Closer to the release of OxygenOS 5.1.8, a post was found on OnePlus forum that has many comments claiming that the auto brightness feature in the OnePlus 6 doesn’t adjust according to the environment, and only the third-party app Lux, is useful for it to function.

Reasonable number of threads was seen on Reddit in which users repeated the point that the display on their OnePlus 6 handsets “flicker rapidly when in direct sunlight.” As the company claims that OnePlus 6 compete with Samsung Galaxy S9 and Huawei P20 Pro.
