    I have a Pixel 3a and was just updated to Android 12. I have the lock screen set to show the digital clock. With the update the brightness of the clock is very low and I can't find any settings to make it brighter. I do see night mode and that's not the problem.

    No problems in my 3a XL. Any power-saving modes turned on? Or is anything blocking the ambient light sensor at the top of the screen (which might cause the screen to auto-dim, thinking that you're in a very dark room)?

    After I posted I noticed that after a few minutes it became brighter. I tested it a few times and this seems to be it's working on my phone. I would like it to be at normal brightness immediately

    Ok, is Adaptive Brightness turned on? If so, turn it off and see if the behavior persists.

    Sometimes an issue is small enough that time and effort to solve it are not worth it.
    At this point I will just live with it 🤣

    I HATE this effing lock screen. Why oh why did they eff this up so badly? So I went from being able to glance at my phone and see time, temp, and charge status. Now I get these freakin' digits for the BLIND....which then dim horribly....unless I get a notification, when everything kind of gets back to normal. And I'm reading that it can't be changed. Ugh. Ready for a hack! lol

    What if you just double-tap the screen (assuming you have the double-tap feature turned on)? On my 6 Pro, if I double-tap, I get my lockscreen in full brightness, along with the wallpaper in the background (as opposed to the screen with the totally black background).

    Yes, you can clearly do that. The beauty of just glancing at the phone while it's just sitting there is what is nice. I can still do that, and see the time from across two rooms. Until it dims out.

    Oh, so you have the "Always show time and info" option turned on in the Lock Screen system settings?
