    Default Email Screen Very Dim

    I noticed on my GN2 starting today (I think) my email screen (yahoo email) is very dim, like a power saver dimness is kicking in. If I select email settings from that screen, the settings screen is the normal brightness. But the email listing (and actual emails) are dim. Gmail app doesn't do this.

    Anyone else notice this? Reboot didn't fix it.

    Nevermind, I think it was just playing tricks with my eyes when I don't have any unread messages, unread messages are bright. Their color scheme could have been better.

    No you are right. When I go to my inbox, my screen dims automatically. Anyone know why this is doing that? I sure don't want to take it back in, but might have to if I can't get this problem fixed.

    It is an effect of power saving mode. It also does it in the web browser. Toggle it and you'll see a difference.

    This was a mystery for me also. I didn't notice that Power Saving was on. Thank you.
