Re: Blue light filter - Oreo

Hi @GingerSteve77

Night light is an option that has been available on Xperia X Concept and is present on XZ2

Hope that many more ask for that feature.

Re: Blue light filter - Oreo

I can't believe this feature isn't being built in to Oreo if we are no longer allowed to use third-party apps to do it! Who comes up with this stuff? So we now have to suffer sh*t sleep and headaches because some loser at Google has decided that only their Pixel phones can have night light mode native to Android!

 

Are there any plans from Sony to try and integrate a blue-light filter?

Bump, seems like our struggles have come to an end (haven't tried it myself yet though)

Yes, the last solution works on my X Compact with March security update.

That's interesting, thanks for letting me know.

 

Is there any word on Sony including this feature in an official update for their phones? (including X Compact)

Re: Blue light filter - Oreo

I fixed it!

 

1. Measure the width of your screen and the height of the status bar.

2. Carefully cut a piece of electrical tape to those same dimensions.

3. Place the electrical tape over the status bar.

 

Problem solved!

 

(But seriously, this is annoying)

Re: Blue light filter - Oreo

I have sleep delay syndrome disorder and the total cover of the screen (including lock screen, status bar and notifications) was really important... I'm going to root the phone and install the previous version

Huh @Ooohlala  ?

This night light isn't good enough? You can even switch it on all day and change intensity.

One other thing and I don't want to offend you; Do you need this device by your side?

I sleep upstairs and my phone has to stay downstairs when I sleep.

It is a guarantee for undisrupted nights as far as electric devices are concerned.

Re: Blue light filter - Oreo

Turn the phone face-down. If you set it to give you a quiet audible notification only when something important occurs you won't be disturbed, at least while you sleep.
