    What brightness do you all have it set at? I have it on Auto-Brightness to save battery

    I manually adjust based on the environment but generally keep it low. I used to keep it on max brightness for years. Best thing Apple did was add the slider to control center.

    Like finn5975, I adjust mine based on the current needs, but I do have Auto-Brightness turned on.

    That said, I find that sometimes with the Griffin Survivor case on, I have to crank the brightness higher than I would have to if it weren't for the additional glare/haziness its screen protector causes. Even with Zagg GLASS installed though, I still don't trust the phone without that extra layer...

    Auto brightness here for the first time ever. I tend to keep it at a certain level and then adjust it accordingly depending on my ambient lighting. I have read auto brightness can drain the battery a bit, but I don't think I have to even worry about that with the iPhone 6.

    And to clarify, I use auto brightness because I am too lazy to change it myself

    I use auto-brightness. Usually around 20% brightness as default and let it do its thing. I'll sometimes manually adjust but very rarely.

    Around 20%. Never liked it any higher.

    I have it between 30-40% almost all the time. When I take it outside, I turn it up to about 70%.

    I don't yet have the 6, but I'm guessing I wouldn't change how I set my brightness. Usually about 33% inside. Maybe 70% outside. Auto never really worked for me. I found it annoying.

    Been using mine at 100% on my 6 so far the last two weeks. Ill probably switch it to about 50% soon though, but it has been nice being at 100% though.

    Auto for the most part. If I need to I just swipe it up to suite my needs.

    I keep mine on auto unless I'm on my phone in bed in the dark. Then it's the absolute lowest it can go.

    I thought, back a few iOS versions ago, that auto brightness used MORE power than not using it. Something about the sensor working all the time and adjusting used up power. No?

    I never thought about it from a battery standpoint. I just don't want to have to adjust my brightness all the time. It's on auto and I don't have to think about it most of the time.

    Unless I'm in a very dark room or bright sunlight, I'm good at keeping my brightness around 50%. But even the usage screen says I can improve battery life by enabling auto brightness. Confused!
