How do I adjust the display settings?
Change the display settings on your Android™ 5.0 Lollipop device by following the steps below:
- Touch Settings
- Touch Display
- Select the desired option:
Move the slider to set the brightness level on your device.
Turn on adaptive brightness to automatically optimize brightness level on your device based on the available light around you. Adaptive brightness is on by default. You can still adjust your brightness when needed.
Important Note: When Adaptive brightness is enabled, if you then lower the brightness level to the minimum, the screen may appear to go completely black.
To recover, try one or more of the following:
- Push power button
- Move your device to a well-lit area. It can take up to few minutes before screen becomes bright.
- Let phone stay idle for few minutes, so it goes to sleep state. Then, press power button momentarily to bring phone to active state from sleep state. On the screen, drag one finger from top to bottom twice slowly. This will open quick settings from the notification bar. Approximately one inch below from the top of the screen and one inch from left, touch and drag finger from left to right in straight line to increase the brightness.
After screen is bright enough to be used, it is recommended that you do not set the brightness setting to minimum setting if adaptive brightness is enabled.
