    WP has lackluster brightness settings. The lowest setting is still too high. It hurts my eye to even look at the phone in low light settings. We need something like a slider that can change the brightness OR add more brightness presets.

    EDIT: I found this over at windows uservoice. It is just what we need. Please vote:

    I'll note the Focus S brightness settings relative to the Focus:

    High: matches Focus
    Medium: dimmer
    Low: significantly dimmer than Focus


    But you are right, the granularity is... lacking. Also wish for something like Apple's autobrightness, where the user may choose a "preference point."

    If that's the case, they should make an update for the focus to fix this. I used to own a Ipod touch and it had the perfect brightness settings with a slider. I wish MS couls implement that in WP. It is so much more flexible.

    BTW I assume you own a focus. Do you experience this problem?

    My Optimus 7 is always on low and I can see everything perfectly except in direct sunlight at 12:00-2:00PM but when I choose the max brightness the phone turns into freaking Cyclops.
