Re: Backlight control app

Hello everyone and I'm sorry to hear about this.

You might experience that the Smart backlight control does not work or keeps stopping. This is a known behaviour that will be corrected in a new software release.

Re: Backlight control app

@GHOST2081have you tried disabling Smart backlight control in Settings > Display > Advanced > Smart backlight control and enabling it again?

Re: Backlight control app

I experience the same issue on an Xperia XZ Premium after upgrading to Android Pie.

Disabling and re enabling the Smart backlight control doesn't solve the issue.

Re: Backlight control app

I do have the same problem with my Xperia Xz P, after upgrading to Pie. 

It only happens during the night, with goodnight action on.
