    I prefer to have auto brightness enabled on my phones and tablets to help with battery life and varying lighting conditions and when I tried to set my Nexus 7 to auto it shuts my backlight completely off in dim light. I had to use a flashlight on the sensor to turn off auto brightness again. Any one else having issues?

    I sometimes have the same problem in mine. I I recently took a trip to Hawai'i and I kept on having to turn on the light for my seat so that the screen would brighten and then dim to a more appropriate level of brightness. Sometimes the auto brightness turns the screen down too much...

    I'm using flux, which is fantastic for this, and gives a much brighter range.

    Cheers

    Turn off AUTO and dial the brightness down to minimum. If the screen goes off completely, you probably have a defective unit.

    There's no way that auto-brightness should be turning the backlight off completely.

    Alright I'll get my RMA ready because it was doing it right out of the box.

    Sad to say my Nexus has the same behavior. Factory reset had no effect. Back to Office Depot tomorrow. Maybe Google will let us delete device from our profile soon.
