    Angry "Unable to increase the brightness further. The device is overheating" What the ...???

    I have noticed that when I use the Automatic Brightness setting in Setup, that the display is fairly dim and I am NOT attempting to blow my eyeballs out with screen brightness. I had been using it on manual with it turned up 1/3. Going back to Automatic Brightness, the screen substantially dims and the automatic setting is approximately at 15% with a warning "Unable to increase the brightness further. The device is overheating." This occurs after 10 minutes of use.

    Yes, the back of the tablet is VERY warm -- what is the experience of users on this forum -- do you get this warning and if so:
    --how long until the back of the tablet is very warm
    --how long was the tablet display on before the automatic dimming made the display much dimmer?
    --when tablet is turned on with the Automatic Brightness setting turned on, where is the indicator on the horizontal graph (histogram) in Display Settings?
    --after the display has been used for a while, where is the indicator on the horizontal graph in the Display Settings?
    --Do you get that same warning?

    Thanks for any information and opinions!!

    Yep. You updated to Lollipop too, huh? Absolutely ridiculous function. My phone is not even warm and now I can barely see my screen randomly as it flickers light to dark. So. Annoying. Especially since I use this device to read.
