Re: Ambient Light Sensor

I've been trying different Ambient Light Sensors and it seems that eventhough the Arc came with one, and it works, it's NOT activated

Re: Ambient Light Sensor

This is also the case on my active, no lightsensor available for apps, but working overtime responding to tv sets and lcd screens thus producing a very unsteady lighting scheme with flicker and up/down/up/down searching. Learn how to program hysteresis SE!

Re: Ambient Light Sensor

Can we ask Sony for an enable \ disable auto brightness option aside from a software bug fix? Or is it a hardware issue? The screen brightness on my new Xperia Active is set at 100% and yet it dims and brightens on it's own despite my being in a room with steady bright light. Description in the X Active forum.
