    Seeing a lot of reports of the Note 3 auto-dimming the screen even with auto-brightness turned off and max brightness selected? I'm curious if this is just a couple of strange instances or a widespread problem. It might be a deal breaker for me since I usually run at max brightness on AMOLED screens.

    Why? Are you a fan of burn-in?

    If you have it set to adaptive, it might do it then as well.

    on any phone that ive had, if it over heats, it will dim automatically to cool down a bit. it's a great feature, to prevent burnt skin. my droid razr gets to about 116f. and dims for a little bit when it gets this hot.

    Are you suggesting that running a phone at 100% brightness will damage the screen? Don't you think samsung/Motorola know what their screens can take and set the brightness max accordingly or are you just trolling?

    Thank God you created this thread.
    I am having this issue too.
    Although, I am not sure if it does it everytime it heats up. My phone is pretty cool. I mean, cold. You know what I mean.
    Please please pleazeeeee.
    I need a fix. I don't want a dimmed phone!
    I want to enjoy it in FULL HD COLOR!

    it has some adaptive settings, and power saving settings, which will change brightness automatically depends on the content being displayed.

    Make sure to go to settings/display/Screen Mode/ and change it from adaptive to standard or movie that will allows make it so you dont have to have your screen at 100, which you NEVER should do on any phone....

    Realistically it has no effect other than effecting the life of the display, and to be honest even at full brightness it will last the two years or lest most people will own it.

    Verizon and AT&T disabled this app and it wont launch; so this will only be the case if they are on TMO

    I disabled it.
    What does that do anyway.
    Btw, you guys know how to get the old video player back? I like the stock Video player for the SGN2 better than the one in SGN3.

    That's just me though.

    Samsung knox is a new secure based software to seperate business and personal use and secure content... When I checked ram usage it was running apps constantly in both modes basically putting twice the load on the cpu... The software needs to be fixed or note 3's will overheat...it almost killed my phone

    I have adaptive OFF, I have all power OFF, Autodim OFF, I have Knox OFF. What I have found over the past 2 weeks is that it ONLY dims when running S Note and using the pen! Handset is COLD so its not heating issue. Repeatable as well. Soon after I pull the pen, screen dims down a notch. Shutdown S Note and pull it out of memory (Clean Master) and it goes back to stable brightness.

    Oh thank god I am not the only one. When I mostly notice this is when I play PvsZ2. It's really annoying. I already did the screen thing, and I don't have Knox because Verizon is my carrier. What else can I do? This sucks.

    I had my note 3 on power saver mode at 40% brightness and I noticed my screen dimmed alittle when my battery hit 59% I thought it was weird cause the current power saving screen setting was doing pretty good and I thought that tiny dim was unnecessary because it just made me turn it up to 50%.

    This is still happening to me. If the overheating was a true cause I would appreciate the feature, but it seems to happen moments after using the device. Hopefully this can be fixed in a software update.

    Is this a bug perhaps?
    Are all note 3 users experiencing this or is this a factory defect?
