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
