Jolla's display brightness/contrast have been discussed somewhat a lot here, and I suppose I'm not the only one going outdoors and struggling to find the setting to max the screen brightness while not seeing much (even listened to pulley menu clicks and counting them...)

Should we have a flick gesture for the brightness available easier somewhere? Maybe on top of home screen favourites (invissible slider, flick right/left to adjust) or Lock screen swipe from right (previously for favorite ambiences, but now without action) to just max the brightness for a selected amount of time (time selector to the display settings). Any ideas are welcome

I'd actually consider this a bug in the brightness autocontrol which is not up to the task. I do not want controls everywhere - I want to have those things on auto work on auto! And settings' favourites have a slider already

@chemist Personally not using auto adjust to max out the power saving (ambience light sensor off), but sure, auto work in general is great and should be finalized to the best possible outcome with the lowest possible power consumption ;)

Will the light sensor be turned of when you deactivate auto-brightness? In one of the early releases it was buggy and I turned auto-brightness off. I honestly don't get why companies even consider manufacturing phones without a transreflective screen - it adds to their reputation as properly configured software wise it is a battery-saver too.

Patchmanager has an option for placing the brightness slider along with other quick toggles to the event view (option is called "control center in event view"). In my opinion this makes the view a bit too crowded, but lacking a better alternative for the time I prefer to keep it on.
