    I don't know if this is a hardware or software issue:

    My Z10 light sensor seems to be not very sensitive. Outside in the sun the screen does not get dimmed brighter although I haven't maxed out the brightness in the display settings. Though it does get dimmed visibly when I hold the Z directly in front of a light.

    So at the moment the light sensor is useless for me and I have to dim manually.

    Can you confirm this to be true on your devices? Or is my light sensor malfunctioning?

    By the way on my Bold 9790 I had the brightness on the lowest level and the sensor always found the right setting for me. That was very comfortable.

    The screen should get brighter in strong ambient light. The sensor is below the speaker at the top of the screen. If you cover it the screen should DIM.

    Yes, you're right. If I cover it the screen gets darker. It seems so that it does not get as bright outside as it could in the settings. Maybe it reaches its peak value online in really bright sunlight. But I feel it stays too dark most of the time outside.

    What's your opinion?

    Does your screen stays too dark when you are outside in direct sun light? Although the brightness could be ramped up manually in the display settings to give you a better view on screen?
