Always on Display dims in my pocket

    On my new S7 the Always on Display dims when the phone is in my pocket, making it difficult to read without turning the screen on, defeating the purpose. If the light sensor is covered, the next minute when the clock moves it dims. Then if the light sensor is uncovered the next minute when the clock moves again if goes bright again. I tried disabling the Keep Screen Off In Pocket feature but seems to do this either way. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Make sure your Brightness is not set to auto.

    I think that is the way it was meant to work. If the sensor is totally covered and everything is completely black, it probably thinks it's in a drawer or somewhere it doesn't need to be on. Only guessing, but I noticed it too.

    Indeed, it is suppose to turn off when the phone is facing down, in a pants pocket, etc.

    Also goes blank in a case. Nice to see some engineering decisions that are actually sensible!!
