    Default Brightness baseline

    What does everyone have their brightness baseline set to? I left mine at the 60% default.

    60% with auto brightness turned off is working good for me.

    60% with auto, only thing I noticed is it isn't really brightening up too much wen I go outside in daylight so I sometimes have to manually turn it up for that even on auto.

    Just give it a second. It doesn't immediately adjust as its making sure the light is really brighter and you're just not walking under a light or something.

    I really like that feature but I agree it can be too slow at times.

    60% for me as well. I was thinking about dropping it down but with this battery I think this is the first android phone is can leave at a decent brightness and not have to charge every hour.

    Hmm 30% is too low for my taste. The whites look too grey. I've been running auto with a 70% baseline which I find to be a nice middle ground.

    So even if you have auto brightness on, it will still stay around the percent you have chosen right? I like that.

    Auto brightness on this thing blows and the auto adaptive content contrast fluctuations at low brightness bug the hell out of me so I usually have it for about 50%

    I have it set to 65% with auto on. I think it's bright enough for most situations.

    Leave me at 45 auto of when Indoors, week crank it up to 60/65 of im watching a TV show or movie just because of dark scenes in them. Anytime in outside I go up to 100, I can get away with it being lower then that but with sunglasses on etc I don't have to worry about it.

    So for those that are around 40% what do you do for brighter situations? Just UAE the brightness toggle in the notification tray or manually adjust the % in the display settings?

    Both depending on what I want. If I'm going outside I use the toggle to go to 100. If I just want to bump it up but not all the way I long press the toggle to go to settings and move it up to what I want.

    I use the toggle all together. When I'm in a pitch black room I toggle it all the way off. If I need to just bump it a lil bit I take it to 50%. And when I'm outside I change it to 100%. Otherwise it stays at 40%

    The auto brightness really is awful on this.

    Default Re: Brightness baseline

    I must have a special phone because I find that set at 65% with auto on I can go from inside a dark room to the bright Florida sunshine and I never have to manually adjust the brightness to see the screen.

    I just can figure out why people are having such difficulties with the screen brightness. Maybe it is because this is my first smartphone from a 5 year old upgrade and I am used to a dark screen.....

    I'm at 50%. I had auto on for a bit but noticed a flickering type effect on the screen.

    I might need to change mine. I tried to set it the same way I set my iPhone by turning off auto, going into a pitch black room and setting the brightness to 0 and then switching on auto. Having the baseline at 0 keeps my screen too dark overall I think.
