In GravityBox you can assign a new auto-brightness level.

I don't doubt this is true. But my battery is even better on kk so I'm a little shocked.

Give users the ability to control the overall level of auto brightness.

New Samsung phones allow the same.

I don't understand again why they have made such a change for the worse in this area if it is true. I cannot detect a difference in brightness at the moment.

I have the same impression with my girlfriend phone, but it isnt because the KitKat! Its hardware.
There are some units that the screen looks more pinkish (you can see when is turn off) and there others with a blueish screen.
The fist one has lower brightness,you can see in white pages.

There are probably different screens in different batches of the phone.

I find the screen too bright with auto mode on both JB and KK. I have been using lux (with default settings) for a few weeks now and it's great.
