Light sensor overriding manual brightness control

    Hey everyone, really liking the charge so far. One problem right now: I am trying to keep the screen brightness way down to save battery life, but the phone does not seem to like that plan. Even with the automatic brightness option turned off, if I place a finger on the sensor, it ramps up the brightness on its own and then leaves it there.
    Has anyone seen this before/know how to fix it? Thanks!

    Not sure if this is the fix, but try turning off the "power save mode" in brightness settings. I have mine that way and it stays at the lower screen setting.

    Thanks for the post, but that was already turned off. Still looking for what is causing this.
