HTC :: Nexus One Screen And Battery Life / Do You Use Auto Brightness?
Jan 11, 2010
Just curious who is using auto brightness? I'm trying to determine if better (ie. significantly) for battery life to use the auto brightness feature turned on, or if better to leave it on say 50% brightness at all times.The auto brightness is a bit annoying more distracting But I'd be willing to live with it if proven to be a ton better on battery life.My battery was sucking down real fast, and has brightly about 2/3rd full so I turned on auto brightness but found out the IM ("Hi AIM" app)i had running in the brackground was what was causing the major battery drain.Any one run actual tests on auto-brightness vs manual brightness?
auto screen brightness when I am outside and receive a call is so bad that I cannot see who is calling me . So I use max brightness when outside . Is there anyway way to change/adjust the auto screen brightness
I'm running stock 5.1.1, and even though my auto brightness is off my phone occasionally dims my display when it's on full brightness. It's not running particularly hot (37 degrees C according to my battery widget) so I don't know what's causing it to dim.
I have the phone setup to auto brightness. sometimes the brightness will go up and then go back down. is the sensor just sensitive and detecting the angle changes of the phone relative to the room lighting?
I have an strange, occasional problem with screen brightness. This problem has survived a factory reset and flash from Android 5.0.x to 5.1.x. I had also recently cleared the partition cache.
My screen sometimes goes very dim. I keep brightness on Auto. However, when this happens, cycling brightness to full makes no difference to the dim screen. Furthermore, the screen is dim only in some instances, such as: ChromeNova Launcher home screenSome other apps (can't recall which)
In other places, I see full brightness. For example, the notification shade is in full brightness (or whatever Auto sets it too).
The other day, I was outside in bright sunlight. My browser suddenly went dim, almost unreadable. I clicked home - dim. I pulled the notification shade down - full brightness. Pulled notifications back up - dim again. On restart, everything is fine again.
I use Screen Filter, but it was not on. In fact, turning it on darkens the screen even further.
I think I've noticed it a few times before, but tonight I've been able to replicate it on purpose. I have my brightness at close to it's dimmest setting, yet in direct sunlight the screen goes to max brightness; hold it in the shade and it goes back dim.
My S6 keeps randomly changing brightness even though auto brightness is off. And so I found this option via search within settings, which may very well be exactly what I was looking for but couldn't seem find it in the settings menu in developer option(which has already been enabled).....
On my 32G iphone 4, the auto brightness option gives a very dim screen in a dark room. Tried to search a little, seems many users reported the same behavior. I wonder if this is the same to every iphone 4 out there. This is very annoying, making the phone almost unusable in dark environment.
The sony ericsson xperia mini st15i was really a pocket sized monster but pls sony put up an option to turn off the brightness auto adjusting.. everything was good and i can even say perfect just that that brightness sensor ****** me off because at places with low lighting, the screen flickers because of the brightness auto adjust...
I have my newly purchased yesterday Galaxy S6 Edge for Verizon and auto-brightness is turned off. However, when I go into a dark environment my phone screen dims itself even though the auto feature is turned off.
When in a dark environment I can can hit the phones camera sensor with a flashlight and the screen returns to full brightness. When the screen is then locked and unlocked again it will return to the dim setting.
Extremely frustrating considering how beautiful the S6 Edges screen is. Wondering if there is a fix I can do now, waiting for an OTA update, or just return the phone and get something else.
I have been getting pretty good battery life, but was wondering if I should be using 3G or LTE on the N5. I know the N5 has envelope tracking, but does that really work? I have looked around and there isn't much info about this. There is quite a bit of info for other phones, but almost nothing for the N5.
I usually get an LTE signal of one to two bars; around 98 to 110 dBm and 30 to 40 asu. 3G varies from two to four full bars; 85 to 100 dBm and around 10 asu. This is at my home on AT&T. I'm almost always connected to WiFi, though.Battery life has been pretty good. Usually around three to four hours of screen on time from 100% to 30%, with some standby time.
Since T-Mobile offers unlimited streaming for many of the music services like Slacker, DI, Sky.fm that I subscribe to I wonder streaming them on LTE if it uses less battery life than streaming them on WiFi on 5 Ghz?
I'm getting ready to buy one as I've done away with AT&T + the iPhone 3GS (Love it but too expensive), so I jumped ship to the Tmobile and thinking about getting a Nexus One.My big question is, what is the battery life like on this device? With respectable backlight brightness (50%) to get the daily pop from the screen but what is your typical battery life like?Also can anyone recommend a good headphone for the nexus one (hopefully pressing a button to scroll to the next song) and what music app to use to play songs?
I wanted to start using android pay so I decided to flash back to a stock rom instead of aosp rom. I flashed my Nexus 6 to 6.0.1, everything went fine and I set my phone back up the way I wanted. Shortly after that I would turn my phone to see my lockscreen and my screen brightness would go to full brightness until I unlocked my phone then it would bring the brightness down to a normal level for light the phone was receiving. Then it would do this no matter if I would in a dark room, in direct sunlight or in a room with average lit lights.
I am on Tmobile so I thought maybe it was the firmware, even though it shouldn't matter. So I flashed back to LYZ28N and I let the phone upgrade to MRA58X and had the same issue.
I have my brightness slider just over the Wifi icon on the toggles in the notification shade. I do have auto brightness turned on . Ambient screen is off.
Now I see that MRA58X is available as a download I will try to flash straight to that.
