"To put it simply, Lux kicks the pants off of Android’s stock brightness manager, and it’s worth every cent." - Lifehacker
"Lux is a third-party app that allows you to easily calibrate your phone’s brightness sensor, saving you battery power and reducing eye strain if your phone is normally too bright in dark rooms." - HowToGeek
Lux isn't your ordinary brightness app. It intelligently adjusts the brightness of your display based on the environment you're in. If you step into a dimly lit room, Lux will automatically lower the brightness of your display to make it not only comfortable to read, but to also preserve battery power.
Lux is also able to adjust the screen temperature of your display automatically to make it appropriate for night usage. At sunset, you can have Lux automatically warm your display and switch to your Night profile. If you're an astronomer, you can enable astronomer mode to cut out harsh white light. If you have a root enabled phone, you may even be able to apply these enhancements at a low level with Lux's plug-in system.
Perhaps the best thing about Lux is that you can teach it how to behave. If the backlight is too bright or dim for your liking, simply open the provided Dashboard, adjust the brightness slider to the level you desire, then hold the link button. Lux will use this new 'link' as a reference in future.
Give it a go! I want you to test Lux for more than the 15 minute refund period offered by Google. I understand that some devices may not have the best quality light sensor, and that you may need more time to play around with settings. If you find that Lux doesn't suit you after the 15 minutes is up, you can request a refund within a week of purchase via e-mail - no questions asked.

*** If you accidentally make your screen go BLACK ***

This app will always be free! If you want to show your appreciation, please donate to Wikipedia on my behalf (and let me know you did):
Thank you! Email me if you have any other problems or questions I haven't mentioned.
1. Any extra permissions like read phone state are due to admob ads identifying unique installations. I'm looking into a way to make this not required.
2. Doesnt work on Sense UI devices (i.e. Hero).
3. Potential conflict with Juice Defender. JD seems to negate any requests of this app to change brightness.
Android recognizes values from 1-255 with 1 being darkest and 255 being brightest. It also has support for automatic brightness. Default levels are 1, 50, 150, and 255 respectively. To enable Auto Brightness you can use the letter 'a'.
Backlight! controls the screen brightness level only. It does not adjust keyboard brightness or other light features of the phone.
Don’t forget to add/re-add the widgets to the home screen!
More from developer
Mobile (APN) control is not working on Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) unless app is installed as system app (which is only possible on rooted devices). Reason is that WRITE_APN_SETTINGS permission is available only for system apps.
Currently I have no plans to fix issue unless google provides public API for controlling mobile data connection instead of changing APN settings.
Controls selected connections to save battery life. Connections are disabled when screen goes off and enabled back according to your settings. There are several options provided to customize connection control.
Check screenshots for options.
If you don't find this application saving battery enough, try with different options, e.g. increasing poll interval.
Note. Mobile (APN) is disabled by adding suffix to preferred (active) carrier's apn and type. So, if you select from option "Enable connection": "Never" then you must manually remove this suffix or you can always change "Enable connection" option to something different and let application remove suffix automatically when it enables connection. Option "Never" is just included if someone finds it useful.
Application will also start automatically after system reboot.
Mobile (APN) control is not tested widely with many different devices, so in case of problems please report also your device model and Android OS version.
Note! In battery info section, estimated time left is inaccurate at the beginning but gets more accurate over time.
You can also suggest new features. I will try to implement them whenever I have time.
