The D4's screen is very bright, and even on the lowest setting it's a little too bright in the dark for me.
I found a great app for making the screen dimmer, and it also can control the soft buttons and keyboard backlights. I have widgets on my homescreen for 62% and 82% filters with and without soft button lighting.
Just search for "Screen Filter" on the market.
