    That's because you have video enhancer turned on. Settings - Advanced features

    I turned video enhancer off and YouTube didn't get bright anymore. It stayed at the same dimness as my home screen. What I'd like is for my home screen to look as bright as the YouTube app looks with video enhancer on. I don't know why it's getting dim. It Looks weak.

    You can turn off auto brightness and then set the brightness level to whatever you want if you don't want the screen to adjust brightness automatically based on lighting conditions.

    That didn't work. The screen looked so good a few hours ago. I didn't hit anything or changed the settings

    Go to Settings-Display-Screen mode and set the mode you like.

    Also check if blue light filter if turned on. It can be set to turned on automatically at sunset till sunrise.

    You can turn off if you don't like that.

    What didn't work? Are you saying that when you slide the brightness bar up from the notification shade, your screen doesn't get brighter?

    I put auto brightness on and moved the slider to full brightness. It still looks dim. Also checked blue filter and its all off.

    The auto-brightness is going to read the lighting conditions around you. Also there are sensors in the front, you can block those sometimes with your head and it can make the screen more dim.

    You need to turn off auto brightness if you don't want screen to automatically adjust.

    I'm having this same problem. Auto dim is OFF. Brightness bar is all the way bright. While I"m texting or on my phone for any reason, it goes dim, then bright, and back and forth. Not sure why!

    I think what you're describing is occurring because you have Adaptive Display on. Under the 'Screen Mode' setting you have the option of Adaptive Display which is the default and will lighten or darken you display based on ambient light conditions or Amoled Photo, Amoled Cinema or Basic which are fixed settings. Choosing the option of the latter 3 that your prefer should fix the issue.

    It's the same damn problem on mine. Ever since I got the replacement phone. Original phone was no problem. I Updated the software on day 1 to show the green battery icon. Keeping video enhancer on makes youtube app very bright. As soon as I go to the homepage or anything else it gets dim. Brightness slider all the way up. No auto bright. Adaptive looks best. Power Saving is not on either. They screwed up the Software. I'm on Verizon. Colors are washed out and dim unlike the original Note 7.
