    Or do you decide to do it manually to fit your needs inside and out?

    I use the auto function. Sometimes I adjust manually if I think it's needed.

    Always used auto-brightness and it's always been perfect. Only trouble I had was on iOS9 Beta 1.

    Always use auto-brightness, unless I want to save battery and squeeze out as much usage as possible. In that case I turn it off and stick it on the lowest setting.

    Nope, adjust manually. I usually keep it around 50-55%, which is perfect for almost all situations and doesn't kill the battery.

    No. Not that I don't think the auto brightness is smart, but just been used to adjust it manually, since the control bar has made it much easier.

    Showed up as a similar thread once you are in this one. Seemed kind of interesting when it appeared as the same question from same poster, nothing more.

    Fair enough

    I created that thread when I had my iPhone 4 and I had sanding phones for the past few years so I also wasn't aware difference wise of screen brightness compared to back then is any different now

    I find the auto brightness works well and haven not move my slider in a long time. Runs at about 40-45%.

    question:
    i never use auto brightness adjust since i find that just swiping up the control screen is easier to adjust the brightness for those cases where i need it.
    but to try out auto brightness i have turned it on. switching it on immediately dimmed the screen, which is fine.
    but with auto brightness turned on i set the brightness to maximum and then let the screen go to sleep for a minute or so.
    when the phone awakes it has remained at the maximum intensity still.
    the question is: what does it need to return to a setting that it itself thinks is best? when does the auto come back on?

    Kinda flew off of the deep end there, didn't ya, mate?

    I have always used auto, and don't see a compelling reason to do otherwise.

    I feel manually adjusting it is like calibrating it too you. So if you set it to very bright in a dark room it tends to always be bright. So you want to set it to the environment you are in and let it do the rest.
