Does having the screen at full brightness affect the performance of the phone? Just curious what everyone else has their phone set to...

Have brightness set to full on all my apple products and auto off
Ditto. I have Auto-off as it worked poorly for me and I think it saves battery since it would turn the ambient light sensor off.

My brightness is about 40% with auto brightness turned off.

I've had multiple Apple employees tell me that using auto brightness takes more power. After turning it off, I found this to be true in my experience. I gained about an hour of usage on a charge cycle.

This and making sure the "ask to join wifi" is turned off as well.

Thanks for the tip.
