You need to disable 'auto backlight adjust' if this bothers you. The path to find it varies depending on your rom but it should be under Start/Settings/System/Power/Backlight and uncheck the auto box.

If you already have it disabled then thats just weird...

Re: normal for screen to increase brightness then dim?

it's not that, i want it ot auto adjust, but here's an example of how it's bugging me:

1-10 brightness (10 highest).

phones on the table, stable lighting. brightness at 5.
phone is about to dim after 30 seconds.
at about 29 seconds, brightness increases to >5
at 30 seconds, dims to 1
phone screen turns off at 1min.

Re: normal for screen to increase brightness then dim?

i just don't recall my TP1 doing that. it's like before it dims, there's a quick surge of brightness. it's not that big a deal, it just grabs my attention thinking i'm getting a text.

Re: normal for screen to increase brightness then dim?

There are things that can trigger this like reconnecting or application and etc..

Are you using a standard rom or a cooked one? also did you disable push internet?
