Look for an app called "screen dim"
It lets you take your brightness and contrast down to ZERO.

Caution: can be really hard to see if you do that. I know, I've spent 10 min in a dark closet trying to open the app again after accidentally backing out of the app with the screen all the way down... pm me if you can't find it and I'll get you a copy.

No more than to be expected from making your screen kick out more light than it should.

+1 for Galactic. I used this on my old GS2 and loved using the red filter for reading at night. It was less bothersome for my wife and it made me fall asleep easier because it doesn't have any blue wavelengths, which I think I read that it can cause difficulty in sleeping.

Haven't rooted my GN2 yet but glad to hear it works on it.

iPhone5 is twice as bright as this phone. Nuff said.

but I have a Note 2 not an iPhone 5. Personally i think the screen is plenty bright enough. Not trying to troll or nothing, just want to understand better, but i like i said i personally dont see many requests for a brighter screen. how would one benefit from having a screen brighter than the brightest stock setting?

Screen brightness is a big deal, especially outdoor.

I mean, ask Apple why the screen in the iPhone5 goes so bright.

In the end, I'd just about personal preference. If your screen can be brighter then why not?
