    I keep mine almost all the way up. Why would you want to dim it?
    Because it considerably affects battery life!

    No offense whatsoever intended to the poster, but you keep hearing "oh, my 4s gets terrible battery life"...and then you dig a little deeper and find out they have brightness cranked all the way up, they actively use the device for hours with the screen lit, they never turn off Bluetooth (even if they rarely use BT devices), and they have like 40 apps set up for push notifications and using the GPS. All of these things use power!

    If you prefer your device on full blast, that's perfectly fine, but there's a trade off for that. If it didn't take power to run the screen, then Apple wouldn't even have bothered to ever dim the screen or have it go to "sleep". It would just be perpetually "on", kind of like a Black-and-White Kindle or something, and run for a month. This is a much more complicated device.

    Mine is probably around 35%, or near the "B" in many of the pictures above. I actually would prefer to have it around 50% (at least in well-lit areas), but the way I have it set up right now I've been very happy with the battery life, so I'm keeping it.

    I keep the brightness slider near the "r and i" in Brightness(the word on the very top).

    I keep mine between under the 't'. Even on a sunny day, I can see my screen perfectly.

    Usually above the e I have it which is why I may get worse battery life than most people. I like sbsettings cause it's got a brightness quick thing which I change depending on what I am doing.

    I used to be an all-the-way kind of guy...but in an effort to maximize battery life, I switched to auto-bright. That way I get to see fine no matter the lighting conditions, but I also salvage some additional battery life. The only time I have any trouble seeing the screen is when I have my polarized sunglasses on....then sometimes I have to move my phone around until I can see it...haha

    Mine is right about the 50% mark. Ill only put the brightness up if I am gaming.

    I'm with Handlebars! I'm about 4/5ths the way up the slider. Gotta stay bright!

    I noticed they kind of fixed the auto brightness since the release??

    Around 1/3. I want to conserve the battery, plus the glare bothers me if it's too bright.

    In the grand scheme of things, the display brightness doesn't make that much of a big deal.

    The battery load between lowest and highest screen setting only changes about 100mA. While it will absolutely cause your battery to drain faster, it still doesn't affect the overall battery range as much as using it does.

    For example, an iPhone 4S with all of the radios off and displaying a static screen at lowest brightness: 87mA (16 hours)
    Same conditions, full brightness: 189mA (7. 5 hours)
    The current draw is liner throughout the range, so you can estimate different settings pretty easily.

    For perspective, simply typing text into the notes app causes the current draw to climb an additional 300mA, and an additional 25mA if you have keyboard taps enabled.

    If you factor in the wifi, cellular, and GPS radios turned on and working, you can start to understand why the battery life is so short with these devices.

    It seems counterintuitive that typing a note or swiping your home screen will drain your battery faster than watching a movie, but Apple made the decision (and a good one at that) to sacrifice battery endurance in order to max out the CPU on user interactions. There's a reason why it appears to run so smoothly - and it's not because of special hardware.

    Your battery could have lasted longer, at the expense of lags in the user interface.

    I would have to say that i keep mine lil' more than half way on the total bar. I dont mind sacrificing a little battery life so that i can see what im doing.

    In the car I keep it down because it's so bright when I'm out or at home it's almost up all the way I love the nice bright screen

    About 1/4 way, with auto brightness, in an effort to get a wee bit more battery life

    Never changed the setting and auto brightness on is perfect for me.

    Maximize the brightness cause its the only reason to charge my battery at night. Amazing battery life on this thing.
