I go for walks listening to audio books and both these things bother me quite a bit. I am wondering if I should try a stock ROM to see if it works any better in these departments.
For the brightness, IDK - I am sure you can toy with settings. Mine has dust under the glass so that kind of screws me being able to see anything with any light on the screen.
But for the volume issue, get IncrediControl and I believe this rom already runs one of the IncrediKernels - open that and under General check the box for Audio Boost. It helps. It can also make your speaker crackle if your call volume is up 100% after a few months, so don't have it up at 100% by default (set-able under Sound in main settings menu). That is what I did. I switched back to 7.2 though recently because I lost my internal speaker for some reason and I thought it might have been the rom (it was not). It recently came back though out of the blue.
I am curious if there are better settings than default for the screen to squeeze more readability in bright light though.
