Samsung took the brightness game in smartphones to the next level with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series. While the vanilla variant, i.e., the Galaxy S22, peaks at 1,300 nits, its two siblings, the Galaxy S22+ and the Galaxy S22 Ultra, can top a whopping 1,750 nits of brightness.
Notably, this is the highest level brightness ever in a smartphone. However, in order to manually experience or enable brightness higher than what the auto or regular manual control mode give you, you need to follow a few steps. (In the automatic brightness mode, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra users can enjoy a brightness level of up to 1,200 nits, which, by the way, isn’t low by any stretch of the imagination.)
To enjoy maximum manual screen brightness on your Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra, open the Settings menu. Tap on Display, and disable the toggle for Adaptive brightness. You will see a new Extra Brightness toggle appear. Simply toggle that on and pull the brightness slider all the way to the right.
As far as the Galaxy S22 is concerned, it also has this same Extra brightness toggle, even if it can’t get as bright as the Galaxy S22+ or Galaxy S22 Ultra. Normally, in auto-brightness mode, the Galaxy S22 enjoys a brightness level of 1,000 nits.
