    Default Note 3 auto brightness issue, anyone else

    Hey all

    Got the note 3 about a month ago... Love it...

    I've had screen brightness always set to auto. However lately it's been flaky where the screen stays dim when it should get brighter.

    Anyone else have this issue.

    Sorta.
    I never use "auto", always set to highest brightness setting yet the screen occasionally dims for a few mins before going to to its regular setting...
    , and almost has me ready to swap it out permanently for my N2.

    I also never use the auto setting as it is too dim for me. On occasion my phone will dim and will not go back to bright even when I touch the screen. I usually go to the brightness slider and just touch it to restore or just leave it and the brightness returns on its own a few minutes later.

    That's exactly what happen with my note 3 once in a while.

    It was getting a bit too dim for me; mostly because I'm using an OtterBox case. I just turned auto brightness off and moved the slider all the way up, and I'm good now. If it gets too bright, I just go back to auto brightness for a bit.

    My auto brightness won't work at all, I had problem before and after factory reset it worked well, but again it's happening, please fix these bugs, I'm getting tired of Samsung.

    Wow, verizon note 3. I have dimming issues as well. I don't care for, nor use auto brightness settings because I like a consistent light. Verizon tech didn't see any issues with my phone and suggested trying auto setting to see if dimming issue persist. I read somewhere that the phone has a safety feature and dims if phones reach too high of a temperature. I'm a fairly heavy user for periods so this could be true. A CPU Monitor app has my phone cores between 109° - 144°F, and the battery over 98°F.

    Does this to me too. Seems to need a restart then it goes back to normal. Maybe some nasty app behind the scenes

    I have had the opposite problem on three Note 3's, one Sprint and two T-Mobile. I run brightness at about +2 but two or three times a day I catch it at full brightness in my OEM desk dock. I have to toggle it off and on again, and then it's good for another variable amount of time.

    Yes! Make sure A. The phone screen is clean. and B. You do not have a anti virus or other app that may have updated or taken over this setting.
    I've had the problem just recently. Samsung took the option off my notification bar. I must have it and am totally annoyed. I switched clean up softwares because 360 took over the screen brightness control recently. Now McAfee is trying to control it.
    I want to know why this auto control brightness has been removed from the notifications drop down drawer!
    Also make sure you are not in power saving mode. I did that with my note 2 and it took me days to decide why the screen was dull.
