    I have the same issue on my OnePlus 7T. It's more prominent in the night where the brightness goes down to the minimum and needs to be adjusted manually. I haven't yet faced the issue under direct sunlight.

    The latest update log doesn't mention any corrections for this issue.

    Oneplus dont care about this bugs but in the daily use these things are more important than anything else... i think oneplus has to reply to the community before to start the selling of the new phones.

    I am also struggling. The screen is CONSTANTLY setting itself too dim. This tends to happen when the phone exits game mode.
    Please fix this OnePlus!

    In fairness, I have never had a phone where the automatic screen brightness by any name worked right. LG came closest, but no cigar. That's another thing that gets disabled early on in the setup for me.

    Anecdotal evidence seems to indicate that it works even worse on Q than it did on previous releases, however. I haven't had a single person tell me they were happy with the implementation on 10, including people who thought it worked okay on 8 and 9. So maybe it's a 10 thing rather than an OP thing.

    I am having the same issue. Does oneplus acknowledge it? you know what, oneplus never delivered a complete package bug-free phone.

    Never had a phone that had it nailed. though I think for a lot of people have DC dimming enabled, which screws up low light brightness.

    I think the adaptive brightness works best with dc dimming disabled.

    I haven't tried the combination of Adaptive Brightness + DC Dimming on this phone as I disabled Adaptive Brightness pretty early on (with the default setting of DC Dimming disabled). As has been the case with every other Android I've owned, it didn't work well. It's always, always, ALWAYS too dark. So I turned it off.

    In fairness to the feature, I've been told that over time, Adaptive Brightness will learn the user's preference and adjust the baseline brightness accordingly. I've never given it enough time to learn. It's just not that important to me.

    About 45 percent brightness works for me indoors or while using the phone for navigation at night or on cloudy days, and about 85 percent works when using the phone for navigation on sunny days. It's pretty rare that I need anything other than those two settings. On those rare occasions when I do, I just move the slider. It's not exactly a traumatic experience.

    That being said, I always thought it would make sense to include a Baseline setting in Adaptive Brightness. Let the user decide where they like the brightness, and then calibrate the adjustments according to that baseline. If I didn't consider it so trivial, I might even code something to do that. But really, it's just not worth the bother to me.

    Same for my 7T. It's practically garbage. So I turned it off, and managed to save some battery in the process.

    From what I've researched on the internet, this issue can't be fixed by OnePlus as the sensors are placed in such a manner to achieve the notchless design practically impossible to resolve it with a software update. This bug is here to stay and we have to live with it.

    This is the exact reason why many internal developers haven't acknowledged this yet.

    Clearly will never work on the low end anymore, I.e, too dim in low light, especially if using dark themes.
    There is no such thing as 'training', I tried for 3 months on my 7t to no effect.
    Easily solved if Android or OnePlus would create a setting for the min brightness allowed, never go below even in pitch black env.

    Yeah, that's been my experience on literally every Android phone I've owned -- and I've owned quite a few. Google needs to add a user-selectable "baseline" setting. It's supposed to learn that on its own, but it doesn't.

    On the bright side (see what I did there?), manually setting the screen brightness isn't exactly a hardship.

    Just got my 7T and I am shocked at how bad the adaptive brightness is. I had a 5T and it worked fine. This is so frustrating! Come on Oneplus this is cleary a problem. Address it. I don't want to SETTLE for this.
