Constant red light on the front side of the phone

I bought this phone 2 days ago .. I'm noticing there is a constant red light right side of the Sony logo (in the sensor area i suppose). No I'm not talking about the led notification light. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my phone?

That's because you have automatic brightness enabled.

This is a new feature on the x generation and makes the sensor really snappy, adjusting brightness on the go and really efficiently.

Really enjoying xz.. Read some good reviews as well... My only complain is with the battery... Sony was a beast in this department z3 is still the battery king... Xz feels like a step back Slightly frowning Face

Yeah the battery life is lousy. I get more out of my 2010 iPhone 4 which is still on the original battery.
I'm giving my XZ two full charges a day and that isn't going to make the non-removable battery last very long.

Please don't go offtopic here, there are other threads on battery life.
