Once I do that the device does a great job of regulating the brightness within the levels I set. The Kindle operates the same way. I've never had to manually adjust my brightness after the initial setup. If it's left on the default settings then yeah I agree. The brightest is too bright and the lowest is too dim and the in between is hit or miss
Thanks for your clear explanation. I was not aware that it was possible to calibrate the autobrightness setting. I have that feature on my Fire Tablet and had turned it off because it was not working for me, but based on your comments, I will give it another try.

This underscores a recurring issue - the design of these devices is actually quite clever, but the documentation that accompanies them is minimal to non-existent, and users are basically left to hack their way through various setting options, many of which are hidden behind obscure names that don't convey what they actually do. Shame on the designers and manufacturers for doing such a lousy job of explaining how to use their products.
