If you’re anything like me, and you have a 4G phone or you’re constantly on your phone, you know battery life can suck these days. One common way to preserve battery life is to keep your screen brightness at a lower level. I realize that the auto brightness feature found on most Android phones is an answer to many, I find that sometimes the screen can still be unnecessarily bright. XDA member, Marinelli.Tv, has come up with a solution that I love and frequently recommend to those who complain about excessive battery drain. It may even impress your friends!
Brightness Motion Pro allows you to adjust your screen brightness with percentage increments by a simple flick of the wrist. Moving in a right hand motion will take you up a notch, moving to the left will take you down. To add to its effectiveness, the app even displays an icon in your notification panel informing you that it’s active, and includes your current percentage. The paid version, Brightness Motion Pro, is only $.99 for a limited time, and allows for more advanced features like, start up on boot, initiate auto brightness, brightness slider control, and more. There is also an ad-supported free version without all the bells and whistles for those who want to try it in its simplest form.
