oneplus 6 auto brightness problem

    i have to ajust the brightness a little higher every time i unlock the phone because the auto brightness function keeps the screen more dim that it should. is there a fix for this?

    This may be a software problem. Although, I do recommend that you try cleaning all the sensors carefully in the so-called 'notch' area with a microfiber cloth. If this doesn't help, don't worry. I am actually loving the auto brightness feature on my OP 6 and it's working perfectly to my need. This should get fixed in a future software update, hopefully. I advise you to close this thread after you have cleaned the sensors of your phone. Thanks.

    it's been broken since OnePlus 3. Nothing anyone can do about it, though I fail to understand how difficult it would be have a setting for a *minimum* level of brightness.

    I have the same problem I have to disable the auto brightness because is to quick and too sensitive, often the screen is too dark, quite disappointed.

    Auto brightness is basically unusable because the default setting is too dark.

    There should be a setting to adjust the minimum level to a personal preference.

    same here. I would like to use it but it keeps putting the brightness to low. I hope that with the Android P AI Brightness learning this can change

    Auto-brightness is terribly implemented. Not nearly sensitive enough. If I manually adjust auto-brightness higher, I can go from a decently lit room to complete darkness and the brightness doesn't adjust at all.

    Seriously feel like I just bought a piece of junk. Nice hardware, but silly software.

    This auto brightness issue combined with the terrible camera app (no manual video? What?)... No way I'll be keeping this junk.

    Just got my OnePlus 6 yesterday. After my Galaxy S8+ which had very good auto brightness control, the OnePlus 6 is a fail. Come on guys. Surely this isn't rocket science.

    I have the opposite side of the story increase the brightness not decrease !!!
    For everyone is suffering of automatic brightness increment here the solution :
    Just go to Settings > Security & Lock Screen > Face Unlock > Disable Face Unlock.

    If you all had done even a simple search of the forum you would have found numerous threads on this issue and the reasons for it. You can all thank Google for it, they are the ones who made the change.

    If it bothers you that much, shut off adaptive brightness, set the setting where you want it and Bob's your Uncle.

    Otherwise, you need to take the time to READ what changes Google made and how it now works. This is not a bug, it's not a problem, it's how it is.

    Just don't update to Pie, it's a buggy POS with no excuse.
