    Default Why is the background on gmail so dim?

    I realize we have to set screen brightness in two places, one of them being the internet.
    While the internet is bright enough for reading in the car when I turn it up, gmail is quite dim.
    I can find no setting to brighten gmail.
    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Are you turning off the automatic brightness. Even if you crank it up and leave that checked it'll eventually adapt to the lighting in the room. Also have a dirty screen could effect the sensor's ability to determine adequate lighting, etc.

    Check power saving settings. You might have background color checked. Thamight be the issue.

    I just figured it out!
    Gmail, strangely, responds to the brightness settings you use on the desktop settings!
    Duh!

    I would have thought it was related to internet settings.
    Thanks for the feedback. (I never have automatic brightness checked - it's useless.)

    Looked but can't find "internet settings." Where would I find an internet brightness setting?

    When you're on a website (NOT your mail) hit the menu button (lower right on the phone) and scroll up a bit. You'll see it below "Save for Offline Reading".