My screen is always at max brightness but sometimes, like once or twice a week, i see it "bounce" slightly to a "just a bit" brighter level. it happens only once, so it's not "flickering" but given it's set at max brightness i wonder why this is happening?
I came from a Nexus 5 and had to always leave my screen brightness on about 1/3 in order to preserve battery. After playing with my 6P for over a month, I feel like the battery can handle a brighter setting (with my usage). But, I have concerns about burn-in if I put the setting too high since this is an AMOLED panel. What brightness settings are you using and have you had any issues with burn-in?
Finally got around to sticking my SIM card into my 6P and decided to leave it off the charger over night to see how much battery percentage it would take away. I fell asleep with the battery at 55% and awoke with it around 30%. Looking at the battery usage, cell standby is consuming more of the battery than anything else. I've seen this bug in previous versions of Android, but have not heard anything about it with 6.0. Is my phone bad?
I've always wanted a device with an AMOLED display, my Vita uses an OLED display and it's really, really nice. I've just ordered a Nexus 6P, which should come tomorrow, and was wondering about how much battery there is to be saved from using apps that mostly display white text on a black background.Since most the pixels won't be used, it seems to make sense that the screen would pull only a very small amount of power, right.
From a few days I have noticed that Google play services is totally draining my nexus 6 battery even though I have closed all apps like play music and play newsstand..I have now closed my location services and the Google now cards and after that its slightly better but then what's the point of having a nexus 6 if I can't use these features..
Iíve got a BlackBerry Curve 8900 (ATT, running 220.127.116.11), and have had it since Oct. 2009. Battery life has always been OK - 24 to 48 hrs. between recharges.
Today though, after pulling it off the charger this morning around 8:00 a.m., Iíve noticed that Iím down to about 5% charge by 2:30 p.m. I have made no phone calls today, and have only sent/received a couple texts and recíd two emails. I've never used a holster, have downloaded no apps, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are both off. No keys appear to be sticking. Absolutely nothing, to my knowledge, of any significance has changed on the phone since October, yet all of a sudden --literally, overnight --I am experiencing this greatly diminished battery life. The only even remotely precipitating factor I can think of is that I did a battery pull yesterday, after deleting some old photos and emails.
Iíve searched the forum, and most of the suggestions are along the lines of ďturn off bluetooth/wi-fi/update OS,Ē but as noted, I never used those anyhow, and the OS has always been good to me.
just got my nexus 6 today and I've noticed that when lowering my brightness really low the screen starts becoming pink. Is there a fix to this. Some say it is a feature but I've never really seen this on other phones and personally the pink hue is bothering me quite a bit.
battery life for the Storm 2 , in my opinion is OK running .320 and not to sound arrogant or jerky, cause Im a humble guy, but battery life on my Tank's Hybrid ACT 2 (.497) 95X0 hass been really great.
is battery life between the Storm 1 (newest build) and Storm 2 really that much different? Think about it.Well, I dont think that much.I think the same if not better especially with ACT 2.This certainly isnt an advertisement for my Hybrid so I apologize in advace -- please read on.
What we dont think about is this.The Storm 1 's click needed no energy, just the enrgy from our fingers , right? Well the Storm 2's click was revamped using piezo technology (genius!) to give us this hassle free click which is 10 times better to say the least. What WE dont think about is that this NEW technology in the Storm 2 is electronic and requires a Power source which is the battery. of course point being is that:
1.) we dont realize how many times we click the screen a day and
2.) how much battery energy is actually used to power the screen click. The Storm 2 is ALMOST the same phone -- its the same CPU.we do have more built in memory and a newer screen (way better color saturation, the Storm 1 was a very cold color scheme, very blueish tint)So in turn, we must recognize the fact that we have the same if not better battery life with the same battery and MORE energy being used to power the phone (screen clicks)
Now I believe this supports my claim.I BELIEVE the "CLICK" is partly controlled by the OS's power scheme.I believe the OS talks to the battery and the phone to manage the power used to "click" this is why we ALL see an inconsistent screen click softer but yet more responsive or "smart" after a fresh charge and the later in the day, maybe a more lazy click still a "satisfactory" click, but yet and not to be ignored, a different click.Of course I will agree that different builds and/or .cods will control the click, but I believe it only controls the "default" click set forth buy that build number.ie. .320 vs .428 or .428 vs .464 or .464 vs .497
Just my 2 cents to throw in so when we all, including myself, complain about a slightly different screen click throughout the day and battery life that isnt where we want it to be.I always keep in mind "Hey RIM, not to shabby of a job keeping battery life similar to the Storm 1 considering we run more apps (due to more memory) and ALL of the thousands of screen clicks we make everyday"
I have just upgraded my phone to the 9900 bold, I wish I could disable the touch screen or have an auto locking facility? I cant find it. Also the battery life is only about 50% of my 9600 - not what I expected given that Blackberry are reknown for the battery life
I always use WhatsApp web. Before getting my Lumia 950 I used Android: when I received notifications on WhatsApp web the screen of the phone remained off so the battery wasn't suffering much.
On WP I first turned off the notifications on lock screen: then I realized it wasn't even making sounds nor vibrate! Then I turned the banner in WhatsApp notifications settings off: now the notifications are there without turning on the screen, but I have no banner even when the phone is unlocked.
Is there another way to prevent for every app the screen from turning on when locked and a notification arrives, and show normal banners when unlocked?
