    While gaming for about 30 minutes on full brightens the screen dims down to like half way if I had to guess.. auto brightness turned off.. is this some kind of feature when overheating? Anyone else experience screen dimming after some use while brightness set to max? Game is world of tanks...

    probably a idle thing, it just dims when screens been untouched for a certain amount a time no?

    If it's not being caused by screen timeout then it could be a heating thing yeah I remember some older Devices doing it (N5, OP2) when under load. Quite annoying really. Haven't had it happen on this though.

    It's not screen timeout, I'm constantly touching and using the screen. Like the screen brightness is already weak compared to my last oled screen and now this...

    Battery low left under certain point? Or maybe night mode?

    Don’t know exactly about phone CPU, but on Laptop CPU, “overheating” started with CPU throttling that effects the performance like FPS drops and lag, and if it reach over certain point (I think 100 Celsius on laptop) it would shut the system down automatically.

    Yeah I know all that, just curious if anyone else experienced anything similar.. it's like as if my hand covers the light sensor and it dims down but auto brightness is switched off... Obviously that's not the case because my hand is there for 30 minutes.

    Yea I've been having the same problem as well. It's like you said it feels like my hand covered the sensor and the screen dims to halfway. I know it dims to halfway because when I adjust the brightness there's no effect until more than half. Been searching for a solution for a while now, super annoying to deal with.

    Thanks for letting us know. Did you have any other apps running in the background? If this happens again, or with other games, sending us a link to the log would be helpful!

    I have only tested on world of tanks , haven't played other games, I usually clear all background apps before turning game on, happens every time after like 20-30 minutes. Had only happened while running the game so far.

    Yep, mine still keeps doing it. Rly annoying when you're in a bright place and need full brightness and it dims down on you..
     
  15. I have the same problem. If i use youtube or play Vainglory or other games, after 5-20 min brightens the screen dims down to like halfway. After restart phone, all ok. If i start play again dims down.

    Razer tsk tsk tsk. I wouldnt touch this brand in the future. You guys should help advocate the news. Anyway I was at the San Francisco westfield mall. I found a lawyer’s advertising. This thing is a few feet away from the razer store. What an irony.

  17. Yes my Razer phone does this after around 5/10 mins while playing any game or just using in general , also it's a nightmare while watching Netflix , this so called top line phone gets rather HOT when using it , Gunna take this Razer phone to a three shop , I've been in contact with Razer they reply was take the phone to a three shop & if it's within 30 days they have to exchange it , we'll see I'll let you all know by the end of today.

    I heard from other user yes it’s due temperature but I couldn’t find it yet even over one hour playing pub...is there any other intensive mobile games? Tried also soccer and racing games, it was some screen dimming but very rarely for a second on loading screen when I’m not touching it, maybe it’s sleeping mode issue. Btw adaptive brightness is off to get brighter screen on mine.
     
  19. Does yo
    Your Razer phone
    Your Razer phone , does the screen flicker all of the time in all apps ?

    No...at all. It’s funny that I feel like on Razer Blade thread, on optimus bugs. When I saw teardown i feel like the thermal pipes is similar with a laptop cooling system than a phone though. Btw forget to mention I was also watching streams movies on it but not from Netflix. Maybe I’ll keep looking on it since I think it’s my 10 days with the phone.
