    it has been asked before (see here) and i don't think there is a way, most people want to lower the brightness to conserve battery power :}

    I use Candlelight which allows you to dim the screen.
    Here's the .cab file if you want to try it -

    Just unzip and move the cab file to your Q and install it with file manager,
    After it's installed you'll find it in your start menu, just run it and the screen will dim, run it again the screen will brighten. Toggle it as you need as often as you need - Enjoy

    The screen has two brightness levels depending on the power settings you have selected. It is stil pretty tough to read outside compare to other smartphones I've used.

    hehe... that all you were doing ? yea work on it dude :}
    and it turned out it did "solve" his issue... i think since Candlelight dims the screens only looks brighter when it comes back on, but hey we like happy customers correct :}
