    On my Pro, the auto-backlight seems to maintain the backlight way too low. Is this the case for you?

    Also - where is the sensor?

    Thanks!

    Mine is very low also, much more than the Droid I had previously. I also noticed that it will get brighter when necessary but it won't go back down unless I shut the screen off, then back on which seems to reset it.

    It was annoying to me too. I didn't like the auto setting, so I made my "daytime" profile setting much brighter and my nighttime setting much dimmer.

    Guys don't you think that such issues (issues that everybody's having) should be reported to Motorola/Verizon? For example I've had one issue with the wife's Motorola Defy so I immediately reported it to Motorola, maybe it'll be fixed in the next release or whatever.

    Motorola seems to save on QA and leave it to the consumers!

    There's a a widget that allows you to control bluetooth, sync, brightness, etc etc,

    Its convenient to just flip the brightness to high with the touch of a button when you need it.

    Auto backlight is a joke. I'm thinking it may be because of overhead lighting in my office and home. Either way it is useless.

    I think the auto back-light is designed to do help save your battery. It provides the minimum amount of back-light needed based on the amount of ambient light that the sensor can see. I haven't had any problems with it. It does what it supposed to. If you need a brighter screen turn the brightness up and leave it and sacrifice precious battery life.
