    Yes, this is a know feature of Froyo, and will only work if you do not have auto brightness checked.

    And rather than pressing in one spot or another you can use the status bar as a slider, and adjust the brightness by sliding back and forth

    Very neat little feature that I'll bet a lot of folks including me did not know about. I had been using a widget this whole time. Thanks for the heads up

    Always a good idea to try and share something you didn't previously know with the community.

    This is really handy, I wish I'd know about it before I got an app for adjusting brightness. Although, I'm not able to reduce it to 0%, only about 5%, because I can't get my finger to the extreme edge of the bar. The app I use is just called Brightness Level, in case anyone is interested.

    I usually only use 0% if I'm inside or 100% if I'm outside, but you have a range of options, as well as enabling auto-adjust. It's great.
