Hi, my #fp4 doesn’t go lower than 30% when unlocking my phone at night. I was expecting that the phone would learn this preference, but after a week it still doesn’t go to 0% at night. The screen of the #fp4 can’t really go very low anyway, with auto brightness at a minimum of 30% it’s not great for my eyes
I’ll contact support to ask if this can be improved. For those who want lower brightness than the phone default, Android 12 includes an option to go down a notch further (not sure if it’s Pixel exclusive though). So maybe in the future that will come in handy.
The FP4 on the left is running Calyx A12, the FP4 on the right FPOS A11, both with Night Light disabled and at their lowest possible brightness setting.
Even if it might not be completely apparent, there is a significant difference in minimum brightness, so there is the possibility for improvement.
Not really. The minimum brightness has been deemed to high for some people. There was an attempt to lower it and at the same time adjust the automatic brightness. This failed in that the auto brightness made the screen effectively turn off with the lower settings.
The only resolution was to undo the update so it is back to how it was.
It’s a personal issue, unless soem phones are different. We have two FP3s and an FP4 in the family and everyone thinks the lowest brightness is fine.
So no it’s not high, it’s the usual default. Whether it is personal or your phones is debatable.
Apparently there are apps that can override the Android 11 settings but it may require rooting the device.
I am another new owner of a for and I can confirm that the problem is still there.
The automatic brightness control goes only down to somehow 30%. Using manual control I can go much lower. So this looks like a bug in the automatic and there will be no app as a solution
Hi, I continually need to adjust automatic brightness on my Fairphone 4. It is most easy to reproduce in complete darkness: The brightness adjustment slider is then at about 30 %. It is too bright, I have to adjust it down to zero. If I use my phone another time in comlete darkness, it is at 30 % again. This is also the case in other (brighter) environments, the screen is always brighter than necessary. This drains the battery and is annoying in dark environments. Is there some way to adjust brightness to have it still automatic, but generally darker? Thanks…
