Display Brightness

  1. To adjust the brightness of the display, access the Brightness settings menu.

  2. From the Home screen, touch Menu > Settings > My device > Display > Brightness.

  3. Mark the box for Automatic brightness to let your device adjust the display brightness using its sensors.
