    I HAVE POWER SAVING MODE OFF!

    hi , got a little issue. Its probably a setting but I cant find it. when my battery hits 5% the phone dims to very dark . I cant stand it . I don't need it to reduce the brightness because I always have another battery on my person all the time.

    I HAVE POWER SAVING MODE OFF! ANY HELP would be greatly appreciated.

    The easiest thing would be to recharge it ;)

    Is autobrightness enabled?

    Nothing you can do about that and it's normal. It's meant to save as much battery as possible while you can get to a charger. I remember reading it in the manual long ago.

    Its a feature that u can't disable once it goes past 5% then u can't change brightness setting at all.

    Since OP is in the Note 2 section as well as the fact that OP's profile lists a Note 2, I then think it's safe to assume that's the phone OP is inquiring about.

    This shouldn't be an issue, if it bothers you so much, just swap your batteries. :)

    Plus it's not advisable to totally drain the battery if you want it to last longer.

    5% is nearly empty. If the display would not dim, no juice would be left for the processor and the phone would simply die on you. I don't think that's a "stupid" feature.

    The S3 doesn't do this nor do my older phones. Yet still they work sufficiently...

    Yes, this is actually very annoying, I have a backup battery, and I switch them when the phone dies, I don't care if it's down to 1%, I want my screen to stay on bright until it dies, so theres no setting I get it, but still I prefer that my brightness stay 100% bright. The OP didn't ask for advice on how to extend his battery life, he ask if there was a setting to stop it from dimming, stop doing so much extra, lol.
