Default What brightness do you use?

I usually run about 50% but am thinking about trying auto brightness.

Always use auto. But sometimes I like turning it up to enjoy the nice big amoled screen.

I have lux installed. Many times in doors or at night even 0% is too bright for me, so I set lux to - 25 or - 50. In the daytime in my car or outdoors I set phone to 100%.

mine is on auto brightness 95% of the time,
get about 5 hours on screen time on 4.1.1 ROM with stock kernel..
ICS OTA modem/rpm works best for me.

I use Lux. SGS3 Auto Brightness is FAR too high brightness even at night. The lowest available brightness setting is still overly bright. Lux takes care of this and drops the brightness even lower using dimming filters. You can even customize your own Auto Brightness settings instead of being stuck with SGS3's default Auto Brightness.
