Thanks; well this contradicts what folks above said (I know the note has a more neutral prettier screen as I can compare them with the my razr in the shop) but I was worried about what happened outdoors.

I haven't had any issues at all being able to see the Note 2 under direct sunlight. My sister has the razr maxx and funny enough we feel the opposite. Her phone is definitely harder to see under direct sunlight.

I have the razr; and never seen the note 2 outside hence the question; but for me the razr is a bit hard to read on auto (outside) but if i put it at 100% it is easy to read in very bright sunlight (I have a toggle on the front to switch from auto to 100; actually it is a three way toggle; 20, auto, 100 (I use 20 at night)

Now that I have the note 2 for a couple of weeks i wanted to update this thread (in case someone finds it with a search engine). Without a shadow of the doubt the razr is brighter outdoors (if both phone are on max brightness and power saving is disabled). The note 2 can be difficult to read in very bright (but not direct) sunlight. I only had issues with the razr when the sun actually hit the display. Mind you the note 2 has a lot of great features (over the razr) but visibility outdoors is definitely not one of them.

Note 2 screen tech is a full year ahead of the RAZR. Its much brighter outside if you disable (as you should) "auto adjust screen tone"

The note II and razr both use amoled displays however the ppi and brightness of the oled's in the note II's amoled display are not anywhere near as bright as regular led displays as produced in the razr. The trick to oled's is they conserve battery consumption by not lighting blacks or darker colors on the screen and this producing the dark colors through no wasted battery. In sunlight and directed light even with this screen cranked up, it is not bright enough to withstand all the glare and thus amoled and super lcd screens would be better suited.

Ok while I disabled power adjustment for the display and set max brightiness i missed the "auto adjust screen tone" setting (which I wished was lumped in with the power adjustment setting rather being placed in yet a differnet location); anyways long story short disabling auto adjust screen tone improved visibility outside but it was still not as bright as the razr. Mind you the razr isn't great outside but does better than the note 2.

Btw the last really great phone I tried outside was (and htis really shocked me) Photon; I wa totally amazed how that screen technology performed outside it almsot seemed brighter outside than indoors.

No, the RAZR is brighter outside. I don't use auto adjust, and with both on 100% brightness the RAZR is brighter.
