    When I click on various links the screen on my AT&T S3 will darken. For example, from the home screen I tap on the weather and the weather screen opens. I then tap on the location and, again, the new screen opens with no problem. However, if I then tap on an individual day from the six days at the bottom of the screen, a new screen opens and is much darker than it should be. It's so dark that it's hard to read. Any idea as to why this is happening?

    For me it was the browser was always dim, perhaps your selection is using the browser which like mine would dim. To correct this, go to settings, display and uncheck the auto adjust screen tone. I was told that all Samsung G3 phones come setup with the least demand on the battery and that this setting is by default on. I hope this works for you.

    Found the solution

    The fix did not involve the settings brightness controls. When on the dimmed page (browser or not) I tapped the menu button and found a second brightness control. I disabled the automatic brightness and used the slider and the problem was resolved.

    I am having this issue anytime I open my Internet browser. Are you saying I should go to the Google setting for a screen brightness adjustment? All I can find are settings for search options. Or are you talking about a menu button on the phone itself?

    Open the browser that came with the phone. Then tap on the phone's menu button to the left of the home button. One of the options there should be "Brightness and colors." Make sure "automatic brightness" is unchecked and then use the slider to adjust the brightness. Now, even if you start using an alternative browser, the dimming problem should be resolved.

    Glad I could help. I love this phone but some of the things are definitely not intuitive.

    Answer to dimming issue

    Besides turning off the auto dimming, Turn off POWER SAVING. It's located between Auto Rotation and Blocking Mode (4.1.1) in the "swipe down" menu.
