I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 15-inch 4k and love it! Unfortunately, it was stolen in Mexico and I had to buy a new one upon returning to the States.
One of the first things I changed when I got my first 720 was the screen brightness. I switched off the "Adaptive Brightness" setting in System > Display settings and that seemed to make my screen nice and bright white.
Now, on my second computer, even at 100% brightness and with the Adaptive Brightness switched off, the screen looks much dimmer and not as crisp white.
Any thoughts on what might be going on?

I took a look but am not able to see if there is a difference.
Serial number for the stolen laptop was: XXXXXXXX serial removed per forum rules
Serial number for my current laptop is: XXXXXXXX
Are these using the same screen?
Thanks for your help!

It looks to me like the screens are the same, although I cannot tell if they came from different manufacturers. (Lenovo normally has multiple suppliers.)

Checking on both machine's having same MTM 80X7001SUS with the same LCD panel (15.6-inch, 16:9, 1,920 × 1,080 pixels FHD / 3,840 × 2,160 pixels UHD) and same as richk we cannot BOM the parts out for the LCD manufacturer.
I would suggest that you try updating the softwares using Lenovo Vantage to ensure that we have the updated drivers. Then proceed setting high performance for the power settings. Check the brightness comparing when plugged in and on battery only.
If this would still appear dim, then best to check it with the store or call in tech support for recommendation specially if the brightness makes it hard for you to work at ease.
