Works great, but like others have said, it behaves like malware in that it just won't turn off. I turn it off with the power icon in the notification screen, and it turns itself back on the next time I wake my phone. You can't close the app completely either by swiping it away like most apps. I have to go into the system application manager to force kill it and even then sometimes it restarts itself.
Interferes with other, unrelated apps This app works well for monitoring display brightness, but it interferes with other apps for no reason. I tried signing up for Google Play Music Family and I could not sign up. I googled the error and found out that for some reason, lux was interfering with the sign-up. I had to uninstall lux, and then I was able to sign up for Google Play Music Family. Please look into this.
App installation issue It's mandatory to pause Lux Auto Brightness whenever I am installing apps from sources other than Play Store or else the 'Install' option freezes and hence, it's a ★ ★ ★ from me until this issue is fixed. However, I must agree that I adore the option that allows me to set the minimum screen brightness and I also appreciate the option to reduce the screen brightness manually beyond default android zero level and even up to -100% which makes reading in a dark room really easy on the eyes.
I mean it works, it is what it is, but there's a bug that keeps resetting me to 0 backlight. It gets so annoying, idk whats causing it. There's no interval, its erratic. Sometimes it works perfectly, sometimes it resets 20 times in 60 seconds.
Fantastic App is meant for phones such as nexus 6p, which struggle in keeping the right brightness in auto mode. Nexus 6p sets to lowest brightness in auto mode, this app has profiles which help nexus 6p to set right brightness
Great app but needs further improvements This app is just what I need! However I also have the same problems with screen overlays. But what's most annoying is that all screenshots are darker if you don't turn off the app when you take them.
- Many fixes, including sleep list not working on Android 5.0 and up
- Rename 'Auto' to 'Smart'
- Updated translations
- If using plug-ins, please check that Lux has been granted root access
