Brightness settings changed since Pie update

2019-03-23, 8:28 AM

Before updating my Moto G6 to Android 9.0 my brightness setting was just above the minimum but now I have to set it to 50% to get the same level. 

 

Why has it been changed? My battery is also draining faster because of this.

There's a new brightness settings in the settings of the phone called Adaptive brightness. So maybe turning it off or on will fix your problem

Adaptive brightness is not the issue. It's not on, nor has it ever been. I would like to know why I've had to increase the brightness on my phone from 5% (on Oreo) to 50% (on Pie) to get the same level of brightness.

I am having exactly the same issue. Also I have noticed that the maximum brightness level isn't what it was either. 

 

I bought this phone particularly for its clear screen; I am partially sighted and need a phone that works well outdoors. Since the Pie update I'm finding my device more difficult to use. I'd be grateful for a fix.

Although I don't share the vision problems, my experience is exactly the same. Brightness control needs to be in the upper region, maximum brightness is lower. Adaptive brightness is not relevant, it doesn't help this problem anyway and is not something I use either.

 

Why can't people just leave things alone sometimes, or at least admit when their "brilliant ideas" don't work and put it back the way it works??

Re: Brightness settings changed since Pie update

2019-04-01, 8:56 AM

Hi, updated to Android 9 Pie yesterday 31/3 and the first thing I noticed is the brightness is ruined. I have a Moto G6 plus and out of the box the brightness of the phone is THE best I've had on ANY phone. Android 9 Pie has completely wrecked it now, I only used to have the brightness low and tweak it up in really bright light, and full sun. It's awful now. I bought this phone on the reviews I read first, and the brightness on it was one of them. Why would they bring an update out to ruin it, like someone else said why?? Unless I get a fix for it I will change the phone, it's stupid.

Please, is there a fix for brightness issues on Moto G6 plus since Android 9 Pie Update. Would be so grateful.

As I said in a previous post, it's awful an update could cause this,

PLEASE FIX.

I originally posted two weeks ago regarding this problem and I'm surprised to see that no agent has responded to either acknowledge there is an issue and that it's being looked into, offer a solution, or refute my claim.

 

Is Lenovo hoping that by ignoring this issue it will somehow go away?

Just updated my G6 Play and the same thing has happened plus there are other things I don't like about the update such as the home button area being a solid colour rather than transparent on certain apps, IMDB for example where it's a solid grey colour. Also would prefer the apps tray background to be a darker transparent hue rather than the white of Android 9.

Tried adaptive brightness tonight to see what difference this made and it set the brightness level down to 0%, yes I was in a fairly dark room, but 0%, you've got to be kidding!

 

Did anyone at Lenovo do any testing before this update was pushed out?
