    my phone keeps turning extremely bright all of sudden, and I was wondering how to stop it.it usually happens when the battery is low, but it does that randomly also

    Might be on auto brightness.

    If you go into Menu>Settings>Display>Brightness, you can see whether it is set to auto or some other level

    Actually, this is a documented bug...when the battery level gets low, it bumps up to high brightness for some unknown (at least to me!) reason. If you change it from auto brightness and then back on, it'll dim correctly again. But its been around for a while from what I've heard. Unfortunately I don't think there is a fix currently.

    When you have auto brightness and adjust screen to save power both off you should not see fluctuation

    Menu.settings.display for both selections

    Also check menu.power saving mode and ensure it is off

    Other than that the only other setting is browser brightness

    Accessed while the stock browser is open

    Press menu.brightness

    The web browser also has a brightness feature and for some reason it overrides the master brightness settings.
