    Hey. Installed the update yesterday and now my auto brightness seems to be messed up. It always jumps to ether completely dark or completely bright after a few locks-unlocks. What's the right way to "calibrate" the sensor, maybe that helps?

    Restarting the device didn't help at all by the way.

    Thanks!

    Sebastian

    I noticed this with beta 4 and 5. It's a bug that just never got fixed, I guess.

    Went to 100% brightness for me when I first turned it on with 7.1 but now seems fine again.

    I wish that screen brightness wasn't in control centre at all. Even on 7.0.4 the brightness seemed to be altered just by using control centre to switch Wifi on and off etc.

    Toggle auto-brightness off, and then adjust the brightness slider to the minimum setting when you're in a dark room.

    For me it is working fine, never had issues

    Try this:

    1. turn off auto-brightness
    2. Go to a room with low light
    3. slide the brightness slider all the way to the left
    4. Turn auto-brightness on

    The slider should automatically slide back to the right once it detects ambient light.
