    Do you reduce the white point on your iPhone to make iOS 7.1 less bright, or do you use auto-brightness?

    No. I like the brightness. Besides, I can always use the brightness lever...

    I am the same as everyone else so far. I really do not see the point in it for me. I like the brightness how I have always liked it.

    In a dark room it does make a difference. Don't have to fiddle with auto brightness.

    Once I set auto-brightness I haven't made any screen brightness adjustments.

    I do use it since two days and think I'll stick with it. In the dark it is more comfortable for my eyes and during the day it doesn't make a big difference IMO. Kind of compensates the lack of f.lux

    It reduces the brightness of the color white.

    I agree with John; that would be a great feature. As of mow, I use autobrightness. I have always used it and haven't adjusted anything once.

    It's a nice option to have. But since the brightness control is right away available in control center, I just go to that for when it's too bright in the dark.
    I don't use auto-brightness.

    I have left everything as they were intended to be. I have no problems with IOS7. I tried the darker look but i dislike it very much.

    Apple really dropped the ball on this one feature. I was hoping for a much more darker grey feature, or like I said in another thread, the better take advantage of the invert colors function. Just reducing the brightness by a smidgin didn't do it.

    I don't notice that switch until I upgrade to iOS 8.1.3...

    But I have to say it is essential to me because of the Keratoconjunctivitis sicca.

    There's a few options when you tripple tap the screen with 3 fingers. Double tap zooms. Tripple tap gives you reading options and a magnifying glass option. It's cool if you haven't seen it. Most don't know about it. You can't screen shot it. So I took pics of it.
    Here's the main menu.

    Select choose filter for screen options.

    I do enable reduce white point. It helps a little to keep the white on the screen not quite so bright. I would use invert colors all the time if the photos and images didn't look so wierd. Why can't Apple just offer a dark theme option for the OS? And I'm still waiting for an email client with a dark theme. I'd pay $$ for that.
