[Discussion] Mi 8 screen too bright in the dark - solution: chrome dark mode

A little complaint I have about the Mi 8 is that I find the screen too bright when reading in the dark (I believe it is a common complaint).  For myself I like to do some bedtime reading on my phone before I fall asleep, but always find the screen too bright and strains my eyes a little.  I came across information recently about a dark theme in the latest updates in the Chrome browser, and thought to give it a try.  I have created a thread talking about the setup of it here:

My thoughts on it?  I think it's great!  I can browse at night now without straining my eyes.  I think this works great for AMOLED screens, as blacks are truly black, and with the added advantage of saving battery.

Problems? So far I came across one website where some of the pictures in the site were negatively exposed (like that you see in films of a film camera).

What do you think?  Anyone have any other solutions you want to share with dealing the high brightness of the Mi 8 screens?

I think even that its too bright and it is sometimes buggy. I do not understand how it can still be so bright even with reading mode or night mode enabled. I remember when I just got the mi8 I could set brightness much lower. Or was it? Anyway I started using an app called Night Owl at night. Works like a charm! You can find it on the Play Store
