...curious, I set my brightness to at about 30% or so. Some people use auto brightness.

But, do you think auto brightness uses more power (since it is forced to monitor the device) to use this feature?

yes I believe it does, on gb it was constantly flickering bright and dim. If u want custom auto brightness levels, I recommend the "lux auto brightness" app. I use it, and its amazing

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into it...

I do hate that when I'm outside, if my brightness is set to 30% or so, I can't see anything on the screen. It is those little things that I miss from iOS from time to time. And of course you can't set the device to 100% or so brightness, because then the battery most certainly would not last all day.

Unless I'm in total darkness I use 100% brightness all day every day. But in the dark it hurts my eyes so I gotta turn her down a little. Battery is still pretty kick ass too:thumbup:

It is funny how in BestBuy they have all the devices on 100% brightness. They do look nice; then again they are connected to power all day

Even yesterday I was playing with the Note. Yes it is impressive. But the size; imagine holding it to your ear while on a call. Exactly...

I have not had any Android phone that I liked the auto-brightness setting on. My wife's Inspire works the best out of all the Android phones we have had.

On the SkyRocket the auto setting always seems to bright for me.

I like Brightness Profiles. You can set what ever levels you want (or quickly turn on auto-brightness). I have mine set up at 4%, 8%, 12 %, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 90%. I have a shortcut on my home screen for quick access.

How much the screen brightness hurts your battery life depends on how much your screen is on, in addition to the brightness level.

Just turn off auto brightness. When you need to adjust it just slide your finger across the notification bar at the top of the screen ..side left dimmer, right brighter that's what I do.

I keep mine @ 100% unless it's way dark. Still get a full day of battery life under normal use too. It's really user preference.
