Re: Auto backlight not smooth

Just got my new Xperia Xz1. Can confirm that I have the same issues, and I have the latest updates.

Re: Auto backlight not smooth

I have installed velis auto brightness, it has solved the problem of zero brightness in low light, at least until there is a new firmware update.

Re: Auto backlight not smooth

Like everyone else, I think this is something that Sony should seriously consider refining. I don't want to compare the XZ1 to other devices, but a certain "fruit" phone handles changing brightness significantly better, as it has a buttery smooth transition between backlight levels. I mean, you can see the slider gradually creep up or down as the lighting changes - just an overall premium experience.

 

I'd love to see this updated + an official night mode baked into the firmware.

Re: Auto backlight not smooth

Yes, it's only a software issue, now I'm using lux dash and it works fine.
