Galaxy s7 screen dimming???

Views: 705 Replies: 6
I have a brand new s7. I love it except I hate the keyboard (auto correct/replace)

And my biggest issue...

The screen keeps going dim off and on...I have the brightness turned the whole way up with the auto adjust shut off...but when I'm in a text screen that has alot of white I notice it will dim off and on. I haven't noticed it when watching shows. But it's really annoying when texting or anything of that nature.

Has anyone else had this problem? I reallyou dont want to have to send the phone back but it's looking that way....

Welcome to MobiFAQ! Are any power saving modes turned on? And you don't have Smart Stay on, do you?

Me too! I had the problem of dimming with the s6 and it drove me nuts. Now the s7 same thing. And I have noticed it happens always while texting. I tried using Verizon texting and its the same issue.

Welcome to MobiFAQ! Are any power saving modes turned on? And you don't have Smart Stay on, do you?I had mine on and now the problem seems to have gone away. I hope it lasts. How did you know this and why would it affect the dimming?

Which did you have on? Power Saving or Smart Stay? I remember this because I've seen it mentioned a few times on this forum (you may have noticed that I'm on here a lot--I may have a problem). Power Saving might affect the duration the lockscreen is visible because it's trying to minimize power usage, so dimming and then shutting the screen off sooner would make sense. And Smart Stay is supposed to detect when you're looking at the screen or not, so if you look away, it will detect that and shut the screen off.

Every phone or device in the world stays at the setting you want except the damn s6 and s7. Why?
