There is no doubt that Samsung has been one of the front-runners when it comes to producing quality smart phones. The Galaxy Series has captured market in large numbers and seems to be getting better by the days. It has always come up with the latest technology and is known for its immaculate display. With the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the case is no different. In fact, its 5.7’’ large screen with QHD display is nothing short of spectacular. Like always, Samsung has added yet another feature to look out for in your Galaxy Note 4.Increasing brightness to the max is a common practice while you are out in the sun but sometimes, even if you have your brightness to the max, the intense sunlight makes it extremely difficult for you to see the screen. With the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, that might no longer be a problem. When the sunlight hits the Note 4 it goes into a mode that gives off extreme brightness, more than usual. The standard brightness of the phone is 500 nits and you cannot change that until you set your phone to auto brightness. As soon as the sunlight strikes the phone, it goes up to 750 nits, making the phone viewable even in the most intense sunlight.The newly introduced brightness mode is so bright and consumes so much battery that you cannot enable it manually, it activates only when you are using Auto Brightness and the phone is exposed to sunlight. When 750 nits of brightness is activated, you will notice a drastic increase in brightness. It gets so bright that it slightly fades away the colors of the screen. To some people, this has come across as a drawback, however for a lot of people, being able to view their phone in intense sunlight is an appreciable change and the washing out of colors does not seem to bother them.The Samsung galaxy note 4 is an eye catching phone with lots of news features to look for including Auto Brightness.
