How is the x in bright sunlight. The galaxy nexus I am using now is horrible in the sun. Even at full brightness.

I am waiting for a latest version of a brand new X phone just to see if solves viewing in sunlight issues. One buggy warranty Repl did have a very bright screen.

All my dim examples & store demos have been on HW from the era of the 1st 422 builds. More here

I use velis auto brightness which is a slight improvement on stock for sunlight ( and better battery). But the sunlight legability is nowhere as good as Samsung's even Sony's are little better.

Thanks for the info. I am outside a lot. So sunlight legibility is important to me

I find the Moto X's screen in the sun is absolutely rubbish. My old Nexus had better visibility in the sun. The X is terrible.

There are two types of screens in the direct sunlight: bad and worse. I've patiently endured that problem for years. Then I found an unexpected solution. When I found out that Gorilla 3 glass is not as solid as it supposed to be I decided to buy a screen protection despite I dislike it. I opted for the antiglare one. After application I discovered two significant changes: All of sudden the white color wasn't white any more but slightly gray with blurred dots in all primary colors (what didn't bother me much). But surprisingly the screen started to look and fell like a sheet of paper and not like a mirror any more. And that's how I eliminated an effect of direct sunlight to the screen.
