    I've noticed that while at 100% screen brightness with auto off, I can get more by standing in direct sunlight (it works, try it). Almost as if there is a locked 20% that is only used in direct sunlight. Is there a way I can enable this all the time? It would be really beneficial for my job, battery life be dammed.

    It only does that if you have the screen brightness maxed out already. If you turn brightness down just a little from full it won't to it anymore. So unless you have your brightness on full or auto I don't think there is a way to make that work all the time

    Dang, because I work outside and the second it catches the shadow of a cloud, or my shadow it dims again. Rooting might be my only option then, even though I really don't want to.

    This is correct. Only auto can put it at the absolute fullest (usually when you're in direct sunlight).

    If you have the brightness all the way on max without auto on it will also go to full brightness in sunlight.
