    I thought that Google got rid of the "blinding light" when you restart the phone, or turn the phone Off and back On. My Pixel 2 XL saw the last of that with Android 10, I believe. It's very present with my 4 XL. Is there a setting to change that, and are the rest of you experiencing the same thing?

    Hey bkdodger...I believe that I am. At least, in Settings/Display/ Dark theme is enabled. So, is there another setting somewhere else that I haven't found to enable? All of my other screens/apps are in dark mode. Only when the phone reboots do I see the bright white screen. Thanks for your help. Karl
