Has anyone else noticed that their screen dims while using Google maps on the s22 Ultra?
If I turn off adaptive brightness and turn the screen brightness all the way up, within about 15 seconds of opening Google maps the screen dims down yet the slider doesn't move. When I close out Google maps within about 15 seconds the screen brightens back up.
It also does it with the Waze app. I thought the phone was defective and ordered a new one and before I would take it I told the technician at the Samsung store to open it and test it for me. The brand new one did the same exact thing as did his s22 Ultra.
What's is that if you minimize the screen size of Google maps and run another app, Google maps brightens up again. It seems to only happen while it's in full screen. It's actually very dangerous if you're trying to use navigation.
I have this problem too. And not just on Google Maps. In other applications too. Sometimes in cloudy weather I can hardly see what is on the screen. The brightness is set to 100%. I hope this gets fixed. I don't want to have that kind of problem on a $1,000 phone.
This has been happening to me since the S20. My S22 Ultra does the same thing. Samsung does this to save battery and heat. It’s ridiculous. Getting rid of it and switching to iPhone. Ever since LG got out of the mobile game, we don’t have a lot of flagship choices in the US anymore. Samsung knows they can do this stuff now with minimal competition. They truly don’t care anymore. Stop buying Samsung products.
