    You know what, I have actually noticed something like that. I was typing fast and noticed that the keyboard area was rapidly changing in brightness - subtle but there. It's happened a few times, never been able to pin it down or reproduce it---OH that is weird, it literally started doing it the second I typed "reproduce". And now it's stopped again.

    I have noticed the ambient light sensor is VERY sensitive - that's all I can suggest in the way of explanation.

    exactly ! that is the exact issue I have! It doesn't happen on my Lumia 920. It really bothers me since texting is what I do most on my phone

    I haven't seen that but as shinygerbil said, the ambient sensor is too sensitive. I didn't like it constantly changing the brightness so I set it to medium and haven't looked back.
    Perhaps with a future update of the OS I will try it again but so far, I haven't need it at all. Try set it to a fixed setting and see if that keyboard thing goes away.

    hopefully there is an update. It can get really annoying when writing a long message

    Hi! Just notice that too. Just replied to a SMS and got the light brightness changing. I made sure that I was not in the Automatic brightness option but it does it every time I type.
