It helps save the battery. Auto works well.

I thought auto was just as bad since it's switching between different brightness levels.

Seriously! Anything more than 20% on my phone is blindingly bright and gives me headaches. I used to always run the lowest brightness setting, but now I just use auto.

Mine is always on 50% and I'm using a dark theme. It looks pretty good.

I keep mine at a solid 50% brightness, seems to work for most situations and also looks great. I've also tweaked the colors slightly to change it from a warm image to a cool image.

No flaws on white screens at all, around 8 months of ownership.
