    I'm trying to figure out how many LG phones actually have an Ambient light sensor for features like automatic brightness.

    Thanks, shame on LG for leaving out a simple useful tool in 95% of their phones. They only put them in flagship devices.

    looking and messing with the build prop. it has the toggle to enable or disable it. the issue is. it does nothng. there can possibly be an app that may be able to use the camera but that in turn will kill the battery. so recommend a brightness widget and do it yourself.

    The only thing the auto bright does is set the brightness level to a set default which I believe is 50.

    If you take the spirit and go from dim light to bright light or vice versa the brightness remains the same due to not having the sensor. Most of LG's low to midrange phones are missing the ambient sensor. One of the corners they cut to sell phones cheap lol.
