My S5's auto brightness seems to get way to low in darker areas. Also the "+5, -5" slider while on auto seems to do nothing for me.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Sure have, at times its way to dim and when set on auto-brightness that slider doesnt seem to do anything. I usually cant stand auto brightness on any phone tho.

Yea I know what you mean about auto brightness in general, but I feel like this phone takes the unusable to the max. I've never experienced anything like it.

Sadly I can't use auto brightness in the house because of this issue and its pretty annoying.

I guess the brightness isn't the best when in certain areas, but I can't really argue. The phone itself is perfect and the brightness issue isn't a big deal for me.
