Often times you may find yourself unable to see the screen on your Redmi in direct sunlight. And it’s because of this, you’ll find it a bit difficult to unlock your screen, and open the notification panel to adjust the screen brightness.
In the case of your Redmi, you can quickly set to maximum brightness with the physical buttons.
Here’s how :
On your Redmi, press the Volume + and Menu buttons simultaneously to quickly turn your screen to maximum brightness.
Note 1: This above method won’t work if you’ve Automatic brightness enabled.
Note 2: While you can increase the screen brightness with the physical buttons on your Redmi, I don’t find something similar for doing the opposite. Therefore, to dim the brightness, you’ll still need to do it from the Settings or Notification panel – the standard ways.
Note: The steps here were written for MIUI V5, based on Android 4.2.2 on a Redmi (HM1W). If you’re having a different model of Redmi or other version of MIUI/Android, there’s a possibility that the steps and screenshots will be different.
