    I notice that whenever I set my phone to auto brightness the display is very dim and doesn't adjust to changes in lighting. Am I the only with this problem? When I set it to auto it goes to 5% brightness and doesn't even change.

    I guess I haven't had it on long enough to see if it changes with changes in lighting. I just know that it isn't bright enough. Hopefully they will tweak their algorithms with the next update.

    It isn't totally broken but neither is it OK. Mine does vary brightness (albeit it with a big lag) but, unless I turn auto-brightness off, my screen never gets very bright.

    Try turning off "Auto adjust screen tone" in the display settings. It's a power saving mode that totally screws with screen brightness.

    Mine doesn't seem to work either. I turned it off as I noticed no changes and just adjust manually.

    Alright, try downloading Lux and disable the system auto brightness. Then use lux to create your own interpolated curve. You have to train it for different ambient light levels. Combinations that have no explicit linked setting will interpolate between a higher and lower setting. i.e. you can link just a few amblient to screen brightness settings or a lot if you really want it specific to each ambient condition.

    The auto brightness on this phone is really bad. i have given up completely after 3 weeks of trying. You will be much happier finding your balanced manual brightness and just getting used to that!
