Nexus 4 too bright at night

    Hey guys/gals.

    I have a problem where my N4 is way too bright at night. It hurts my eyes.

    I have auto brightness off and have the phone set to minimum brightness.

    I have tried the brightness apps on the play store, but they just apply a filter to the screen as opposed to actually lowering the brightness past the default limits.

    I also tried a few apps on the play store that claimed to lower the brightness past the stock limits via root access. While it helped, it did by a tiny amount. The difference was negligible at best.

    So I'm thinking that I need at least a %-15 reduction in brightness.

    I'm guessing I need to go more low level to achieve this. I'm currently running vanilla 4.4 KitKat and am rooted.

    I am open to any suggestions.
    Thanks in advance!

    Your best option might be a custom kernel/ROM? I know Francos kernel has (or used to) had gamma control options via his app or one of the kernel control apps via Play.

    I swear by Lux and the root plugin for it. That should let you set the display brightness WAAAY low.
