Who else is annoyed with the Screen Brightness being an eye sore??

I've had a cranky nights & mornings because of the excessive Screen Brightness issue on my Nokia Lumia 820, Or IDK if all WP8 users suffer from this(as I didnt see anyother WP8 than mine yet). But Using it at Night or in Dark room or while Night Driving is an EYE SORE, and a common reason of IRRITATION.
Q1. Is it a problem w/ Ambient Sensor or OS is such?
Q2. Is there an update in pipe to fix it?
