Both C6833 and C6802 have the same issue. Try to turn on "adapt to lightening condition" and Un-tick "Optimized backlight" no need to restart, SOD will come soon after.

I decided to reply to let u guys know...
For me, if it isn't broken, don't fix it is my style, and from the beginning I have had no SOD so I never messed with settings under display section
. This changed very recently when i installed Utorrent.
Since I have never changed settings in here, I expected it to be default, but was puzzled to see that it is different from what people are reporting as default setting.
My default seems that ''adapt to lighting conditions'' under brightness is ON (ticked), and optimized backlight is off (no tick)
Strange, don't u think?
Anyway, what changed was this.
I have luckily never experienced SOD in the way other users have from the beginning with my C6802 (originally HK, but now VN .532)
I had my unique SOD recently, but I know exactly what the cause is, and I can only replicate it under certain conditions.
I sometimes use UTorrent, and when I am downloading more than 3 files at once and get fast and fat download bandwidth, the phone starts to lag, and become unresponsive, therefore feeling like SOD. But I guess it is not SOD like all others are reporting.
So to clarify, by default, my phone's optimized backlight option seems to be off, and as long as I never use UTorrent, I have no problem.
