    Default LG G3 Adjusting Brightness on its own even with auto brightness checked off

    Ok I've noticed and I have my auto brightness checked off and my brightness level at 70 percent.. Why is it that I notice on home screen and while using apps that my back light dims just a tad every so often.. Its like the screen dims about 10-15 percent quite often.. The first phone I exchanged for another one and this one does the same thing. Only thing I did n changed on the phone is that it's running Art.

    It does run at times a little mild to warm but not hot.. Can it be that it dims for it won't overheat but then this phone would be flawed

    Here's a review from a site no wonder...


    Our only minor grumble came when using the display in really bright conditions. Once the phone warms up, the display brightness drastically reduces to prevent overheating and becomes far less legible in bright, sunny conditions. After a few minutes, the brightness often dims even more although the indicated brightness percentage level doesn't change. This could be an unfortunate by-product of packing so many pixels into one screen, prompting militant power-saving measures from the LG G3.

    I'm having problems too. Setting base brightness with slider while in auto dim mode does nothing. Screen is too dim. Might be a deal breaker for me as I work outside all day but I just got the phone tonight so we'll see.

    I have issues at times as well. For example some apps for example Instagram automatically turn up the brightness and instantly when I leave it the brightness goes back to normal. I use auto brightness.

    The ATT unit I played with dimmed every time I went to the gallery via icon within the stock camera app.

    If u want to do a test turn the screen on n no matter what ur doing after two seconds or three seconds it will dim like 10-15 percent down on its own always.. Just weird it's like a safety features it has or something that reduces power by dimming it n adjusting after two seconds

    yep I will do it if you have the brightness above 60 percent .. I like to keep my brightness up above 70 percent but then my battery wont last long .. definitely wont get 4 hr on screen time since this display is a little dim.. but it does auto dim after 5 seconds every time u turn it on .. when u have brightness above 60

    I was having this same issue and tried turning off the auto brightness control as well as battery saver, restarted device, etc. However when playing a video I started tapping around the screen and found that if you tap and drag your finger up or down on the right half of the screen you will turn the volume up or down. However, if you tap on the left half of the vid the brightness control appears and goes up or down. All fixed. All vids at max brightness now. Hope this helps.

    It's not about the video. It's about the brightness adjusting itself at whatever screen ur at after u tunred on ur phone after five second after it bumps down the brightness automatically .. There's even a article that states this

    I have a Verizon G3 and just did a little test with manual brightness set to 90%. I turned on my screen and waited for it to adjust automatically, but it stayed just as bright. No dimming like you're stating.


    Now to go back down to 60% auto before my eyes burn away.

    That's one of the major drawbacks of the G3. Because the device heats up so easily, lg has built in automatic screen dimming in an effort to cool the phone down. If the device gets warm enough, especially while playing videos, a pop-up warning box will appear on the screen, effectively interrupting your video. The intrusion is necessary due to a design flaw.
