I set my phone in the dock on my nightstand and use it as my alarm clock. It has worked wonderfully with Gingerbread. It dimmed down quite a ways, changed with the ambient light, and had decent contrast.
Now, with the ICS update, it's garbage. It seems like the backlight is going full tilt so setting the dimness only affects the clock numbers - if you set it too dim, the numbers just blend into the background. And with the back light always on, even the "black" background lights up the room enough so I can practically read by it.
Does anyone know of any tips or tricks to get this thing to behave at least a little like it used to?
