Sprint HTC Hero :: Light Sensor And Screen Intensity Linearity

Dec 30, 2009

I've noticed that when viewing the screen in a darkened room that the screen is actually too dark. Yet in a normal setting that the screen is correctly lit. I've tried increasing the intensity to maximum with the sensor enabled and it's still to dark in the darkened room. Now, I've disabled the sensor entirely and the screen just runs wide open all the time - day or night.

Has anyone else felt that it was too dark in the darkened setting? I'm wondering if there is a setting (probably not yet written for the phone/OS) to vary how linear the light sensor is at darker levels? Maybe a 'minimum darkness' adjustment?

Android :: No Light Sensor / Proximity Sensor Detected On Hero?

Feb 8, 2010

I have a HTC Hero here, and when I tried to get the list of available sensors on the device by calling ((SensorManager) getSystemService (Context.SENSOR_SERVICE)) .getSensorList(Sensor.TYPE_ALL); I get only the following sensors: D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: BMA150 3-axis Accelerometer, handle=0 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 3-axis Magnetic field sensor, handle=1 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 Orientation sensor, handle=2 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 Temperature sensor, handle=3 According to the specs, there should be a light and a proximity sensor on the Hero, and I've seen it in action (the automatic screen brightness adjustment) - so at least the ambient light sensor is definitely there. My question is then, why doesn't the getSensorList return for me the light and the proximity sensors?

HTC Hero :: Ambient Light Sensor

Aug 9, 2009

I've seen claims that the Hero has a light sensor, and I see the "automatic" backlight enabled in Settings, but I'm not seeing much in the way of backlight adjustment occurring.

Even in an otherwise dark room, the backlight seems very bright. Occasionally I see the backlight go dim and then almost immediately come back up.

Motorola Droid :: Light Sensor Or Timer Dims Screen Up And Down During Video Playback

Nov 7, 2009

I am not sure which is the culprit, but while playing back video or even at random times, the screen shifts lighter or darker seemingly at random, and one time during a video playback on the TV.com app, it went black altogether. I am not sure whether it is the timer or the ambient light sensor, but I am tempted to turn the sensor off and push the timer back a lot.

Sprint HTC Hero :: MMS Settings - Screen Light Up When Receive Text Message?

Dec 5, 2009

The only thing that I've found that I dislike about this phone is the way it alerts you about new text messages. Is there a way to make your phones screen light up when you receive a text message? Also is there a way to set a reminder like every few minutes that you have a text message? Say if you receive a text message while you're away from the phone then two minutes later the phone vibrates or sounds to remind you that you have a new text.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Proximity Sensor With 2.1

May 21, 2010

I had real problems until with my phone until I loaded the proximity sensor. I had a little trouble getting it to work but when it did, it remedied the one thing that I disliked about the Hero. I loaded 2.1 yesterday and generally I like it EXCEPT I cannot get the proximity sensor app to work again. Has any one else had this issue? Suggestions?

Android :: Light Sensor On The Nexus One

May 20, 2010

I'm having some troubles with the light sensor on the Nexus One.

AFAIK, the proper way to read the measures of a sensor is registering a SensorListener through the SensorManager and then wait for the readings on the onSensorChanged method.

My main problem is that the light sensor don't seem very accurate (the readings jump a lot) and I don't get the first reading until the lighting conditions change. I have to change the phone orientation, go outdoors or hide the sensor with my fingers or otherwise I don't receive any value. Is there any way to increase the accuracy or, even more important, to force an initial reading?

BTW, I have tried with SensorManager.SENSOR_DELAY_FASTEST but I haven't noticed any change.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Proximity Sensor - Hardware Or Software Based?

Well, I know its software also, but is it hardware too? Because if not, then I was thinking, couldn't HTC just add it later on if they wanted it to?

Android :: Disable Light Sensor During Call

Nov 24, 2010

When you talk on the phone in Android the light sensor is working. If you cover the top left corner of the screen, the display turns black and you can't see anything. I would like to cancel that feature and I tried working with Android Sensors and the Light Sensor but it is not working. This is my code:

senMgrLight=(SensorManager)getSystemService(Context.SENSOR_SERVICE);
senMgrLight.registerListener(onSensorListener,
senMgrLight.getDefaultSensor(Sensor.TYPE_LIGHT),
SensorManager.SENSOR_DELAY_FASTEST);

HTC Desire :: Ambient Light Sensor Not Working

Apr 23, 2010

I've got an HTC Desire from a T-Mobile store 3 weeks ago. The ambient light sensor has never worked and it's enabled on the display settings.

I went back to the T-Mobile store and they tried a brand new unit. Unfortunately, that one also seem to have the same issue. Then I called the HTC technical support and they say there are no reports on such kind of issue.

If not, does the display brightness get adjusted quickly or slowly?

Samsung Behold 2 :: Front Light Sensor

Jun 10, 2010

Have an Issue. Whenever i am in a call if i take the phone away from my ear the screen doesnt turn on. It does this 98%of the time or only when i need to use the keypad during a call. It does this in stock form and also using open home. I always keep the screen clean. Is there a fix for this? I am not able to get my bh2 to connect to a pc so i cant root or install custom roms. Also the keyboard lag is rediculous. I tried better keyboard and it was just as bad if not worse.

Feb 15, 2010

I am writing a program and I am able to get the light sensor value and current battery level, but only the light value changes and when the battery level changes. Is there a way to get these two values anytime? Like when a user runs my program, I would like to grab the current values right away instead of having to wait for them to change.

HTC Hero :: Ability To Light Up The Screen For New Notifications

Oct 17, 2009

I'm using the new US version of HTC Hero (I believe it's running 1.5) and I noticed the following pretty annoying problem that I cannot seem to tweak.

If a new calendar event or alarm come in, the screen briefly lights up to show what the message is, and then turns off after a short while. That way, I don't have to turn it on, pull down the protective screen, then the notification bar, etc.

However, with email, SMS, gtalk, and the like, the screen doesn't light up. There are settings for having a sound or vibrate, neither of which light up the screen. When I press the Menu or power button, the new notification sits happily in both the lower part of the screen and the notification area.

Nexus :: Light Sensor Position In Nexus One

Jan 15, 2010

Can anyone tell me where the light sensor is positioned on the Nexus One? One of the reasons I returned the Droid was I hated how the light sensor was positioned in the upper right corner. My fingers would frequently block it causing the auto-brightness to change unnecessarily and annoyingly. I know on the Droid Eris it is on the left and I'm hoping HTC did the same with the Nexus One.
