    33% increase in screen brightness sounds pretty good.

    I haven't noticed the extra brightness (in the Mojave update) – I never had a problem with it – but the default display profile is completely different. Originally, there was a pronounced colour bias in some situations; that's gone now. It was so bad, I used an alternative profile. The default is fine now, for me.

    I have definitely noticed an improvement in brightness. In a moderately lit room, I've had to turn the brightness down a notch or two because it was too bright for my taste in that environment. When I'm working with my back against a big window with sunlight coming in, the screen at max brightness is perfect. I used to have a 2017 TB MacBook Pro and this MBA screen brightness with the update is comparable. Of course, if I had a MBP for a side-by-side comparison, there would be an obvious difference. But from an everyday usage standpoint, it feels similar to me now.

    After the update to 10.14.4 my mba became bright enough. I consider 400 nits pretty decent for a mainstream everyday laptop.
