    Could it be that because the fingerprint reader needs light, and brightness is at zero, it does that automatically?

    The low quality background is an issue or it is normal? I don't remember seeing a normal background when brightness was at zero.

    I think so. The low quality is aesthetically unpleasant, that's all. On brighter settings, it looks as it is supposed to.

    Yeah. I noticed that on the first day of purchase. Annoying stuff.

    I was able to get the bug. I suggest using the Feedback tool to report the issue. I will report it myself as well. Make sure you make the instructions to reproduce clear. Since your original post was vague.

    Also will mention that even the album art from playing songs also look different

    I'm sure it's an android thing. meant to help things look clearer on the lockscreen.

    If you know how to tag mods in this thread to explain what's going on I'd appreciate it very much

    I'm having the same issue with this lock screen resolution issue. Looks really bad on lock but when phone is unlocked looks fine. When I'm lock screen and pull down top menu the issue is immediately fixed, happens when I increase brightness too. I feel as though it has a passive brightness/quality control that I can't seem to find in settings.
