Screen Brightness


My Pro 2 screen seems darker than my Pro 1. I have to set the brightness to about 75% to have the white on this forum be bright. I think on my Pro 1 I only needed to set it for the screen to be bright.

Are you guys experiencing a dark screen too?

jamesk. I'm not having this problem. In fact, I wish my screen could go darker (when working in low light environments).

In a well lit room I only need the brightness around 20% (it looks like the bar is 20% of the way up, anyway. I don't know how to check the exact figure).

But, perhaps, I just have sensitive eyes?

The adaptive screen brightness may have been tweaked for better battery life. You can turn this off and test it by going into the advanced power plan options. I keep mine on when using battery, and off while on the charger typically.
