Just wondering if there are others out there who have their display on the brightest setting. I know it kills the battery but the display is so beautiful on its best setting. I use to be worried about quick the battery dies but with a car charger, laptop usb charger....i always should have some sort of juice.
nope i keep it all the way down, if i wanna watch something or if i wanna show it off i have a brightness toggle from beautiful widgets and another one from gphone managers list of widgets they both work differently and i'm trying to decide which one to keep permanently
the screen on absolute lowest setting still looks wonderful, just not bright.
I use that power control widget to toggle between brightness OFF/my default setting (about 33%)/full brightness. It usually stays at my default setting but in bright sun I might toggle it up. Usually full bright is too bright for me.
For me.. I've got Tasker setup to set my Brightness to 100% and no screen time-out.. only when plugged into a power source (either AC or USB)... then, when I unplug, it goes back to the default Auto-Brightness with 1-minute timeout.
I do prefer the vivid/brightness of 100% .. but I also prefer for my phone to last as long as possible on battery when it is on battery... no reason to make it drain any faster than it has to.
100% here unless in the dark, then use power control widget
to set it lower.
I don't use auto brightness, auto taskers, killers, etc, because the processor usage kills
more battery and causes problems instead of saving anything....
Manual brightness, with a habit of
hitting the screen off button before holstering works best for
power consumption and screen image I have found.
