My Fairphone 3 updated yesterday and since then the lowest brightness setting has become much brighter than previously. It’s giving me a headache to use at night now!
Anyone else having the same problem, and can it be fixed? The old bright was settings were just fine!
Hi and welcome, yes you are not the only one and Fairphone is working on a fix. You will find several posts reg this, in the thread linked below you will find the official statements. I know its a long topic, so to summarize: the fix implemented for the “too bright” issue broke the adaptive brightness and therefore was cancelled. Have you tried to use Nighlight? I feel its a bit better when its turned on
Thanks once again for flagging these issues. Our technical team has been investigating both the adaptive brightness, and the unknown caller ID issue in Germany, and have found the root causes for both. We’re currently working hard to implement these fixes as soon as possible.
Fixes for both of these will come in the next software update. In the software update after that one, we aim to re-introduce the improvement for display lighting so that it works as we envisioned.
Hi welcome again.
You didn’t say what update this was nor what you had before, this is avery old issue, many months.
As mentioned this issue was reported after the 0129 update and still exists after the 0132 and 0134
The minimum brightness issue was rolled back on the 0132 (5th Nov) update so that it is not so dark at the minimum setting and the adaptive brightness works as expected. The 0134 (16th Nov)does nothing to either of these issues.
