    I use the pre-set options in Battery Widget Reborn. Indoors, I'm at 10% and outdoors at 25%. .

    For battery life imposes auto is not ideal.

    I keep mine set anywhere between 40-50%. Most of my time is spent indoors, so it's not a problem at that level. When I'm outside I'll set it higher depending on conditions.

    I use manual brightness and like to keep it fairly low. I set a long press of the back button to show the brightness slider for ease of use.

    Than charge it.

    Auto Brightness uses too much battery, I use 25 indoors and 50 outside on a bright day and 10 if laying in bed in the dark.

    maybe this isnt the best place to ask this, but im thinking of getting the nexus 6, assuming its the 5.9 beast its rumored to be. I have a note 3 right now, and one thing I happen to like is having the brightness slider in the drop down menu. is there some sort of short cut, or app I should know about to enable me to mess with the brightness easily? my eyes are sensitive, and depending on light conditions, im constantly changing the brightness.

    That's not currently part of stock Android. However, during my brief time with Android L, I seem to recall brightness was in the dropdown. Can anyone confirm?

    Are you me? This is exactly what I do using notification toggle with values set at 10, 25, 50, 100.

    I always trying to set brightness to auto and the only phones which can handle it as I want were Nokia Lumia 920/1520 and Nexus 5! Any other phones uses different algorithm and it does not suite me fine
