Auto-Brightness.. Failure.

I don't use this option, but because it never worked for me. I figured by now they should have fixed it with an update or something.

When I turn Auto Brightness ON, the screen dims to its lowest setting. I've gone from a dark room to a brightly lit room with no change in screen brightness whatsoever. It seems like Auto means its just locked onto the lowest setting.

Anyone else getting this?

Sometimes there's a few second delay before the screen adjusts to the ambient lighting but it eventually does adjust.

Ahhh that explains it. My screen is usually filled with finger prints... and I'm very impatient.. I was expecting it to instantly adjust whenever lighting conditions changed.

Thanks everyone.

There's also a technical reason for the delay. If it were to adjust immediately to every change in light over the censor, then it would be fluctuating constantly. I believe the ambient light must remain at a certain intensity for a certain period of time before the brightness adjusts. I don't know if that's an editable setting.
