Does anyone who already has the 5 (or know someone that does) know whether or not High Brightness Mode is FINALLY accessible WITHOUT having to root??

If so, please let us know! I just pre-ordered the phone 2 weeks ago, and it will be my first Pixel. Really hoping they allow this!! :fingers-crossed:

Thanks in advance!!

Ok. Disappointing, but not surprising. lol

Thanks!

At least they made it brighter this year. The Pixel 4's MAX brightness when Auto Brightness is enabled is 610 nits, where the 5's is 670. I still wish it was in the 800-900s (or more) region though. But at least they improved it.
