Sunlight mode 2 clicks instead of 3

Post by frownmonkey » Sun Oct 23, 2016 2:34 pm

The number of times I want to take a screenshot is basically 0 but I use sunlight mode multiple times per day. I would love to see the 2-click/3-click activation for these switched (or add an option).

Agreed. I actually can't think of an instance when I would need to take a screenshot. Maybe to document a glitch but not otherwise

Wow Mobvoi did not publicize this sunlight mode nearly enough

Three clicks of the crown. It would be more convenient with two though, but that takes a screenshot...

Glad this was a recent topic as I was going to post that it is impossible to view the time in direct sunlight. Would be good if the time of day was associated with the wrist gesture so it automatically brightened the screen during daylight hours.

Totally agree about switching 2 clicks for screenshot & 3 clicks for daylight mode.... The number of screenshots I accidentally take!

Really? I had no problem with this. Didn't know about it and just tested it 5 times in a row and all worked fine.

But ok, screenshot and sunlight mode could be distinguished maybe like this:
- click, click = sunlight mode
- click, click and hold (until the popup appears) = screenshot

I think this is better than to distinguish between 2 and 3 clicks. So the sunlight mode will be very fast because the OS must not wait for the potential 3rd click in order to distinguish between the two functions and the quick release of the 2nd click initiates sunlight mode.
