    Automatic Brightness?

    When i set my nexus to automatic brightness my screen continually brightens and dims over and over again without the light in the room changing. Why does it do this? Anyone else have this same problem?

    i've only experience the same thing when moving the phone so it faces towards / away from a light source, e.g. angled towards / away from the window, or when in landscape mode when my own fat fingers keep blocking the sensor

    I now keep mine full brightness. The auto setting drove me nuts.

    It was killing battery life, so I stopped using it. :nexusx:

    My problem is finger placement. The sensor is on the top of the screen (where your ear would be), and my thumb sometimes creeps over it. I'm usually like, "wtf", then I notice my thumb

    I also turn off automatic brightness. it's quite useless when using the car dock during the day.

    I turned mine off also, drove me nuts, constantly dimming... I use about 50% now, and it works fine.

    I kept mine on for about a week, and then it drove me crazy because it would always dim on me while I was doing something, so now I keep it about half or 3/4 brightness.
