Re: screen dims and brightens automatically

I refer to this dim and bright problem. I suppose Sony would fix it on lollipop update, but it is not. Recently, I've tried to adjust the white balance setting, I found that some setting can improve the problem a lot, such as (63,63,63).

 

I should not say this setting can totally solved the problem. What we should do now is sharing the webpages that got dim and bright, and then figure out the best setting together. I am just a simple user, but I spend a lot of time trying to make my c3 better.

 

I hope this problem can be solved. Please share anything that we can improve our C3 such as the front camera. Before Sony releasing another update, it is one of the thing we can do in this forum. 

 

Thanks!

Hi..after a visit of many web pages n playstore i figure out 117-117-117 is d best count to remove almost 99.9% dim n bright. U can also check in playstore at editor choice..scroll down may b 2nd app called EQ being with skyblue.

Re: screen dims and brightens automatically

Hi..after a lollipop update issue with front camera i hav tried many camera apps n found finally " A better camera" app [ Avbl in play store] this app works fine in c3 dual. 4:3 size pics good in this, once u choose 16:9 again d pics r dark. For this size better take it n sony camera by changing setting to manul n hdr on..somehow better alternative until d new update release from Sony.

Re: screen dims and brightens automatically

Thanks! I am happy to hear your suggestion. How about the flash light of front cam? If it works,I will update to lollipop again. At this moment,I keep using the Kikat build .391 firmware. It takes time to upgrade and downgrade again.

Re: screen dims and brightens automatically

Hello, I have tried "a better camer" and "camera fv-5" on lollipop, both work fine on front cam 4:3 including the flash light. As you said,16:9 got dark image. Thanks for your clear explaination. I think it is the best temporary solution for c3 lollipop user at this moment.
