Screen brightness and auto dim

Hello everyone,

 

I'm just wondering why the screenbrightness gets reduced in dark surroundings with turned on auto dim even more than it is manually possible.

I would like to turn auto dim off and only control the brightness with the manual control but this does not let me reduce screenbrightness enough.

Does anyone have a good suggestion?

Have you tried turning off Automatic Backlight Dimming? Go into the Settings icon, tap Screen.

Re: Screen brightness and auto dim

Thanks for your reply. But that's not exactly what I was looking for.

 

There is a big difference in how dark the display can be set when using the automatic backlight dimming. When turned on the screen can get to a very low brightness at night. It is not possible to achieve the same low brightness with automatic backlight dimming turned off.

 

I suppose that this might only be possible with a software change.
