Xperia Active :: Changing Screen Brightness Started With A Flickering Screen

Feb 16, 2012

My Xperia Active is barely 3 weeks old, running Android version: 2.3.4 and latest build: 4.0.2.A.0.62. My screen brightness is kept at maximum, I have never dropped this phone or abused it and rest of it's functions are running fine. Barely a week in, it seemed to have a faintly flickering screen which I thought might have just been my eyes going. This week, the flickering has been replaced by what I would describe as "breathing" - screen brightness goes from max brightness (100%) to gradual dimness (about 78% brightness) to max brightness again - without me touching anything nor am I running out of power. This happens once in a while throught the day, not constantly. Rather alarming as I am getting very attached to this little phone.

I have been checking the SE forums since the 1st week of ownership, the flickering screen problem has been reported occuring to other SE phone models, including the Mini on which the Active has been based. I have wiped all data from my phone and gave it back to the seller for their tech to figure out. My last option if unrepairable, is to ask the seller to replace the unit. what causes the screen brightness to dim then brighten by itself (despite the latest build and software).

Xperia Active :: Screen Flickering More Visible At Low Brightness

May 29, 2012

I bought my Xperia active last Monday. But last Sunday, I noticed that the screen flickers. I usually use the phone with the brightness setting set to the lowest and that makes the screen flickering more visible. And also I am kinda new in using Android phones and Sony Ericsson phones, so I am no expert in manipulating this device.

Galaxy S6 :: PWM Active On Screen On Full Brightness

Jul 5, 2015

Regardless of ambient light, is there a way to set full brightness on the S6?

Running the stock ROM/kernel, even on full britghtness, the screen can go brighter unless the light sensor detects a high ambient light. I am wondering if its possible to change this.

Currently means PWM is still active on the screen even on full brightness. Same with the note 4 but this was not the case with previous samsung devices. PWM on full brightness is a deal breaker for me so I need to know now or this phone is being sold.

i also face the same problem of flickering screen in my xperia mini. i read through most of the posts and tried the tips given like keeping the screen brightness to maximum, downloading some power control and brightness widgets and setting the brightness to maximum etc. none of these methods are working. I tested with the ambient light sensor by closing wiht my hand after setting the brightness to max also. Still the sensor was playing with the screen brightness. Someone please help me with any good suggestion to resolve this issue. my phone software build no. is 4.0.2.A.0.42. flickering is predominant when the background is light.

Xperia X8 :: Discharging Too Fast - WiFi Enabled / Screen Brightness Medium

Jan 9, 2011

2 weeks before I purchased a SE Xperia X8 and I have a problem with the battery. Android 2.1, Network to GSM only, WiFi enabled only when I'm using the internet and the screen brightness to medium. I have "Advanced Task Killer" on Auto-Kill and "Juice Defender" enabled on Default. I have charged it i think 8-9 times since I got it. I have always plugged it when the phone said that it needs charging. Should I had left it discharge completely? Yesterday, I charged my phone in the afternoon and I didn't use it at all! Today, when I woke up, my battery was at 75% !!! Why is that happening???

Xperia Z5 :: Adaptive Brightness Generates Color Distortion When Unlock Screen

Sep 11, 2015

I'm having an issue with my Z5 Compact when unlocking the screen. (Specially in dark rooms). The colors are totally "washed" for a few seconds, until adaptive brightness starts to work. 

Sometimes in a dark room (like the bedroom) there is a 50% chance or more of this to happen.
To reproduce this: You need to use "adaptive brightness" under settings. And you need to unlock your phone a few times. I'd recommend you to do this using Tapatalk (Dark theme). 
Anyway, I'm posting this because I've received an update yesterday from 32.0.A.4.11 to 32.0.A.5.32 and the issue is still here. Should I replace my device? Or just wait for another firmware?

I keep finding my phone will do random things in my pocket when out  and its really frustrating i had tried changing lots of settings todo with the screen as i thought it was when i got a notification it would wake the phone and my leg would simulate screen presses.
That isnt the case however. I have narrowd it down to when i get in my car and the bluetooth connects to my car radio it makes the touch screen active, the screen does not light up but if you touch it as it connects it will wake the phone.
