  • I really hope they fix the night light and brightness issues on the Laptop 3. Nightlight isn't working at all for me and auto brightness is WAY too sensitive. It never finds a consistent brightness and sticks with it. Even when I turn off the auto brightness it still tries to auto adjust even after these updates.
  • Yup! I've seen this too. Haven't noticed if fixed yet, but it's definitely an issue.
  • Which issue with nightlight? Just tried it and as expected adds a red tint and you can further increase the strength in settings. Lowest brightness is pretty low so not sure I'd need it. Also not seeing brightness changing and I didn't disable adaptive contrast . Could it be auto contrast in your case? There's an article on windowscentral how to disable that.
  • I just noticed when I turn on 'Night light' in display settings it doesn't work. But when I turn it on in the notifications shortcut it works fine. So that should be a workaround for now.
  • I use F.Lux. Works great on my SP4 and SPx
  • A little feedback from two 15" Intel Surface Laptop 3 users..."Love it!!!"
