When I turn on power save mode, I notice that it reduces both screen refresh rate, and brightness too.

Is there any way to allow reduced screen refresh rate, but NOT reducing brightness. Is this even possible?

Reason being that the screen is kinda too dim even in wee bit darker than normal light conditions. Right now I am toggling between auto and manual brightness based on where I am.

Refresh rate? How can you tell that it does that?

XDA is somewhat down right now. I've been trying to reply to you, but it keeps hanging. All power saving mode does is lower the CPU clock frequency. The refresh rate is never changed. The frame rate is, however. If you're rooted, you can reduce the CPU clock yourself with a number of apps on the play store.

That's strange. Check the attached screenshot. It says it reduces frame rate.

What I finally ended up doing is install YAAB for brightness control (includes night mode too). This disabled the auto brightness n things worked out well.

Thank you very much for trying to reply. The very thought is appreciated a lot.
