Question Notice of changing screen brightness?

Has anyone noticed that the HTC Sensation's screen continues to change it's brightness automatically (in a bad way) continuously? I will set it on auto brightness and if I open the camera or go outside and it's really bright, it will change from auto to full brightness and won't dim unless I alter the settings again.. Bug? It's annoying.. Is there a fix? If not we need to notify HTC for a required update.




Patiently waiting for my Amazing Nexus 4

This really should have been posted in the "General" section instead of here, maybe a mod can move it...

I have noticed this as well. What's a little more annoying is when it dims down it doesn't do it gradually like my HD2 did (and many other HTC devices). Instead it goes from bright to dim very abruptly and tends to jump back and forth often.

I actually haven't noticed this at all. Got my Sensation yesterday. I will keep my eye out for it now, but maybe it's a bug...

Does yours gradually get dim when the screen is about to turn off or does it adjust abruptly?

Just checked, it abruptly dimmed, then turned off. Is that not normal?

Not that I'm aware of, my HD2 gradually gets dim which is nice. The last device I owned that did it this way was my HTC Blackstone (HD).

Pretty sure its a feature of the auto brightness. It adjusts to its surroundings. I uncheck mine and set the brightness level to where I want it so it doesn't do that.

Mine sometimes abruptly changes too. My MT4G was a LOT smoother with screen brightness changing. Yes it is annoying when it happens.

Mine dims as smooth as my girlfriends butt. But when i installed juicedefender it jumped instead. Had to activate screen dimming in troubleshooting for it to go smooth again. Also it doesn't go as low without juicedefender
