Hello Kaspro

You should set the back light to 30 seconds or 1 minute. (I personally set it to 30 seconds)

The brightness in automatic is fine, but to save more set the manual control to 1/3 of the bar.

Hope that helps

Francis.

Thank you Francis, but i wounder about the option in the quick tools setting which turns off/on the backlight, i'm not quite sure what this is, but i assume its the LED backlight

Oh, that one in particular sets the back light values to maximum when active and then back to your normal settings when off.

Re: Backlight battery usage!

I'm using my backlight ON all the time, but set the max brightness to ~75% with Autobrightness and it is set to 30sec . At night i use the PowerSaver with everything OFF but the phone part. Like this , the Display uses about 40-45%
