If you are having problems with the brightness of your Galaxy S3 during certain times of the day, like when it is too bright during daytime or too dim during nighttime, all you have to do is fix its Auto Brightness settings.

Activating the Galaxy S3 Auto Brightness

Here’s how you can go about it:

1. From the Home screen, tap the Apps icon.

2. Go to Settings.

3. Scroll down and tap the Display option under the Device section.

4. Select Brightness.

5. Just put a check in the box in the Automatic Brightness by tapping your finger on it. This will immediately let the screen adapt to the lighting conditions in the Galaxy S3’s environment.

6. Finish by tapping the OK button.

This will surely let you save a lot of battery power by minimizing the energy being used by the display of the Galaxy S3. This will optimize its brightness when in poorly lit areas or minimize its brightness when in illuminated areas.

Auto Brightness Still Not Working Well

If you notice that the Auto Brightness feature of your Galaxy S3 is not adapting well to its environment, something might be blocking its sensors located beside the front-facing camera.

See to it that the sensors are not covered a protective casing or invisible film. You can also wipe them dry using a soft cloth to remove any foreign objects blocking them like dust, moist and gel.

If you think that the Auto Bright function of your Galaxy S3 is still not functioning according to your liking, you can also download apps from the Google Play store that will make up for the limitations of the Galaxy S3 sensors.
