I always thought the auto levels on my phone (galaxy nexus) were too low at night or in the dark in general.

I changed mine to the following...Anyone have any tips on better levels? I find this leaves the screen brighter at night, and increments more evenly vs stock and hopefully saves some battery being its not at full brightness until its in super bright sunlight.

0=60
6=60
9=60
14=60
20=60
30=60
46=100
68=100
103=100
154=100
231=130
346=130
519=130
778=130
1168=175
1752=175
2627=210
3941=210
5912=225
8867+=225

I have definitely had to adjust them on all my devices. On my N4(mako)* I turned them way down at low levels and way up at high levels. On my N7(flo) I had to lower them across the board.

There are so many variables: personal preference, the environment in which you use your device, the hardware of your screen, the age of your device (some screens get dimmer as they get older), and the response curve of the lux sensor in your device. Thank science we can customise it. :P

* if you are curious: 2@0, 25@10, 31@50, 50@100, 71@200, 80@400, 96@500, 108@800, 161@1000, 203@1600, 243@3000, 255@10k+
