    Seems that after the update we have adaptive brightness instead of auto brightness.

    How does one calibrate adaptive brightness? Mine seems very dim when I do it.

    I think the default Settings\Display\Screen mode is "Adaptive display". Maybe the Screen mode option has a bearing on how the Auto brightness looks in various ambient light conditions? On the Verizon Note 5, I'm not aware of an adaptive brightness option, but could be that Verizon removed or changed that option.

    I believe.... After you click the auto box, you can then slide the brightness bar let and right to fine tune, but maybe you're talking about something else

    Might be completely unrelated, but after my update auto brightness don't seem to adjust at all.

    I am referring to the slider and auto box. Oh lollipop I world check auto and the phone would take care off the rest (auto brightness). Now it seems I have to calibrate it (adaptive brightness). But even after calibrating the brightness seems really dim

    Noticed this problem twice today. Once was in a semi-lit environment, the other in a well lit room. Unchecking, and then rechecking the Auto box in the brightness slider fixed it.

    This is the way I see it as well. If I check the box it auto adjusts but I can fine tune it. If I unchecked the box then I get the full adjustment spectrum from dark to holy crap that's bright!

    I found that setting the slider to the middle is the best way to use auto brightness.

    That's how I have it set. Think it may be the default.

    I'm finding that adaptive brightness doesn't really dim the display. If I turn the light off in a room the display stays bright. If I turn the screen off and on it'll be dim but it's like it doesn't realize until you do that.

    Not trying to resurrect the thread. But I noticed this too. What I think it is: using the slider - on manual - you control the brightness maximum and minimal. On auto - you set a minimal dimness level and it starts there to identify and set the lowest and highest. If setting auto though it looks like it reverts to a lower brightness setting. So I think the maximum minimal, setting for brightness via the slider is a notch or two back from full brightness.
