    I have noticed the auto brightness is too low in many situations. I have to switch it manually 3-5 times a day. Is there a way to increase the baseline brightness?

    When your in auto do you have the bar cranked all the way up? That controls your baseline for auto

    When I'm in auto it doesn't make any difference where the sliders at except in direct sunlight.
    But that would be a good idea if samsung made it where the slider was the baseline when in auto mode.

    I only use auto brightness In truly harsh sunlight. Normally, at 50% brightness! it is still fine in the car on a sunny day. The GS6 is much brighter than my GS4.

    That didn't work for me. It seems to go back to 20% every time I select Auto. I don't have power save turned on. What's the name of the package that controls the sensor? I may have accidentally disabled it with Package Disabler.

    Yah that's not how it works. If i have mine on auto and go into a dark room the screen gets incredibly dim. If i turn off auto the screen brightens up to the 30% i have the bar set at. Auto does everything on its own.

    But i would also like to be able to set a baseline like OP said. Would be super helpful because the brightness in a really dark room is just TOO dim.

    Well mine works like that. Canada carrier. Can adjust the baseline brightness on auto with the slider. It's handy. You can't tell it's doing this is your out in so light it won't crank it down. But with auto on in a house or darker room it changes with the slider in auto.

    Fixed it. I wiped the phones cache and it worked like normal again. Must have been a software bug.

    Can someone else on verizon confirm that you can use the slider for baseline brightness while auto brightness is on. Because I'm on verizon and mine don't work like that.
    It would be pretty cool if it did.
    I kept thinking they should of implimented something like this a long time ago.

    +1 for velis.
    This application works great for auto brightness.
    And you can adjust to your liking.
