    Imported jpegs (not raw) have darkened thumbnails

      I've read many, many posts on this topic, but they all relate to jpegs stored with raw images.  I am importing pure jpeg images taken by my phone (maybe I'm not enough of a photographer to be using LR).  The thumbnails shown by LR are way darker than the jpegs that are rendered on my phone or on my machine (in Irfanview, in MS Paint, or in anything else).  Is there any way to adjust the exposure of the thumbnails produced by LR?  Am I doing something wrong?  I think the thumbnails so dark they make LR unusable -- it's painful to look through pictures like this.  Below is a screenshot comparing the same image in LR and MS Paint.
