Default [APP][Share] Lux Auto Brightness

I've seen in the general section that the auto-brightness feature of Z2 is very controversial. I'm of those who find that the screen is a little too dim even with auto-brightness set at its max. Hoping that this will be fixed in a future firmware.

I've tested Lux Auto Brightness and it works very fine as a replacement as the built-in stock autobrightness. It is quite reactive and the brightness can be easily calibrated.
It is not free though.

I agree, LUX works far better than the default system function.
However it needs some tweak to be perfect; as sometime it chooses to dim the screen a little too much

Yes, a profile must be created and edited. This is the profile I've created:

Lux / Brightness
0 / 50%
35 / 70%
1000 / 100%
+ log interpolation (default)
+ 5% Jitter percentage
+ brightness variation speed: normal

It's fine for me

Wow that's brighter than me

My configuration is a bit overkill though :

0 -35%
10 30%
20 35%
35 40%
45 50%
60 60%
700 75%
1400 75%
10000 80%
13000 100%

Yes, this is why I found that the stock autobrightness was to dim even set at its max.
I've modified my profile a little, stretching it from 50% to 100%, it's better like that.

For those of you who already have Tasker, this can be quite easily done using Tasker as well. For me, I set on auto-brightness but with slider to the max. This suits me for most occasions, except when it's really dark, in which case I find it too bright. So for me I just have 2 simple profiles on screen unlock if the light reading is less than 5, set brightness to 0, otherwise set brightness to 255.

I don't know why but I can't get the setting right. The screen is either way bright or too low. Now I reverted by to the default values. [emoji26]
