I can't watch any movies... its way too black!!!!!!!! Otherwise the tablet is perfect, but it would be nice to watch a trailer without trying to figure out what is happening.

Surfing the web = 10
Functionality = 10
QPair = 10

However watching videos = 1

Is there a fix or should I just return this tablet for something else?

Uh... just turn the brightness up and turn off auto brightness. Or get MX player and... Turn up the brightness in the app's display settings

Brighter Video Playback
The "Filter Your Screen - Free" app has dramatically improved video playback using the LG Video viewer, BS Player, and MX Player. The settings that work for me are: Alpha 30; Red 200; Green 200 and Blue 220. I also set the Display Brightness in "Settings" to 85% or higher.

After viewing a video, I set the Brightness back to around 50% and turn the Screen Filter off and it seems to save the battery. I can only get about 5 hours of battery life with the brightness set high and the Screen Filter on.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the tip on this app. I will try it and update my thread to also recommend the app. I'm going to use it for a few days and see if it affects my battery life negatively. With the screen adjuster app running, I can easily go a day or two before having to charge my tablet.

Thanks

I have found Lux auto brightness FREE in Car mode makes dark scenes in movies much much better. No noticeable difference in battery consumption either.

This made it so that movies seemed to drop frames and causing the playback to be a tad jittery. Also the whole UI became slower and the level of microlag increased.

Isn't there a flashable fix for this instead of applying stuff that renders a "fix" in real time and thus causing misc gpu rendering problems?
