    Hi guy

    I just had a quick question... Some people say that having the AutoDim feature OFF saves battery life...

    How true is this?

    I would have thought that having it ON would save battery life as it adjusts automatically according to ambient light.

    Can someone with experience with a Blackberry explain this to me that how having AutoDim OFF saves battery life.

    Its confusing to me too but from what I heard, when its on the phone is constantly sensing the light and that takes up life. I havent tried it though

    I haven't noticed any difference between the two settings.

    Do you have your AutoDim On or Off?

    i keep my autodim off. i dont notice any huge drain nor gain on the battery.

    i do notice that in bright sunlight the screen automatically gets brighter in order to see it better. once i go back inside into artificial light, it dims back down.

    i keep my screen brightness on 20%, which is more than bright enough in normal inside light conditions.
