    Default Do you use your phone with maximum/near max BRIGHTNESS?

    I tend to find anything over than half way to be good, but overkill, IMO. So I usually leave it on auto or if I am at work and have it in my locker, I put the display all the way down.

    What do you guys generally have yours set at?

    I have mine on automatic but sometimes it gets hard to see when its on automatic like if i'm outside it might be hard to see so I just put it all the way up if I have too.

    I normally find on any device usually about 25% brightness unless outside then you have to crank it up.

    I have mine at 100% about 95% of the time. I will only turn it down at night if needed.

    Have it on auto.

    Seems the screen now gets brighter when the surrounding light is very bright as opposed to dimming like it did when it was first released

    Certain screens were getting dark with auto (Internet for one) so I switched to 75-80%. That works just about right for me with no noticable battery drain at all.

    I keep mine at around 50%, auto off. Anything higher is a *bit* too bright, unless I'm outside.

    Only when outside in a bright day.

    Indoors, much dimmer.

    In the dark, dimmer than usual, via ScreenDim app.

    I use Lux auto brighness. you can find a free and paid versions in the Play store.
    What I like about it is that it take the available light around you and adjusts you screen to give the best view.

    but isnt that feature already built in to the phone? we have an ambient light sensor

    The only time I ever change my brightness is when I head outside during the day.. Other than that, I am perfectly comfortable with auto-brightness off and the slider all the way down..
