    Wow...I normally keep my brightness to ~10%. Years of viewing my WinMo phone at that level makes even ~25% seem bright!

    Yeah.. I've been spending a lot more time over here ever since my iPhone arrived.

    And I moved the battery down to 30-35 and decided to just live with it but if I don't notice a significant difference in the battery I'll probably bump it back up to about 50%
    So, any conclusions with the experiment yet?

    Battery life has been better.. and I've gotten used to the screen not being as bright as I would like it to be if it had no effect on the battery life.

    I hear you. It can get pretty bad over there at times.

    Sounds good. I was kinda hoping to hear you say it had no effect on battery life, but I knew that would just be wishful thinking.

    50% seems to be the good enough spot for me. Definitely a lot better than 20-30% prior 3.0/3GS on my 3G

    I keep mine at 40% with auto-brightness so that it adjusts automatically when I go outside, and that works very well for me. I am a person who likes to play with my phone all day and just today I made it through an 8 hour outing with my friends and got home with 50% battery left.

    I was just wondering if the iPhone brightness level affects battery life drainage. My guess is that it would but do you guys know how much?
    OH YEA!!!!

    I put mine in the 75-80% range. AutoBrightness is off. I will not sacrifice all day long picture quality for 30min-1hr extra of battery life.

    Of course it does. LCD light intensity. I've noticed that more on my iPod classic. It'll start dying on me and then I'll turn down the brightness and all of a sudden the battery bar color will go from red to green. So it should be the same for an iPhone. Not as dramatic, but internally I'm sure it does something.

    It definately has to be on the list of the things that suck the most juice. The screen is why when you plug an iPad in through USB it says not charging. I hate anything auto so I have my brightness set as low as I can stand where it balances looking good and being dark. I turn off Auto.

    Keep it around 60% and it'll last you a bit longer. Any phone or device with a screen on maximum brightness is obviously pumping in a lot more juice to the display and draining the battery quicker than one with a lower brightness level. Use a higher brightness only when you're in the sunlight or something and you can't read what's showing up on the phone.

    I have mine on 0% lasts long time :]
    Seriously?
