Great phone but, it appears to be a bug with the screen dimming.

Regarding settings, I have everything turned off. Adapt display is off. Auto-brightness is off. Auto-adjust screen tone is off also.

I know Samsung displays dim if the phone overheats but my phone will auto-dim even if the phone is cool.

What I've found out is that the phone will only dim "permanently" when the screen is about to shut off.

For example: Set the screen shut off to 30 seconds and around the 28 second mark, the screen will dim for a couple of seconds before it shuts off. This is where the auto-dimming will "permanently" kick in. When the screen dims at the 28 second mark for a second, i'll touch the screen so it doesn't shut off. But by this time, the screen has dimmed already and won't go back to the regular brightness. I have to lock and unlock the phone for the dimmed screen to go away.

This scenario has happened every single time. Extremely annoying.

Anyone else experience this?

Lightbulb Try this...
Hi

As the other user said it might be the software bug.
Please try this app. Disable your auto brightness and install this software https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...assisi.luxlite
This lite version is free. Try this. If everything works, you may consider the paid version to support the dev guy...
