Why is brightness lower than Moto G 5?

2020-06-04, 22:00 PM

Side-by-side I need 80% of brightness on moto g power to get similar results as 20% on my Moto G 5.

 

At 100% the moto g 8 power is hard to read on direct sunlight. But nothing you can do, right?

 

I don't mind if you can push the light even more than current max as the battery will last long enough anyway on this phone. After 4 days of minimal use I was still at 36% battery left and I would not mind at all to recharge sooner as I'm used to recharge every evening, I did this 4 days no charge test because I was curious.

Do you have Adaptive Brightness enabled?

 

I never use it and prefer to manually set mine.

 

HTH :)

Of course not, disabled also for me. I should have specified.

This is by design. After Android Oreo, Google officially re-configured the brightness slider in Android Pie. According to XDA, "the brightness slider behavior changed in Android Pie: It now changes the brightness logarithmically instead of linearly. Before this preview when it was linear, about 90% of the brightness was controlled by the lower 20% of the left of the slider, and the upper half of the brightness slider barely changed the perceived brightness. The old 50% brightness was almost identical to 100% max brightness, and the old 5% brightness was significantly brighter than 0% brightness. Now, the change in perceptual brightness is now more uniform as you increase or decrease the slider.The brightness slider position should spend most of its time throughout the day near-max now, but that's fine. The brightness of the panel hasn't changed, just the behavior of the brightness slider, and for the better. Other OEMs have had a logarithmic brightness slider since forever, Google just only now caught up with this standard physics-based implementation."

Interesting... but this don't change the fact that the total brightness of g power is less at ≈500 nits than G 5 at ≈600 nits.

I have the same problem on my Moto G7 Power. Hopefully a Moto Agent can chime in.

Hello, brightness levels are tuned for each product to meet design and hardware specs. It's possible that higher brightness/nits on g power or another product might cause other unexpected issues. However, we can always pass your feedback along to our engineers for consideration for future updates or future products. I'm not guaranteeing that there will be any boost to the max brightness on current products but like I said, we'll pass your feedback along.
