Share Your Lux Profiles!
I know many of you have said that the Nexus 5's auto brightness is a bit whack. Quite honestly, compared to my Nexus 4 and iPhone 5, I feel it is on the bright side. I took the recommendation of getting Lux, and am wondering what are good settings?
I have my links setup the following (01/24/2014 setting):
Would appreciate any feedback and am searching for what works the best for a good combination of readability yet battery savings.
My frustration seems to be it's very easy to have a phone register 0 lux even in an office setting, and as soon as you tilt it the right way it will pick up anywhere 1-10 and cause a huge jump. I walked from my bathroom which was completely dark into the hallway which had a light, and my phone was still picking 0 lux. If I happen to angle a little better it reads the light and bam the screen lights up. Quite annoying because my iPhone will pick up the hallway lighting even if it isn't direct and that bright and the screen already starts to get a bit brighter...
I swear I've always been fighting the issue of dynamic range with autobrightness in Android. It's quite frustrating.
Played a lot with the 10 - 40 lux range because I felt that it was too bright.
Turned brightness down a bit here in this post
