    Hi,

    When I go to settings to try to change the level of brightness, this is greyed out and cannot be selected.

    I have tried tuning the auto brightness on/off but nothing doing.

    I can however adjust brightness by swiping the top bar (the one with the time, battery etc on it).

    Any ideas? Am I just missing something blindingly obvious?

    Hello and welcome to the forum merchantm. :)

    You can only use the Status bar to adjust screen brightness (press, hold for a moment and then slide your finger backwards and forwards on the Status bar to adjust brightness) if Automatic brightness is deselected in Settings > Display > Brightness as Automatic brightness overrides manual settings.

    When I untick Automatic brightness I can then use the manual bar setting to adjust brightness... as well as using the Staus bar in any screen.

    Hope this helps. :D
