G2X auto-brightness broken?

Is it just me or does the auto-brightness seem to only stay at a certain brightness and never change? On my previous phone, usually when I had auto-brightness enabled, whenever I walked into a dark room, my brightness would lower right away but on this phone, no matter where I go, the brightness seems to always be the same with auto-brightness on. The brightness does not change, even when I walk out with the sun out..
Can anybody confirm this please, I'm thinking of exchanging this unit as it might be defective...

Might be your phone. In my moderately-lit office, I can definitely see the screen brightness change when I focus a flashlight on the sensor and then take it away. It's not a huge difference, but definitely observable.

Do you use a case? Is the case blocking the light sensor?

I do not use a case. I have also tried blocking the sensor with my fingers and the brightness just seems to always stay the same... also when I use the power control widget to change brightness and set it to auto-brightness it immediately jumps to that same particular brightness level that I've been stating

I was noticing this as well. It seems to just go to medium brightness and stay there all day. I never notice any changing.

That's exactly what I'm experiencing, glad to know I'm not the only one..

The change is definitely less noticeable on this phone than my Nexus One, but is there.

I just got the G2x and it does the same for me. It's range of brightness seems to be 20-30% and that's it. I had this problem with stock gingerbread, so I tried rooting and installing CM7, but same problem. So I got it set to manual 10/40/100 on my power control.

My friend said his original droid did this for quite a while until a software update came along a few months later. Maybe we just have to wait till there's a software update to fix it?
