Try this app called LUX. It allows you to customise brightness.

The paid version allows dim below "0%".

You can set it to something like -40% in a dark room, and normal brightness when you're outside. Basically, it's like auto brightness which you can customise. This is so you don't have to on/off a screen filter app.

And yes lower brightness saves battery.

Could we get a market link?

Can't seem to find it, just get light meters and cheap screen flashlights in search results.

i just tried this app and it killed my battery faster than using screen dim because this program is constantly running on the background. what settings are you using on it?
