Elephone S7 ‘sun screen’ mode light adjustment demo (Video)


Elephone S7

Elephone is flooding its YouTube channel with videos of how different features work on the upcoming Elephone S7; such as Eye mode, split-screen, E-touch 2.0 and video smoothing. Today, they have come out with a new video regarding the outside visibility of their smartphone and how to improve it with a simple setting.

Here’s the video:

As it always happens, when you’re outside and the sun hits the screen, you realize your beloved smartphone suffers the sunlight more than Superman the Kryptonite; so you bring the screen brightness to the maximum and it gets somewhat better.

Also worth noting is that the setting was turned on inside of the MiraVision settings, which means more MediaTek phones could be getting this feature soon.

Well, in addition to that, the Elephone S7 also uses a neat feature to improve screen contrast by using a pixel-level dynamic contrast adjustment technology, which also allows the screen use less power than traditional screens at full brightness.

The results are not Earth-shattering but it sure does look slightly better. Is that enough to make a difference? You be the judge!

    Nice but I felt the highest brightness is still pretty low in sunlight. Maybe that’s because the brightness of my phone is reduced. But as per this feature yeah it’s really good and interesting.
    There are lot many things can be done in settings.

    MMM …… I think just this, could avoid it. I think it is a simple parameter setting, nothing exceptional …

    Well, at least the screen is quite visible in the sunlight and that is what matters the most! Other stuff doesn’t really matter

    Honestly all the companies should do such short feature review videos, they are great for marketing and attracting customers

    hmm it’s definitely interesting to see what it looks like outside but it doesn’t seem like it was a very sunny day, so it is kinda difficult to judge it

    Nice feature would love to see an entire video of all the special features or surprises in a single post or a single video instead of having them in different posts or in different videos.

    Does anyone know if this setting is also integrated in other phones? I wanted to know if it works well.

    I think that are simple settings, grouped together in a command function. Any brand (more or less famous) can create such a thing

    I begin to believe that you have a contract that obliges you to publish anything relating to elephone, even that is not relevant.
    I really appreciate this company and its models, but can not conceive these pseudo-news!
