Anyone else notice that after turning the screen on it dims a little after a few seconds. I don't have auto brightness on.

It could be the thermal control kicking in.

To see if it is, when it does reduce the brightness, try to up it again with the slide control, if it's the thermal throttling, it'll say it won't because of the phone's temperature.

Most probably is because the CPU will be used a lot when starting.

What do you have your "Screen timeout" set to under Settings > Display? Mine usually dims a few seconds before turning off the screen. If you have a short timeout then it would dim very quickly.
