    What screen brightness do you keep your iPhone at?

    I currently have mine around 75% however sometimes the battery doesn't last the day. I'm thinking about lowering the screen brightness down so it will last the day.

    I'm gonna try 50% tomorrow and see how it goes.

    Around 80% with auto-brightness off. I might just crank it to 100%. Why the heck not.

    100% during the day

    40% at night

    Auto-brightness off at all times!

    Had it at 50% for a few days and the battery just about lasts the full day :)

    40% with auto-brightnesses. It's always been perfectly usable this way.

    I'll sometimes take it all the way down at night in a dark room or all the way up if I'm gonna be out side all day, but those times are rare.

    I keep my brightness on 40-50%. I get about 6 hours of usage a day before I go to bed, and I plug it in around 50-55% battery left. Mostly texting and some mild web browsing.

    30-50% during the day (indoors); 70-100% outside in daylight or when doing things like editing photos. Screen brightness definitely is the biggest battery drain I've found by far for me, so I tend to keep it as low as I can get away with for the ambient light conditions.

    I'm at apprx. 60% with auto ON. WiFi on all the time...email push every hour. I get through an entire day with approx 40% battery remaining.

    I use the phone a moderate amount throughout the day.

    Roughly, I tend to keep it at about 35% with auto-brightness on :)
