Yeah I guess you're right for the Nexus 5. PROTIP: The gray filter would save battery on OLED screens.

auto brightness for me on the nexus 5 seems a bit too bright in every scenario.. It also doesn't scale quick enough and if I'm sometimes in a dark room, the brightness scales all the way up rather than dimming instead. It's buggy and not accurate and also isn't scaling fast enough :P Turning the screen off and back on usually gets almost accurate results but still just a tad bit brighter than I'd like it to be.. I began using Lux Brightness control and was honestly loving it but had to let go cause it really drained on the battery. Waiting for some miracle fix by Google in a software update xP

I always manage it with the statusbar brightness slider to obtain the right brightness level I need without using sensors (better rendering and less energy consumption).

would be great to have a option that changes the overall brightness so its easy to use and one does not have to fiddle with all the values

I finally found an app that doors this--YAAB, yet another auto brightness. One slider to lower the overall average brightness. Simple and small.

Thank you very much phil, this has made a major improvement to the autobrightness function at least on my N5...
Lux couldn't do this, GravityBox brightness controls made Autobrightness worse, but the last 24 hrs have been the best for autobrightness so far...

Clearly there is a deficiency with stock brightness table, and it looks like you fixed it, so far so good!
Now quick, get this into AOSP!
Thanks!
