    I've tried but when ever I'm in my room at night it puts it to 0% brightness and that makes it really hard to see. Is there anyway to set a lowest brightness setting on auto brightness so it only goes down to say 30% ? I just ring it really hard to use.

    Set to 50% and on and it works fine

    Lots of people use it. It sounds like yours is being extreme, though. I've never had that issue. If anything my problem is that it often stays a bit brighter than I want in dark rooms.

    I have the slider set at about 50% - 60%. What's yours at?

    Auto-brightness is effective for those who's eyes can adjust to the default setting. For instance my wife has her brightness on 50% or higher all the time, even in the dark. My eyes cannot take this. My brightness is set around 40% regularly and at 25% or less in the dark.

    I've used it since the 3G with brightness around 65% and it has always worked.

    I have always used it--use it on my theater room TV too--works fine most of the time.

    The default setting, On and 50%, has always been fine for me.

    I've used it all the time, to good effect. Best setting for me is 50% and on auto. Does the trick.

    That's odd that it goes all the way down to 0%. I like my screen bright so mine's at about 75% with Auto-Brightness turned on.

    He just thinks that in dark rooms it turns too bright for him, while in bright rooms he thinks it is too dim... :)

    Nope as it is annoying to me and my Brightness level is always around 25-30% never higher, otherwise it bothers my eyes

    I have a similar experience to the OP - auto brightness sets mine dim enough that it's very difficult to see (must be 0%) in complete darkness. So yeah, I don't use it. I wish it worked better for sure, or at least that brightness was easier to adjust. I don't understand why they don't use the same adjustment feature that's on the ipad (double click home button, swipe right - brightness and volume slider bars).

    Instead, I keep it near 50%, so at night I have to leave my app, click settings, brightness, adjust... :mad:

    I've actually experienced better battery life turning it off and setting brightness at a set level... such as 40% +/-
