    Screen brightness

    So what does Automatic brightness actually do? Does it save battery?

    Yes, that's primarily the purpose for Automatic brightness, although it also helps with readability by keeping the brightness at levels which work well with the ambient light in the room or location where you are using the phone. If you go into a darkened room, the screen will dim, and if you go into the sunlight, it will brighten to the brightest setting.

    That's what I do, leave it on automatic but some people have said that it actually uses more power. For me the extra visibility is the thing!
