    I have my brightness (Settings>Display>Brightness) set on about 20% (give or take - all I see is a slider, but no statement at to the actual percentage that I see).

    I've also installed the "Power Dashboard" widget so that I can easily brighten the screen when outside or in bright lighting.

    I have noticed though that if I use the widget to increase the brightness to the third level and then go back to the first level (i.e. dim it more), that when I go into Settings>Display>Brightness, it is set to a higher brightness than before I brightened it using the widget.

    1) Is there a way to see what the actual percentage brightness is?

    2) Is there a way to make sure it goes back to the originally set brightness from the widget (after making it brighter with the widget) without having to go back into the setting menu?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks.

    By chance, are there any apps you know of that essentially do the same thing but allow you to set the levels?

    Ha! The app elixier does what you want it to do. It shows a % also. Then i have beautiful widgets toggle for brightness. It says it wont work on htc phones but it works on mine. You have it set at like 20% and then click the toggle and it goes to 100% and do it again and goes back to where you had it set before.
