Problem 1: Hi guys! I just received my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge yesterday and I’m actually enjoying everything about it. It’s design is just superb and it’s performance, awesome. It’s probably the best device Samsung ever produced yet and for me, it’s the phone of the year! There is, however, one thing I noticed; it’s screen brightness still adjusts even if auto brightness is disabled and the screen is set to the maximum level of brightness. When I’m in a well-lit environment, the screen becomes even brighter, however, when in poor lighting, the screen also goes dim. My old Samsung doesn’t do this so I’m just curious to know if this is normal or what. Thanks. — Juve
Problem 2: I upgraded from S4 to Galaxy S6 Edge and this is my fourth Samsung phone. It’s working fine and all but I love to make use of its amazing display so 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. Of course, I double-checked the settings and auto brightness is off while screen brightness is set to the highest level. Is this a hardware issue or something? I called Samsung but its reps don’t know about this either. It’s not really a problem but I’m a bit worried that it might be a hardware issue. Please let me know. Thanks.
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.
