    I don't use the auto option to conserve battery life, but I'll go test this out...

    It did dim back down, but it took a couple seconds longer than it did to brighten. I'm running 4.1.2, not rooted, so no custom ROM.

    i just figured out the brightness dims back only when the mobile is held in "horizontal" position.. if held in 45% or any angle it wont go back but once i make in horizontal position whether its held crosswise or lengthwise it will dim back..

    I was holding mine vertically, tilted slightly back so the light source could be detected, and it still dimmed. But like I said, it was noticeably slower dimming than brightening back up.

    This is actually normal behavior. It has to do with the time it takes your eyes to adjust from being out in daylight, then walking inside a dimly lit building. You are going to want an extra minute or two of extra brightness when this happens.
