Default Hack to increase Galaxy S5 brightness?

Hello,

I read that the S5 screen can go pretty bright, but only in certain situations and it's not controllable by the user.
Is there a hack that can allow me to set the screen brightness to be at its true max?

Thanks

the only way you can set a screen to max is by using auto-brightness. The note 3 had that max brightness but only using stock auto-brightness. I dont think there is way to mod that as the screen has a protection in order to prevent overheating

It is only that bright in direct sunlight. Normal max brightness is 351 nits. I believe it's 698 nits in direct sunlight. I believe OP is asking if there is a way to make it stay closer to the 698, via software hack.

To answer your question, even if it is the brightest phone out there, it still sucks in sunlight. In my honest opinion.
