Default [Q] nova launcher brightness fluctuates

Using nova launcher on the z1, 4.3, when I open a folder on the home screen, the whole screen gets a little brighter. Same when using Swype keyboard, though that's not always consistent.

Anyone else get this, is it normal?

It's not nova launcher. Its the way the panel of the screen for Z1 is.

To test it well, using your Tapatalk to test. Set the theme to a dark one. Then come to a thread and start scrolling.

You'll notice that texts get more white when a bright picture is included in what you scroll, if you go past it, white text go back dull.

Its more like a dynamic thing but it sucks.
It just proves how poor the quality of the lcd is coupled with the viewing angle.
