    Mine doesn't know if it wants to be all the way down or all the way up or at around 30%. I know it auto adjusts depending on the light but damn I'm never in a room that bright or that dark

    Yes, mine is all over the place so I just stopped using it. Very annoying

    I turned it off as it wasn't working. I would go in my settings and find it at 100% most of the time.

    Auto brightness works differently than before.

    Turn it on. Go into a dark room. Manually adjust the brightness to your liking. Then go outdoors. Again, manually adjust the brightness. It is now calibrated to your preferences and will remember them the next time you encounter those lighting scenarios.

    Autobrightness works fine for the most part, with the exception of a pitch black room (reading at night in bed), where it tends to be too bright. But then, setting it to the lowest brightness setting in 0 Lux conditions tends to cause the brightness to be too dim in nearly all other settings, except outdoors where it just maxes it out.

    I have auto brightness turned off and my iPhone dims on it's own at times. I have to lock the screen then unlock for the correct brightness to come back. I think it's a bug. I heard of other people having the same issue.

    That's not how it works. Put your phone in the sun and set it to 50% then go in the dark and set it to 25%. When you go back to the sun, the brightness will shoot back up to 90%. There is no calibrating it. It just gets bright in the sun to help you see better and dim in the dark to keep you from squinting.

    It's iOS6, not the iP5. I have an 4S and it does the same thing.
