Display Brightness

You can adjust the brightness of your device's display from the Brightness settings menu. From the Home screen, touch Apps 1 > Settings1 > Device > Display1 > Brightness. Mark the Automatic brightness checkbox to let your device adjust the display brightness using its sensors. To manually adjust the brightness, touch and slide the bar to the right for a brighter screen or to the left for a darker screen.

You can also adjust the brightness level within the Notification Panel, which you can open by swiping from the top of the screen to the bottom. The brightness adjustment bar is just below the Quick Panel shortcuts. Mark the Auto checkbox to turn on Automatic brightness.

Screen Timeout

To adjust the timeout of the display, from the Home screen, touch Apps 1 > Settings 1 > Device > Display 1 > Screen timeout. Select the desired delay from 15 seconds of no activity up to 10 minutes.

NOTE: Turning on Automatic brightness and reducing the screen timeout can assist with battery conservation.
