Laugh Random but how cool!

I hope this is not a repost but...

I found out that you can adjust the brightness of the display by simply swyping your finger left or right on the status/notification bar...

Just that I'll let you guys know

No wonder sometimes my display settings change by themselves! Good tip

Lol, I found this out a few days ago and was going to make a thread about it but too late now. Before I noticed that the brightness was changing randomly when I pulled down the notification bar...then I held my finger on the grey bar thing and swyped from left to right. Whala! The brightness was changing! No more brightness adjustment app on my homescreen!

Turn off Automatic Brightness Adjustment.

BTW, this feature is unique to Touchwiz, not Android.

Possibly the only good thing to come out of TW.

The brightness adjustment via the notification bar feature has cropped up in a few threads related to people wondering why their brightness seemed to change for no reason ...

It behaves the same when you are using other launchers on this phone besides TouchWiz. I see it with LauncherPro and ADW.
