It is not necessary a degradation or damage.
In fact it is rather hard to verify the brightness of the Newt BL without
having a second "reference" device at hand.
Of course once you arfe used to the brightness of modern white BL LCD
displays, the Newt BL appears indeed to be rather dim.

Just my two bits...
