    Maybe I'm crazy, or I haven't looked enough, but I can't find an auto brightness setting. Is there such a setting on this phone??

    This phone does not include a light sensor therefore has no ability to adjust to varying light conditions.

    In other words nope. I never liked the auto light settings on any of the phones anyways. :smokingsomb:

    Yeah a motion sensor. Wouldn't make sense if it was a light sensor cause then the screen would turn off when your in the dark or something ha.

    phone is relatively cheap, this feature just would make it cost more, and its not like we are missing something big. Also screen brightness is a matter of preference.

    Correct, there's a proximity sensor next to the front camera. It likely has an infrared LED and a infrared detector; when your face is close enough to reflect light from the LED to the reflector, the screen shuts off.
