Default [Q] Light sensor/auto brightness

Hi, does anybody have issues with light sensor/auto brightness on Nexus 4?

Sometimes mine stops working and brightness does not change with light variations.
Rebooting solves the problem.

I am running PA 4.5 beta 2 with stock kernel, but it happened sometimes also on stock rom.

Thanks!

Shouldn't be a problem with PA, I'm running it with no problems.
Maybe you have dirt over your sensor or maybe a thick screen guard over it?

Thank you, but I have no screen film and no dirt on the sensor.
It works again restarting the phone, it seems to stop working after an undefined period of time.

Try searching google for the lux auto brightness apk. Install this and let it take control of your auto brightness. See how it is. Make sure you download the full version.
