    Just curious what the average user does with their brightness. I know it doesn't give you an exact number but estimate

    Both iPad and iPhone are on about 65%. Bright enough to see and saves battery life.

    I keep mine about 20%-25% most of the time. I wouldn't have noticed the backlight bleeding (mine has a bit of it) if I hadn't read forums/articles about it and since I rarely (if ever) go above 50% brightness. I don't think it's an issue for me.

    All the way down. Way too bright for me any other way. Mostly used indoors, might have to crank it up some outside this summer.

    I leave it on automatic where i assume the light sensor adjusts it.

    Unless I'm trying to show off pictures or something, which look fantastic on max brightness. I wish there was an option for it to use a pre-set higher brightness when charging though.

    Usually my brightness is very low, around 20% maybe. We keep it pretty dark in our house, so any brighter than that is painful for me.

    I'm in the same boat.

    Simply too bright if I knock it up a notch.

    50% and it seems much brighter than the original iPad.

    I keep my original iPad at 0% indoors. Outdoors, depends on how bright it is.
