    I was in Best Buy Friday looking at the Galaxy Note 3 (AT&T) and noticed that with the brightness turned down below about 75%, the colors and contrast seemed to be pretty washed out. I'm only asking because, on my Galaxy Nexus, I have my brightness turned down to about 50% to save on battery, and the colors and contrast still look good. Maybe it was the bright ambient lighting in the BB store.

    Anyway, I already have mine preordered on Verizon, but was just wondering others experience with the brightness setting is so far.

    I've been running at about 33% brightness today to see how the power consumption vs use tradeoff went. I bumped it back up to 50% tonight and I'm liking that better so far. I think it's pretty good even at 50% for general use and allowing the phone to manage brightness up to that point, but not for something like photo tweaking and such.

    So... what your saying then is that at 50% the colors and contrast still look pretty good? It would be interesting to know what brightness setting others on average are using. I don't know, maybe most people just set it to 100%.

    There's also the adaptive display setting they offer to tweak contrast and brightness for what the Note 3 detects as the viewing conditions. Generally, the Movie setting is considered to offer more accurate color for this phone, but that disables the adaptive feature. There are a couple of settings that affect the experience imho, not just brightness. And I think you have to have a balance against what you need in the way of battery life as well.

    This would be a good thing to set up with Tasker where you can have it reconfigure your screen settings for some common different things you do with your phone.
