Blue light filter ?

Re: Blue light filter ?

A quick googleing shows that : 

Pixel indeed has Night Light on 7.1

HTC U11 comes with 7.1 and has Night Mode/Light

 

I believe it was around October since it was announced that Nexus lineup won't receive Night Light due to HW requirements. If we take into calculation that a lot of users welcomed the feature , that it was available on lot of phones on 7.0, and that there was (hopefully) enough time to implement it, honestly , I would blindly guess that any new flagship phone will come with the feature. 

And I'd be wrong. Slightly smiling Face

 

On the other hand I'm fairly confident that Sony can pull it off with a future update.

Re: Blue light filter ?

Even there's no more in 7.1.2,all flagship phones coming with it because all manufacturers implement it

LG - Comfort view

Samsung - Blue light filter

Asus - Bluelight filter or reading mode(depending on models) 

Xiaomi - Reading mode and Lenovo - Comfort Mode

WHY ONLY SONY HASN'T IT WHY

Re: Blue light filter ?

Hmm.. Such a shame there is no filter. I also checked all the settings. Couldn't find it so Googled it and here I am. Hope they will implement it in the nearby future.

Re: Blue light filter ?

Hello everyone and thank you all for your questions regarding night mode / blue light filter.

There are currently no plans on adding a night mode/light to Xperia devices. It is, however, possible to use a third party application to achieve a night mode/light effect.

I will make sure to forward all your feedback internally regarding this as I can see how this can be a very useful feature to have in our devices. Do note that I can't make any promises that this will be implemented later on.

Re: Blue light filter ?

@Jonas This is scandalous!

A default feature of Android 8 is disabled.

Why do we have to use buggy third party software on a flagship model?

 

Just turn this feature on!

 

Doesn't Sony care about users health?

The blue light filters do not hold their place on this crappy phone. I've tried everyone and after about 20mins they switch off. This is the worst phone I've ever bought and I will never buy Sony again.

Oreo

They took out Blue Light out of Assist: Good Night Mode in Oreo.

 

I think they way to solve this is to just make Blue light a quick icon. Help the consistency when it is activated. 

 

Supposedly ita back for the Xperia XZ2 as "Night Light" in settings.  I haven't yet found this setting on the Xperia XZ Premium yet.

Re: Blue light filter ?

@sibojan, sorry to hear that you feel this way and I apologize for my late reply, I have been out of office due to vacation.

Feedback is always very important for us and I have already forwarded the feedback internally regarding night light / blue light filter. Do note that I can't make any promises though.
