    We are all trying to save battery here. I don't like to be tethered to my wall outlet or my cars power adapter.

    I've found a way to reduce screen brightness (without root) using an app.

    I'm used to a pull down notification settings selection, from the ROM on my D1. The best thing I've found that is close without flashing a ROM is "Quick Settings". There are a few options with this app, but I'm only going to touch on one.

    The brightness setting in the app has 3 buttons and a slider. The button on the left is minimum, right of the slider is maximum, and far right is auto. The slider adjusts from 0-100%.

    Now go to the phones settings screen. Reduce the brightness to minimum there. Now go to a darker area of your house or office and watch what happens when you select minimum in Quick Settings! I'd say you get another 5-7% reduction in brightness!

    I hope this gives you a little extra juice for your day!

    Does this allow more adjustment than the brightness setting included under Settings/Display/Brightness (Disable Automatic Brightness).

    The phone from the factory has an auto brightness setting. That's what I leave mine on. When you use the bluetooth/wifi/gps/brightness widget you can set it from right there. You can go to like 2 or 3 different brightness settings and an auto one. People always comment and say my display looks dark, well that's cuz I have it on auto to save battery. You can also get to this under settings and display.

    The setting doesn't stick after you restart the phone. Ive figured out that this extra 5-7% brightness is used when the device dims its display when left on and idle. I'm not sure if its really worth re-applying this hack each time you start the phone just to get a bit longer battery life.
