Default Auto Brightness Issue

When I turn on auto brightness it goes almost completely dark. And it doesn't adjust, whatsoever, after. Any one experiencing the same issue? Is mine broke?

I certainly don't have that problem. You don't somehow have the sensor covered right (not that I know where it is)? I would exchange it if not.

For free you could try Lux Lite which is an auto brightness replacement. At least you will know if the problem is hardware related.

That app is fantastic. That's the way my auto brightness should be working! So I guess I do have a hardware problem huh.

Not so sure you have a hardware problem as both the stock autobrightness and Lux Lite use the same sensor to determining when the brightness requires adjustments. So I'm not sure what's going on. Well at least you have an alternative while you figure out what is really going on.

I bought this from Amazon. How long do I have to return/exchange a tablet?

I believe they have a 30 day return policy.

The auto brightness on the S tabs is useless. I think what happened is that they simply used the algorithm for brightness adjustment from the Galaxy phones but didn't adjust them to compensate for how dim the AMOLED panels on these new tablets go in comparison. Lux's adjustment actually works and I really like the app because it's one of the few that finally show you the actual brightness percentage.
