    I have my brightness on the lowest it possibly goes (because in my mind it helps save battery life). Sometimes my brightness goes crazy and decides it wants to go all the way up or half way up. It's not only when I plug it in to charge that the screen gets brighter. Sometimes it's random, any suggestions?

    Sorry none, but same thing is happening to me. Totally random, checked all settings, seems to just be another glitch

    The reason your brightness does this is because if auto-brightness is turned off, you can swype your finger from side to side on the taskbar to adjust the brightness higher or lower. The "bar" of the taskbar must be the only part drug down and visible for this to work.
