Backlight on the g1

May 3rd, 2009 No comments

I’ve been using the g1 for a few months now on a daily basis, and for the most part I’ve been quite happy with the screen and have never had to change the brightness settings.

I was a little upset when trying to give directions earlier in bright sunlight, as I was squinting quite a lot.

My upset was quickly replaced by amazement as I realied ILd been running for 3 months with the screen brightness turned to 0%; change it to 30% and it was bright and readable again. Fantastic!

Truth be told, as screens go, its almost too bright, I keep finding myself reading in bed and wishing I could make the screen dimmer, but it looks like -15% screen brightness (would not only suck all of the light out of the world, but also) is beyound easy reach.

-as a side note, its quite hard typing on the g1 when you’ve but off the end of your finger chopping onions :(
