Dazzle allows this to be switched off without going root.

If you have root access you can alter the sensor behavior to shift between brightness levels more slowly instead of fast and jerky, but it appears it is never completely disabled.

Some people are having trouble if they put a screen protector on. Did you put one on? If so you need to cut out the part over the square sensor.

Is the brightness issue europe only? I have been using mine here in the US and it seems I am able to disable auto brightness and have manual control. The auto brightness seems to work better than my fascinate. Any US play users having the auto brightness issue.
