We live in a 2yo home and we are still choosing the lighting. We have this app in all our phones, I have a Samsung A5 2015 and she has an s7 edge. It is very useful to compare different lightings. Another reason to choose a 2014 samsung over a newer "specky" phone from google or others (knox is the first one). If pixel, nexus or bqs don't have color sensor don't blame this app!
Samsung S5 Active SM-G870W works great, including colour temperature measurement Samsung S2 SGH-T989D works great also, but the phone does not have a sensor to measure colour temperature. Note that the app uses the light sensor NOT the camera. The light sensor is ALWAYS on the same side of the phone as the screen. You cannot switch to the "other camera" and it is not a design flaw in the app. That is the way phones are made.
Brilliant app on all my Samsung devices. However my Samsung S8 just updated to Oreo and I think this may have stopped the colour temp function! Hence now only 3 stars
Not functional on LG phone. The camera auto adjusts to brightness and app has no control. The color temp is also inexplicably broken.
Like it a lot. Very accurate. People, please read the instructions...it's not that hard. Why blame the app if your phone is inadequate. Samsung note 3
This app was great but know the color won't work on Google pixel XL . Just says N/A no matter if it is 6500k, 2800k or 5000k. Will change rating when it's fixed
V2.6 changes: Bugfixes and graphing function.
Lux Meter is a simple light meter for measuring illuminance intensity (lux, fc).
