    I found the screen too bright on the q for reading at night.
    I didn't like how candlelite also turned off kb backlight.

    here's a little trick I just came up with.
    Some time back I bought a roll of that window tint you can buy from Home Depot. I had some left over. so I cut a couple squares about screen size.
    It stays on great because of static.
    I keep them by my bed for night time reading.
    If one ain't enough, use 2.

    ^Are you saying "too bright" even with the auto backlight enabled? That's a new wrinkle. -Q

    The screens on my Omnia 7 and Nokia 920 are too bright to use at night as GPS, even on the forced "low" manual setting.

    Any word on MS addressing this? It's a real pain in the retinas.
