    How do you set your brightness settings on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

    I have mine on the lowest possible for the battery life, its not even dim though. Super Amoled HD really does the justice

    100% I don't need no stinking battery life.


    Does anyone else find that the unlock screen lags with auto brightness on?

    I just have mine set to 20% the whole time... but if auto brightness worked properly...

    Lol its not just th battery life for me but the fear of screen burn in. The higher the brightness the more likely it is to be

    Yes, it's a known issue on 4.0.3 or lower. It seems to have been fixed on 4.0.4 (Liquid 1.25) for me though.


    Sweet... I will look forward to 4.0.4

    100% all the way. The only time I lower the brightness is if I'm in a dark, busy environment (restaurant, bar, movie theatre, etc.) and don't want to draw attention to myself.

    That screen is too beautiful to turn down. :D

    Why does the poll go from lowest to middle with no in between, but then has 75% for between middle and 100%? LOL. I would pick 30% if it was a choice. :)

    I have vertical banding lines show up below 30%.

    25% is perfect.

    I leave mine on auto.

    I've found that I've grown less interested in micro-managing my phone, these days, so I just let it be and enjoy it. I've wrestled with battery life enough (and won).:p

    Agreed. But by that time most of us would probably be looking for a new phone.

    Ah, so how long do you stay with a phone, on average? I've stuck with my previous phones for around 2-3 years.

    I'm running aokp. I have my color multipliers tuning settings all at .34. (The stock setting is too high on most roms and could cause burn-in.) Because the screen isn't as bright, "auto" works fine for me, which is where I leave it.

    Mine is at ~33% at home and Auto at work. We keep out house darker than the GNex likes so when at home it will set the brightness to about -10%. I say "-10%" because if I manually set it to the minimum, it's actually brighter than what Auto gives me.

    That maybe the case when your using the power control widget, but I've found it can be set even darker in the settings menu where you slide the brightness.

    10% indoors or at night outside
    50% or auto in daylight
    Anything else is just too bright to look at.

    I never correlated the widget's minimum to the slider's minimum. I stand corrected.
