Google has long supported the Android feature that allows you to increase the comfort of using your smartphone in the evening or during the night hours. It turns out that owners of Xperia smartphones after upgrading to Android Oreo can say goodbye to it.
Sony Xperia XA1 series smartphones have a very useful function that allows users to reduce or completely reduce the blue light emitted by the device display. In recent years, this type of option has become very popular on Android and now everyone can use it – I use this type of solution practically every evening through a set schedule. With the update to Android Oreo … Sony removed the above mentioned possibility and, moreover, admitted to this type of action. As if that was not enough, the Japanese manufacturer said that every equipment operating on Nougat allows you to reduce the blue light, but if you have Oreo, you are in a losing position.I have to admit that I do not understand the Sony treatment a bit . I am not able to imagine what the eye saving function deserves to remove from the system – it is just one of the harmless, small but very comfortable options. So what do you do if you find yourself in a situation where you can no longer take advantage of this solution? There are two answers: one more radical and the other fast and effective. Yes, as you thought. The first option is to return to the previous software, but probably no one wants it. The second is simply the installation of independent developers' applications. When I did not have the eyesight mode on my device, I used the Night Shift application – you will find it here and it is completely free. If you have a Sony Android smartphone with Oreo on board, please let me know if this function has actually disappeared or if there has been some mistake. Indeed, the manufacturer has confirmed the removal of this function and at Reddit I also see that some people complain about this problem. How does it look like at your place? Source: XperiaBlog
