    op update
    UPDATE: It seems so far that the trend of data is showing that usually going from minimum to maximum brightness raises battery consumption rate by 0.10% per minute. With this info we may now aproximate the life of all brightness levels once we know how long it lasts on one of them. Your contribution means even more now.

    just give me a little while to calculate and add this data

    it can be either of those, just please indicate what is on at the time to help with color coding the chart so people know, preferably airplane mode for being in the situation of trying to get the most out of your battery in handheld mode if you are worried about battery life since your'e checking a chart about it

    Wow this is fantastic, thanks for doing this. This may be too much work, but maybe include an option with Airplane mode turned on? I've been getting 4 hours of BOTW on min brightness that way.

    I've been planing on including a color coding of what each test is but haven't had the time, lifes been a bit hectic lately :/ I also should include in the submission form and op that it's preferred that the test be done in airplane mode, I have found out approximately how much screen brightness effect battery life but now I need to find out how much airplane mode effects it

    color coding is being rolled out, it still neads to be added to each data entry but you can see the color key at the top, please suggest any edits you feel would make it better

    Disgaea 5 has 8 hours min brightness on the chart, I'm beginning to think that's wrong.

    Well.....maybe it needs more love tests, and more users with the game to verify. Also, I need to test it with the full brighness, but Work keeps interfiering I don't have time and I only have destroyer mode to win.

    I apologize for not having done what I said with the color coding, schools been getting in the way and I haven't been able to find motivation to do anything of lately, I've slacked off to much and need to get back into gear with this
