Screen Brightness Dropping to Zero (August UPDATE 0129)

That’s basically it … the brightness drops to minimum, sometimes several times a day. I’ve turned auto-brightness off: no change - back on again: no change. Each time I open Settings and push it up to about half way. It’s getting annoying, especially if I’m in a rush.

What to do? The phone is under warranty … I’m on Android V10.

TIA

Wow, that was quick! Where is it best to get the update from? I’m a Fairphone Newbie, although familiar with the Internet, Unix and most [old school] protocols … 8^)

Many thanks.

Once the update is published (it isn’t yet) by Fairphone, you should get a notification on your FP3 once you can download and install it. :slight_smile:

This actually is the proposed workaround until the update with the fix comes around.
Disabling adaptive brightness doesn’t fix the issue for you?
How exactly do you disable it?

I thought I’d done it in Settings → Display … which I have now just done & set brightness to to 80% ; will see how it goes. Thanks!

I have build number 8901.3.A.0129.20210805

Many thanks.
