Does anyone know how to dim Down screen even more than it says on the settings? Like ex. If you use the stock browser it gives you the option to dimmer to (high power save) so it dims more than normal... Can I do that when out of browser?

I believe you have to use apps found on the Android market. That was also the problem I found with this phone. I'm used to Samsung phones allowing you to maker the screens dim extremely dark right out the box. The Note is my first Samsung phone, and it really doesn't have that many brightness settings. The lowest setting is still fairly bright. I downloaded an app called Lux from the market, and it's amazing. I can make my phones screen almost pitch black at the lowest setting.

The app called Dimmer will take you from 10 to 0 (10 is as low as you can go with the stock brightness control). However, I later found an app called Screen Filter which works even better - you can make the screen even darker, I found 0 to still be very bright in a dark room.

Even better, you can set up Screen Filter so it dims the screen a small amount all the time to save some battery life.

I really didn't like screen filter as it ruins the clarity when you dim... I used it on my evo and it was good while it lasted, but as Dr. Evo directed me to lux, it's a great app as it actually dims the brightness, and doesn't distort the screen with a filter

I use Brightness Level, https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ZXNzbGV2ZWwiXQ... It has a widget for easy access and does all of the levels that I need. Try it out. It's free by the way.

It's a good app, just Google the paid version and get that, it runs ok when it tries to self adjust
