    The title says it all. I work in a cellphone store, so I'm always around a charger and by the time I get out of work, I'm at 100% for my ride home, so I decided to change my setting from Auto to High.

    Where does everyone else have it set to?

    Its on Auto man, high is just to bright unless I'm outside in the sunshine. If I didn't use Auto I would probably stick with Medium

    Auto here. It's doing such a great job, I don't see a reason to mess with it.

    Auto. Haven't really had any issues with that setting.

    I have mine set to auto. When I used an LG quantum my brightness was set to low, but the battery is so good on the Titan that I don't use a lot of battery conservation tricks like I did with the LG.

    Auto works well, but just love how much more than screen pops when it's on 'high'.

    High it's too bright unless in the sun. (And shows blacks as grey)

    Medium is just right for these old eyes. :D

    I set it to medium because I think it's more battery efficient than auto and the viewing's ok for most conditions. I manually change it should lighting conditions warrant it.
