N810 and the adaptive screen

I finally got my N810 and I’m really pleased with it. It looks nice, feels nice and works like a charm. Thanks Nokia.

However, there’s one thing that puzzles me. Why can’t you force the brightness of the screen to go to maximum. Even if you set the screen brightness to it’s max, it still goes brighter when the light sensor on the upper-left corner of the device detects a bright light. This can be demonstrated for example with a flashlight.

I understand that it saves energy, and there’s the added feel of readability in bright light, but still it would be nice to have a checkbox in display settings for the adaptive display functionality.

What do you think, or have I missed something?

    I have the same opinion

    This is an issue for many people. You have a worse problem on the N800, since it doesn’t adapt to lighting conditions.

    It doesn’t make any sense why you can’t actually set the brightness to the lowest or highest value, it really should have been a slider.
