Anyone noticing very dim screen when playing movies?

Blackberry default was about 50% brightness; Fine for me for daily use. Then I noticed my movies were way too dark. I tried ramping up the brightness to full and while it has the desired effect on other screens it just doesn't seem to do enough on the movies. The problem is compounded if you try to watch a movie in a dark environment as the screen dims more in dark environments due to the light sensor. Wondering whether a lot of people are seeing this and if they are whether it is hardware or software related.

It's been OK for me. Make sure you're not putting your finger over the light sensor near the forward facing camera.

No, I'm not doing that. In fact, I did it on purpose to see just how dim it would go in a very dark room. What brightness setting do you have your phone set to?

Maybe I'll have to get the same clip and load it on a store phone and put the two side by side to demonstrate if my phone has a fault or not.
