★ How to Fix the Auto Brightness Glitch/Bug on Galaxy S6 Edge?
When a few Galaxy fans upgrade their cell phones to S6 Edge and discover the auto brightness problem happen to their new devices. One Android S6 Edge user reported, I set the screen brightness to the max and turned off auto brightness. The display should not auto adjust regardless whether I’m in a dark area or in a well-lit environment but S6 Edge does. Other S6 edge users also reported that they have turned the ‘Auto brightness’ off and set the screen brightness to the highest level, while they go to a low-light area and they notice the screen dims. The phone automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen depending on the amount of receiving light even though you turn off the auto brightness. It can be considered as a S6 Edge glitch or bug, and factory or hard reset won’t work and no ways to fix it. Anyway, the phone bug is far from being annoying, but if you pursuit perfection, you can wait until Samsung releases a patch to address this auto brightness issue.
