BrightnessAs we all know, battery life is something that we all keep an eye on with Android devices, and one of the biggest offenders in this is the brightness of the display. Setting the brightness of the display is rather easy, and something that can be changed at anytime without the need of rebooting the device or anything. Follow the few simple steps below, and in no time you will be in complete control of your devices brightness.

  1. Launch the device settings
  2. Scroll to Display
  3. Select brightness, uncheck automatic brightness
  4. Drag bar left to right to make brighter / dimmer 

While the device defaults to Auto, this is not always the best setting as often times users can use the device at a lower brightness, which consumes less battery. In the direct sun light you may want to change it back to full brightness, but play around with it, and set it up to your personal preferences.
