Has anyone else noticed this or do I have a bad light sensor? My phone almost always goes to the minimum, or damn near minimum brightness when I turn on auto-bright.

It's not a bad light sensor LG just has it's set to go to 0 opposed to 15 as far as I heard like a lot of other manufacturers do. Hopefully this will be fixed in a future update

Which carrier are you with? I read about auto brightness issues in some reviews (including XDA's) but haven't had any myself.

T-Mobile. I have seen that now, clearly a bug.

LG had the same issue with the Pixel 2 xl. Until it was fixed I had to run Lux app and set minimum brightness to 25. They tweaked the software eventually so like 15 was the new 0 or something like that.

When I'm in a dark room my auto brightness goes to around 12%. I haven't had any problems so far.

I noticed if I change the brightness on the other screen it fixes it.

Ya in light environments the sensor seems to work perfectly but as soon as I go into a dimmed room, not dark, it goes to zero and I can hardly see the screen.

Just tried changing it on the 2nd screen. Weird that you can adjust the 2nd screen while auto brightness is on but you can't change it on the main screen.

Just as easy to turn auto off, which I do on every phone and set it manually and leave it.
