    I always like my display at 100%. I ticked the display power box in settings, and turned the display brightness down 3 little notches. I don't see any difference in intensity, my battery is lasting longer, and the screen doesn't get as hot. Cranked all the way up seemed like it was overdriving the display, if that's possible.

The thing that is happening is that all these widgets that I have tried can set the screen brightness to automatic but cannot change it out of automatic. The screen brightness will stay the same no matter what I set it to in the widget and when I open the display brightness in Android settings it says its at set brightness that the widget said it set it to but will only change the brightness when I click ok. Weird!

    Smart actions will let you set by 1% increments...
    I use that set for home wifi... other times I just use the built in power control widget.

    Thanks for the input. But from what I see smart actions only allow you to set the screen brightness to a certain level if whatever trigger you setup has happened. Also the default power widget does work to a degree. It let's you switch between Auto, half and full brightness. But there is no slider. I am looking for a slider that be put on my home screen to adjust the brightness. But like I stated before I have yet to find one that works since the ICS update. Thanks again!

    There's a slider in the display menu under brightness. Hope this helps.

    I was on Facebook a little bit earlier and after about 15 minutes I realized my Maxx's screen was getting rather warm. This has never happened before. Does anyone know what this is caused by? Maybe just overworking my phone?

    Just a lot of use. The phone has definitely always had that screen heating issue. I've never had it be uncomfortable but absolutely noticeable.
    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]

    Alright thanks. It just made me nervous, never happened to me before so I thought it best to ask.

    Thanks for the input. But I know that there is a slider there. I want a widget that has a slider on it. Going into the display properties every time is to many steps and to much of a hassle. Thanks again.

    In the grand scheme of things it will consume less power since it will use less CPU clock cycles and less RAM, and less of the GPU cycles but those are such small portions of the totals that its unremarkable. What really use power are the screen, cellular data (4G, 3G), Bluetooth, GPS, and WIFI (not necessarily in that order.
