    went to the park today. sat down for a bit to browse the phone. after a little bit, the screen seemed to go to around half brightness. the brightness was set to auto and showed being maxed. i tried moving the brightness slider, and it would jump back to full. it was acting weird. i couldnt move the brightness slider. does the brightness get over-riden if the phone gets too hot? it was 80 degrees today.
    worked ok afterward, but not earlier in the sun.

    I tend to think its the screen sensors doing their job. Whats your daily driver?

    Mine does the same thing sometimes. When it does, the white parts on the screen don't even look white anymore, they have a grayish look to them.

    It is normal. I have the s7 also. The brightness slider bar is supposed to increase under the sun to make sure the screen is visible to the user. That said, the screen IS supposed to get brighter under the sun. So what is happening for you is totally normal.

    Also the phone is gonna naturally get hot because its metal and glass under sun.
