Could this feature be automated to kick on its own at 7 in the evening and switch modes back at 7 in the morning?

Use one of the 3rd party blue light filter apps. They generally come with time and intensity customisation. I use f.lux, but that is meant for rooted devices only.
A play store search shows 'twilight' as a decent option.

You didn't tell which Android version you have.

I have a setting "LiveDisplay" under Display(Lineage OS14), which does this automatically.

Stock Nougat has same setting under System UI Tuner. How to enable is explained in article.

I am on Android 7.0 Nougat.

I tried enabling 'System UI Tuner' and it is NOT happening. The device is 'Lenovo K6 Power'. Any workarounds here?

let me know in case you need any more information on these two mobiles.
How's your Zuk Z2 holding up? My colleague had bought one and it is giving him a lot of trouble - SIM cards are not detected, random shutdows, overheating and draining when idle, etc. Wondering if these are known issues and any fix ? He is going to try factory reset, but not sure if that will solve the problem.

Absolutely no issue so far. In fact, my G4+ is having 'ghost' touch issue every now and then (my friend who brought the same G4+ along with me is having none of these issues). Looks like this is an hardware issue specific to my handset and i am seriously thinking of selling G4+ and buying Z2 or some other model.
Ah, couple of things to mention about Z2, it has got C-type connector (which is kind of 'drawback' for me) and then I am not sure whether this supports OTG. Other than these two things, the phone is performing flawless.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Samsung Galxy Note 8 launched in India today. Watched the Live webcast at 12:30PM today.

Priced at 67900, the runs on Android 7(Nougat). The Indian version gets a 2.3GHz + 1.7GHz 10nm Exynos 8895 octa core processor with Mali-G71 MP20 GPU and dual SIM dual-standby (4G+4G). The Sim2 slot doubles up as a MicroSD card slot. Only black and gold colours available in India. Internationally there is a blue and grey too

Special Introductory offers are:
1. Rs 4000 cashback with HDFC Bank Credit Cards
2. Free wireless charger on the purchase of Note 8
3. 448GB extra 4G data with Reliance Jio over 8 months
4. One time screen replacement at Rs 990
5. Special buy back scheme for Note 2, Note 3, Note 4 and Note 5 users on Cashify.in

Decent pricing I felt. This is a nice phone to replace my 3 year old Note3 (I'll sorely miss the IR though).

I'm pretty sure iphone 8 which will be launched today (with similar specs as per leaks) won't be priced lesser than this.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

My LG V20 got a problem from yesterday - I am not able to hear the caller properly, almost like speaking with the volume level kept at minimum. The other side is able to hear me properly though. Is there anything I can check about this, or need to take to the service centre? Thank you!

Note: I did a factory reset to check if that helps, but no use.

Need Help!

The contacts on my Redmi 4A are not showing up on WhatsApp. Tried all the syncing and refreshing techniques still no success.

Will appreciate any tips to get it done. Thanks.

I had a similar issue on my OP3T and this solved it .

Whats App > Menu Button > Settings > Contacts > Show all contacts (uncheck and Check)

Also under Settings >accounts>Whats App> Contacts make sure this setting is on.

Settings > Applications>Whats App> Permissions > Contacts is on.

If factory reset did not help and i assume that the speaker volume is high then it's time to take it to the service center.

Check if there is something blocking the speaker grill. There might be some lint or other gunk collected over there. You can clean with toothbrush or ball pin. Had the same issue in my old phone.

I'm very keen on the LG V30 as well. Not a big fan of stylus's in general and therefore am not looking at the note 8. I am using an s7 edge and other than the looks the curved screen does not offer any extra functionality per say. In fact in one handed use you get accidental touches because of the curved edge. Great phone otherwise.
