    When I put the phone under bright light the screen gets brighter like it should. Then when I take it away from light and move to a dark room the brightness doesn't go down. Anyone else have this issue?

    Thanks. I did a search, but they don't seem as effective on Tapatalk.

    When using auto brightness, the brightness bar setting (1/2, 3/4 etc) represents the minimum brightness the phone will go to. So if you go into a dark room and have your brightness levels set high you won't see it drop past your minimum level, and you may not notice much dimming.

    In fact if you set it too high, you may not even see it light up in bright rooms as it may already be at or past the max level for that environment.

    Lol it was changed on the iPhone 5. Didn't work that way on the 4 or 4s.
