My lightsensor of my Samsung Galaxy S3 doesn't return good values. I tested it in different places, p.E. outside in the sun or indoor with and without light.
The value outside was a bit confusing because the result was the proper value of 85745.0lx. This value is first of all 4 times higher than in comparison with my tablet. At a second Samsung S3 (with Stock-OS) it was about 18'000 lux. Second point: it was a fix value, it didn't change between ~200lux all the time.
After the tests I tried to find out, why that happend. The function
maxvalue = light.getMaxumumRange(); shows me, that the maximum value of the light sensor is 121240.0 lx.
Could it be, that this value is, because I have an custom rom on my phone (Team UB)? Or does anyone know an other reason for this difference?
Thanks for your answers.
