Must be a variance between different devices because on my N5 auto-brightness indoors at night looks just a little on the dim side. In brighter light it looks good to me but I can't tell you what percentages it's using. I would probably like it 2 or 3 percentage points higher indoors but I'm fine with the way it is now. At least on my device I haven't seen any noticeable effect on battery life with auto-brightness on most of the time. Still getting 5-9 hrs of screen on time with my use. I made a comment in a previous post about auto-brightness being more accurate, I was referring to the way it would constantly adjust the brightness level and the changes would be big ones. Personally I think auto-brightness is much better with the module installed and in my case useable now. No, it's not as accurate as the auto-brightness is on my One X, which is amazingly accurate, for that kind of accuracy I would use something like Lux, maybe in conjunction with the module. I would give it a shot myself but I've purchased enough apps to modify the display brightness as it is.
Running stock 4.4.2.
Forgot to mention I'm using the dimmer backlight setting in the config file for the ElementalX kernel. I don't think that makes much of a difference in accuracy, if any, just how dark the display can potentially go. I also completely forgot that the dimmer backlight and auto-brightness levels are options available in the GravityBox module. As effing long as I've used GB I've never used those two options!
