Screen brightness issues since update
Rev
Member

Well subject says it all. Since the update to 5.0 my screen brightness comes and goes. It acts a little like the auto backlight feature (which I've always hated) is enabled, but it isn't even that consistent plus I have that feature disabled.

 

This is more than annoying because one of the reasons I selected the Storm was the brightness of the screen.  I have a slight vision issue.

 

I really look forward to you feedback

 

Thanks

you know I've heard this a lot and I believe its meant to do that when in different lighting position so if your outside it automatically will be at high contrast and when your in a shady area it will dim it saves battery life personally I love it hope the storm is for you .

There's a glitch in the 5.0 software that dims when going from portrait to Landscape, just turn it back to portrait untill the screen brightens then flip back to landscape.

I have discovered that when I'm outside or in a high light environment it doesn't glitch. 

 

Can someone tell me where the sensor is that determines the brightness needs is located on the storm?

 

Thanks

I have the auto dim turned on and my unit doesn't do the random dimming.  Don't know if it is a bug or by design.  I can tell you it does it on the S2 I tested also.

It's definitely in the software, When Auto Dim is set to off, the screen should not dim at anytime your using the Storm. It worked fine until 5.0 all the 4.7 versions worked fine, Just another Glitch they need to workout. Sounds like RIM and Microsoft should merge, neither one of them can get it right.
