Adaptive Brightness is a nightmare if you are in a room.
I'm just curious is your room with the central light on the ceiling in the middle, or is there no central light with lots of lamps everywhere possible in the room?
Wow I think the light sensor is seriously flawed on my phone. This is from zenfone 6z. Notice how even a small tilt away from direct light makes the sensor think there is no light
This is in the same room and the phone is Samsung S9+
It is not only your phone, mine do the exact same thing. Before the ZF6 I've had the nexus 5 for 6 years and I've never face this type of problem. Thanks for posting a video.
I'm afraid to remove the tempered glass. Even after I remove it and it behaves the same it would be awful
I have a problem with auto brightness too. Sometimes it goes to 0% without any reason. Then I have to expand notification bar and manualy adjust brightness
@Anders_ASUS Hi! Did you get any new updates on this issue?
No, I never got in touch with our expert. He didn't have time when I had time and vice versa but the bottom line is that sometimes (since the light sensors sensitivity is so directed towards your face) it happens that there's much less light on your face and surroundings than on your device. So whenever you notice that the brightness is going down all of a sudden, think about this and you will understand why it happened. Just pull up the brightness and it will temporarily ignore whatever lux it's currently registering so you can carry on
Thank you for responding and supporting us with this issue.
I'm already using workarounds, but I'm also keeping my fingers crossed for a fix, it seems like something that can be fixed (or at least made better) in SW by increasing the sensor resolution.
If you could please forward the videos I've attached in an earlier post to the SW team maybe that could help them identify the underlying issue or maybe come up with some ideas on how to improve it.
Once again thank you Anders for your patience and efforts to support the community.
it has stopped working entirely post recent update.. adaptive brightness is just a useless toggle now.
You just have to delete the data from the application to fix the problem.
Unfortunately, despite that we have the latest version of Device Health Services:
This app doesn't offer dedicated button for resetting just adaptive brightness on ZF6:
