    Hey guys I have an Evo running the OTA update of Froyo. I heard that the power control widget in Froyo should have a brightness setting for auto brightness.

    Do you know why its missing on the Evo? Is it just me?

    Let me know

    Thanks

    It would be nice, I used to use a widget that I got from the market but got rid of it after the update and just haven't installed it. The only down side was that was not the same size as the stock widget controls.

    but according to froyo changelog it should be included in the power widget. Did HTC remove that feature?

    I think the widget HTC supplied us is the old 2.1.

    It's certainly not there in the widget, in any case.

    I just checked ... it is still there

    edit: nvm ... I was looking at the bar version. Did not know he was looking for an individual widget just for that function.

    I use a widget called Brightness Profiles. It allows you to set custom brightness settings, and enable auto brightness. I don't use automatic brightness because it sets the level far too high.

    Then your constantly in a bright room or outside. Cause usually Auto sets it pretty low while indoors.

    You mean Vanilla Froyo? You need to root, in order to get that.

    I use the power widget that allows you to control the brightness, Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi. This works well for me.

    Try the Dazzle widget. It has every toggle you could need, including auto brightness. Only thing it doesn't have is 4G. Much nicer than Power Control IMO and it's free.

    False, because even with the lights out auto brightness is set much higher than I set it manually. The point being if the auto brightness feature sets it higher than necessary at any ambient light, it's wasting battery.

    I guess i'm just lucky, because with Auto Brightness and moderate use, i'm getting around 18-20hrs of use.

    I unchecked Auto Brightness.

    I placed the slider lever right underneath the checkmark. I keep brightness very low.

    False, because you assume that you will always, in every situation, remember to set the brightness level to the minimum you require. If you ever leave it on full bright when you don't need it, you just lost all that extra power you saved over using automatic.
