a friend of mine bought a Nokia Lumia 620. Everything is fine except the brightness of the display, due to its fluctuation when set to automatic. Because of this behavior we send the, in our opinion broken, unit back to store, but nevertheless the second Lumia 620 shows the exact same behavior. It is really annoying and it happens anytime and anywhere even if nothing in the room is changed regarding to illumination.
So is this behavior by "design" or was my friend in bad luck and got two broken units in a row?

Well, the proximity sensor is quite sensitive and that is why probably the brightness changes all the time. That is what i have noticed. If you pay attention to it, the sensor is between the front face camera and the speaker. You can test it yourself by tilting the phone or covering it and you will see that indeed the proximity sensor is very sensitive.

Thanks for your reply. That the sensor is very sensitive was also my first thought, but even in an high illuminated room or in sunlight the brightness switches to the lowest level sometimes. In this case the screen is hardly readable. The other way round is also happening, low ambient light but highest possible display brightness. I can't imagine this behavior is wanted by Nokia.

Yes I saw this too and we checked it, but unfortunately it didn't solve the issue. As far as I know this option is only a brightness "boost" in direct sunlight. Maybe the brightness sensor is too sensitive in general and Nokia will fix this sometime in the future, nonetheless as it is now it seems to me pretty randomly.

I too noticed this and subsequently turned off automatic brightness adjustment. I now use 'low' brightness and find it bright enough during the day, night, and everything in between. I have the sunlight reading setting enabled but haven't seen any evidence that it actually works, ie screen brightness has yet to increase while in direct sunlight.
