Is there any way to tell whether or not HDR has actually been engaged when playing back an HDR video file on the phone?   There's no pop-up saying HDR like on the TV.   I'm using vlc which states that it supports HDR but without a visual indication I don't know for sure whether HDR has actually been engaged.

I only notice in my case that the brightness of the phone automatically goes up if I am playing HDR content.

I tried looking for that and looking for the brightness to drop when I exit the video but I couldn't tell a difference. We really need a pop-up like they have on TV's that let's us know HDR had been engaged.
