Have a look at settings/display/light levels
Just be careful, set it too dim and you won't be able to see display at all.

Played with the levels...default is 21 and the lowest I could go without total blackout was 3. However, this is only for Auto Brightness. Great for night time but now I have the opposite problem....because I am now using Auto the screen tends to be brighter than it needs to be during daylight......I guess I could spend some time adjusting the screen brightness for all the intermediary thresholds.......But in Auto mode there is still a drain on battery as the device is "polling" ambient light levels frequently.....Again, could mitigate this by changing the setting from the default (1second I think to 5s+). Was hoping that there was a way to tweak the minimum brightness at a system/device level as I tend to use screen brightness in manual mode. Would like to just swipe the brightness down and hit that absolute working minimum by default.
@ Nomad1600 - Thanks...will take a look at the App but was hoping to do this at a system/device level to avoid over dependance on Apps to compensate for such things.
