Z2 Play Stuck in Night Display Mode

2019-04-28, 15:33 PM

2 Nights ago my z2 play night filter turned on as per usual, and now it won't turn off. From what I can tell it seems like there is a second filter layer running but the only app I have used for this is the Moto app that came on the phone.  My hunch is that the native filter that comes with Android has somehow been enabled, but since Lenovo disabled the toggle in settings, I have no way to adjust it. The reason I think this, is that during the hours that the Moto display is supposed to be active, the filter gets nearly unusably dark.


I have to this point turned the filter off and on, rebooting the phone multiple times in each setting. I found that if I did a hard reboot (holding power plus volume) that it did turn the filter off for a time, however it came back on, and this option no longer seems to work.


I am running Android 8.0.0 and my last update was a while ago. I haven't installed any new apps in the last week and most apps are up to date, specifically though, the moto apps are. 


Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Any app able of this should be requiring the "draw over other apps" permission. Go to settings and turn it off for every app being able to request it.
