I would like to know the difference between the two modes, because the explanation given isn't very good.
I have not used Eco Mode for more than a few hours, but I'm assuming it would help the issue. That being said, handicapping the phone is a pretty inelegant solution to this. The brightness issue isn't too big of a deal, I'm more concerned with what it says for the long-term durability of the phone.

I assumed Eco Mode just cut off two of the processor cores, but looking at the definition in the manual I'm also not clear exactly what it does, at it seems to imply that the phone will reactivate the extra two cores if necessary.
