Default [Q] What is the best brightness setting?

Seems a shame to keep this beautiful screen below 70% brightness. What is the best setting for brightness that won't kill my battery? Thanks.

30% and auto brightness. Greenify with firewall blocking most connections. CF lumen changes tones in the pm. Think im just lucky my eyes are more light sensitive so I can keep brightness settings low.

I use Lux Auto Brightness and my Day profile currently is set for max 70% and that for me is perfect even outside in the sun.

Try Lux if you haven't already.

Full bore, baby! The only time we turn the wife's down, is when we go to bed.

+1 on the Lux app. I have a full version and I've been able to get over a full day of battery life. Love phone and app.

Thanks, mine is coming tomorrow and I'm nervous reading reviews where some people say the screen isn't good outside.

She makes it through the whole day, and she is a moderate to heavy user.

Screen is great in full sunlight. You get max brightness if you turn off auto brightness and push the slider all the way to 100%. Guarantee you won't have an issue with that.
