When auto brightness is enabled and I'm viewing the phone in direct sunlight, the maximum brightness seems to change really quickly. It brightens and dims quickly, almost qausing a feeling of screenflicker.
With auto brightness off, the problem is non existent.

It only happens when the phone hits 100% brightness. Anyone noticed this. And is there a solution other than turning auto brightness off?

For me autobrightness is useless. Simply too dark in all conditions. Also max brightness is not enough for when you have direct sun on the screen.

I have noticed the same, it's usually too dark for my taste.. would be nice if you could config how dim it goes automatically.

I finally gave up and installed the Lux app. Hopefully they will solve the issue in the next updates.

You're all insane. This phone has the best auto brightness I've ever used. It's very responsive without changing so fast that it becomes an issue in flickering light conditions like walking past trees where sunlight filters through or something.

OLED displays have two "maximum" brightnesses; the normal maximum, which is intended for full-time use, and High Brightness/Sunlight Mode, which maxes the pixel brightnesses out for temporary outdoors full-sunlight usage.

The OP6 might have the threshold for what it considers "full sunlight" set too high, which would cause a lot of flickering in the event that the phone isn't held perfectly still in sunlight because of the light sensor output dancing back and forth across the threshold.

There's probably no changing it until someone rolls out a custom kernel in which it can be disabled or tweaked, in the meantime you can find auto-brightness apps on the Play Store that let you set custom curves (note that this'll probably require root). Hopefully OnePlus will fix it in the stock kernel themselves, terrible auto-brightness can make or break a phone in my opinion : \

I would not hold your breath. It was an issue on the 5t and not sorted during the time I had it.

Can't say I've noticed the issue on the 6 though with adaptive brightness mode enabled

Couldn't agree more autobrightness seems too dark on my op6. Under direct sunlight, I have to disable auto and full the bar myself..
