To display the maximum brightness on the Note 3, you have to put it in Auto brightness mode. That might seem counter-intuitive because I usually associate Auto brightness to something that is too dim for my personal taste. But in Auto, and in direct sunlight, you can get the Note 3 to display brighter. I only have my DSLR as a measurement device, and how it evaluates light is different how light is perceived in the eyes, but the Note 3 can become 2/3 of a f-stop brighter, meaning it is displaying the screen 66% brighter as far as a camera sensor is concerned. Although I was not able to get the Note 2 to display brighter with a LED flashlight, I did however get the Note 2 to slightly display brighter in sunlight by about 1/3 f-stop (about 33% more light by the unit that camera measures light). Another thing that would help you maximize brightness on the screen is to display Auto adjust screen tone. The AMOLED screens do use a lot of power when a webpage with a white background is viewed, and I believe this setting, when checked, tries to do you a favor by lowering the brightness, but I find the experience a little unpleasing so I usually disable that so that the screen doesn't dim unexpected.

You may have noticed this video is missing a personal introduction and outro, but it will be back once I get a wearable mic.
