Same problem as this thread ( with latest available release (. 107) and after factory reset.

Problem is the screen remains at low brightness level even with lots of ambient light and despite the toggle showing >80%.

    Same here, my zenfone 8 screen is too dim/dark after android 12 update

    Yes I have this too, it can take a lot longer to find the correct brightness when going outside.

    Dear @Irene2_ASUS Maybe put this issue to the next fix or update patch. It's really annoying when ZF8 have a beautiful super amoled screen (A11, before update) but now the brightness is too dark after android 12 update.


  • I have a similar issue where the brightness will take a while to adjust to daylight. For several seconds it is too dim, but it does eventually catch up. It is slower to adjust in Android 12.

  • Please reset your adaptive brightness settings by navigating to:

    Settings -> Search settings for 'Device Health Services' -> App info -> Storage & cache -> Clear storage -> Reset adaptive brightness

    After this, please clear cache files system-wide and then reboot your device.

    Settings -> Advanced -> Mobile Manager -> Cleanup
