Q10 screen brightness is very dim in dark environment

In a dark environment the screen dims so much that reading text on a white background is terrible.  Is there a going to be an update to stop the auto brightness feature?

Re: Q10 screen brightness is very dim in dark environment

You're not the only one. This is a severe issue that will hamper sales for sure. The BlackBerry Q10's maximum brightness is the DIMMEST out of every other phone on the market today.

IN FACT, the maximum brightness on the Q10 is 22% the maximum brightness of the iPhone 5 (in lumens): http://www.computerbase.de/artikel/handys/2013/blackberry-q10-im-test/3/

BlackBerry is already getting a ton of flak for this issue, as many, MANY users are furious. See this comparison with the Bold 9930: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-q10-f272/very-dull-screen-brightness-level-q10-808915/index5...

There is also a few news articles circulating: http://www.newstimeafrica.com/archives/31992

I will be returning my BlackBerry Q10 tomorrow to Verizon Wireless for a full refund. Back to the Bold 9930 until a PROFESSIONAL product is released. I don't even mind straying away from BlackBerry at this point. Not making brightness control available to the consumer is a violation of trust.

I sure hope they add a way to disable the auto-brightness. That'd make the Q10 perfect!

Auto-dimmer is definitely the culprit (proved this in software) - now, hopefully BlackBerry will provide an option to disable that in a future release!

Re: Q10 screen brightness is very dim in dark environment

I agree. The screen brightness on the q10 is WAY TOO DIM. Please give us the following: 

 

Turn off auto brightness

Turn the brightness level up beyond what is currently allowed

 

Or both.

 

I know this is software related. I sideloaded a kindle app, and went into the app, and I was able to crank the brightness way up. When I exited out of the kindle app, it stayed bright for about 5 seconds, and then went back to the normal dim screen.

 

Blackberry, please listen!!!
