I have given up on the Adaptibe Display Brightness feature!!

I bought a new phone and it had Oreo on it. The Adaptive Brightness was a new feature for me (coming from Nougat) and it seemed to work surprisingly well. Then my phone updated itself to Pie... and the Adaptive Brightness started to go awry.
I gave it few days, patiently turning the brightness to desired level, but it doesn't look like it's learning anything. Overall, it seems to love to decrease brightness a lot. Sometimes I even turn the brightness up only to see it immediately go down. It also has strange hiccups where upon unlocking it turns brightness down then up again etc. When I'm using the phone for navigation in a car, it just refuses to keep the brightness at anything but the lowest level. So today, I have finally got tired of it and switched it off. It's a shame, because in 8.0 it was really useful and worthy feature, but how it works now is just unacceptable.
