My phone becomes too dark in sunlight, I have moved slider to the maximum, the auto brightness unchecked and so also the reduced white white point. Please help

Somewhere!
Have a tough time believing it is due to heat. I live in San Diego which gets quite warm. 86 today. My 12 Pro Max never has that issue. Never happened with my 11 Pro Max either and we had a lot of days over 100 last year. In fact we had several days over 110. My screens have been very easy to see.

Unless I am unaware of something possibly.

My 12 Pro Max did this last week. I was taking video of my grandkids at a skateboard park and the screen got so dark you could not see anything at all. It was bright and sunny, with temp at about 90F. The screen seems normal otherwise. I just wanted to add my comment since it seems this is an unusual thing from the few comments here.

The screen will dim if it does overheat. 110 isn't really that hot for electronics. Now if its in the sun and you are using it doing someone power intensive and its 110 out it my start throttling and such.
