    Does it matter if you have it on and what does it do. Ice noticed brightness at sat 50% and auto brightness off gives me better light

    Auto brightness for most people will help their battery life.

    I like to keep it pretty low so it doesn't drain my battery.

    I think auto brightness makes the screen brighter in bright environment and dimmer in low light environment. I guess it depends on where you will use it most of the time. When I am outside in the sunlight, sometimes it is at maximum. Glad I jail broke mine and have the brightness slider in SBsettings.

    Read this article about autobrightness goofiness. Example:

    Personally, I turn off autobrightness and set it fairly low to save battery.

    I leave mine at 50% and turn the auto brightness on. I find my battery life to be great. No complaints.
