Moto X (2014) and eye strain... any fixes?

by NessC10 / January 9, 2015 3:00 PM PST

So I got a Moto X (2014) and it gives me the worst eye strain I've had. I've turned the brightness down.. to the lowest setting (wish it could go lower), making it any brighter kills my eyes off. I've also changed the background, but that only helps so much. I'm also unable to change the app text fonts (to me they're not easy to read). I've had headaches, blurry vision, and tight eye muscles.

Is it the amoled screen causing the eye strain issues? or maybe the small screen? I'm very close to returning it due to this. I'm unsure how to fix this, and hate to have to install a 3rd party app just to use my phone. This is my first cell phone.... but I do use my samsung 7" 2.0 tablet throughout the day without bad eye strain issues, and find it quite comfortable to look at.

Does anyone have any suggestions, or fixes? Maybe even what phone would be better for my eyes?

There are folk with issues that only a doctor can address. No doctors I know are at those cell phone stores.

You dont have any other option than this..!!!

Reduce your brightness , keep your auto- brightness also off.. Then, keep a dull and dark background..

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
