    I did yesterday to run the battery down, normal use on low. High brightness hurts my eyes.

    Halfway for me.

    The screen is way too bright when it's full brightness.

    Full brightness is only useful outdoors and in the Apple Store.

    I keep mine at half, sometimes lower.

    Always full bright unless at night. I like the screen to pop and enjoy it at its best.

    Prob one more reason my battery sucks.

    I don't think I've ever used full brightness unless I was sitting directly under the sun. 25-50% is fine for me. Since the iPhone 5, the screens have been exceptionally bright. When I sit in a dark classroom and have my phone at minimum brightness in my attempt to be discreet, it's still too bright. :p

    Using the phone in direct sunlight, that's the only time I would use full brightness. In normal/indoor lighting, about halfway. Reading in dark at night with iBooks or Safari: lowest brightness (brighter actually hurts my eyes in a completely dark room).

    I have always had the brightness setting in all of my iPhones around 25%. Anything more is too bright.

    When I'm indoors I put it at 25%-40% brightness. When I'm outdoors or near a huge window it's at full brightness. I always try to keep my screens low as possible because I'm kind of sensitive to light.

    You know, it actually works. On my 4S I always turned Auto off because it didn't work very well, it took too long to change and didn't adjust enough (still too dim in sunlight). But on a whim I tried it today on my 6 Plus and it quickly ramped the phone up to full (or almost full) brightness when I used it outside.

    Auto works well. Usually set low but with auto on.
