Hi all
Just got the Galaxy S4 4G+ (i9505), and compared to my SGS III LTE (i9305), the automatic screen brightness setting makes the screen very dim, even when brightness compensation is set to +5. I know I can always override the automatic setting, and use apps like Lux, but I would like to stick to the original automatic setting, as its handy.

So my question is, is this a "feature" or a fault only affecting on my device? I have checked that the ambient light sensor seems to be getting similar lux's as my SGS III. Newest official Android 4.3 installed.

Attached is for reference a picture where both phones are set to automatic brightness with no compensation. Ambient day light indoors.
