Re: What is optimized backlight

Optimized backlight is based on the CABL (Content Adaptive Backlight Control [also referred to as CABL]) technology which is implemented in the display. CABL adjusts the backlight dynamically based on the content being displayed. The basic idea is that by making the displayed image brighter, you can reduce the backlight and still get the same net result when the image is viewed on the display. Backlight consumes a lot of power, so reducing the backlight by turning on Optimized backlight reduces the battery consumption.

Re: What is optimized backlight

Are you referring to the 'adapt to lightning conditions' under the brightness setting? 

 

When you have that option activated the display adapts the brightness to the surroundings which can save battery because it lower the brightness in dark surroundings.

Re: What is optimized backlight

Under Setting -> Display-> Optimized Backlight , this option if off will cause long boot up with backlight on continually. Resolve it by turn back on this options and reboot.

Re: What is optimized backlight

Previous firmwares must be all messed up with CABL micro controller output settings so it caused sod and what's funny is that it's stated that .257 firmware has better battery consumption when CABL by itself is a better battery consumption. I guess the function is still there we just don't have an option to switch it off, playing with backlight wasn't a good idea

Re: What is optimized backlight

That is because before that version, if you play with that option will cause some serious problem like mentioned before.

 

I think they hide it from user until it fix all issue.  FYI, currently that option even not show, it is ON by default now in new firmware. 2.257
