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.

Yep.
Check what is using your battery on your phone.
You will notice that screen mostly use up the power

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?
