Lockscreen picture is darker than the original ?



I got a XZ1 compact a few days ago and I have a problem with the lockscreen. No matter which picture I choose, there is always like a dark filter on it when I put it on lockscreen. It only applies to the picture, because the clock stays white and clear, and it only goes back to normal when I swipe to unlock, as you can see on the screenshot.

Is that normal ? How can we remove this dark filter ? 



Thank you for your helpAtOKC1HVo.jpg

It’s its normal behavior, so you know the phone is bocked. I have a totally black background, with it I cankt see the dark curtain, but I guess thatks not a solution for you. Maybe with a custom theme or a different lancher...

Installing and applying the "Minimal Light Theme" from sony gets rid of the filter, just uncheck the background box if u want a custom background. The theme can be found on play store
