I rock 25%. Perfectly fine for my eyes.
yes, I'm about 20% I think it's plenty bright. I put mine back up to 50% after reading this thread and it was amazed how bright it was in the factory setting. I think everyone should put theirs down to about 25% for a day. You will get used to it and save your battery life.

I used to leave my treo at about 75% for daily use. if i was ever in the sun, Id have to crank it up to 100%.

I'm amazed at how much brighter the iPhone's 40% is than the treo's 75%.

The iPhone's set at 25% for daily use and its perfect. :D

Haha disneyland was my exact thought when i thought about raising the brightness. That's the only time I can remember raising it on my treo.

You have got to be kidding me. im on 6 hrs usage, 11 hours 4 minutes standby :rolleyes:
yeah i was exaggerating. :(

you will notice some battery life increase if you lower it though. Not a tremendous amount. But combine that with turning off wifi when not in use, and turning it to ring as opposed to ring+vibe, and you will get another hour or two. Enough to seriously consider doing it.

train yourself to use lower settings. I was at 100% and then I cut it to30% after that 50% seemed crazy bright. Then dropped it down to 20 and 30 seems real bright. Be qusr your used to the dark
