There are various fixes for many auto brightness issues. In most cases, it comes in the form of patches or tweaks that help change the auto brightness values. Usually, they are aimed at lowering screen brightness to conserve battery life, but sometimes they make the screen brighter to better enjoy your nice display. There is now an application that gives you full control of your screen brightness values without the need for mods.
The application is called Velis Auto Brightness and it offers pretty much every feature you could want in an app that controls your brightness. While this does include full control over how bright your screen is, it also offers a number of features that have to do with things that are related to your brightness settings. These include:
Custom auto brightness.
Covers the entire backlight range for even the darkest of nights.
Brightness presets for every taste and screen
Profiles (save the brightness graph under your own selected name)
You have complete power over choosing which sensors will be used to determine environment
Jitter control to prevent excessive brightness updates
Brightness smoothing to make the transitions smoother
Special settings for brightness when device is charging
Fully customizable brightness graph to fit your needs or cover your sensor’s faults
Only uses sensors when screen is on conserving battery
No ads or other nuisances
What makes this app interesting mostly is the jitter and sensor controls. The sensor control allows you to turn off the sensors when the phone is off to further help preserve battery and choose how the sensors react to changes in environment. This gives users a much wider reach when it comes to controlling auto brightness settings.
