Thanks for the reply guys!!

I'll try to get my hands on the Moto G when available in my country.
I think it'll be good in outdoors. I like this phone because of great value for money
It seems Moto G does have a very good loudspeaker performance.

Haven't tested it in sunlight because I live in London where it rains 90% of the time.

Sigh...

I've used it here, in Brazil, outside, under direct summer sunlight. It's easily readable from about 50% brightness upwards.

In January, even if it was sunny in London it wouldn't be the "strong, direct sun light" that the OP is asking about, get yourself to the Caribbean and test it there!

You can't cater for everyone I suppose.. There has to be some flaws ... Suppose I'm lucky not having the sun they have in the caribbean it allows me to see my phone perfectly.

Thanks for the response guys.

I work in a start-up company so it requires frequent local travel. I rely on the GPS to find the route. I have a 4 year old Nokia N79 and it gives only 2hr battery endurance(It has truck load of other problems like, dead wifi, using 3G will restart the phone, Gallery no longer opens.. etc) So i use it only for Navigation and I use a nokia 1203 for calls and messages.

I tried my friend's Xperia L and Motorola Flipout(Imported!), To my surprise both of them were virtually useless in direct sunlight except as mirrors to adjust my hair

Moto G caught my eye because of its excellent speaker loudness(again useful in city traffic where i live) and value for money. I hope it gives me 12 hrs of battery endurance with 2-3 hrs of navigation and an hour worth of calls and messages.

I was thinking to have a hands-on before buying to check sunlight legibility.Unfortunately, it seems motorola is not going to release moto g in offline stores in india.

If i buy it,I intend to keep it for 3-4 years because i'm going to shell out my one month salary.

hi, I live in the deep south of Spain so we have harsh bright sunlight. The Moto G was not readable in direct sunlight. My friend who has a Nokia 920 joked that I forgot to put in on as his was perfectly readable.

I noticed the automatic brightness doesn't go high enough so I tested it with 100% (and 90% which looks identical). Definite improvement, but a little shade from your hand or turning the display away from the direct sunlight are needed.

Still not as good as the 920 but that has to do with reflection management. Overall I find it perfectly usable now that I installed Lux Lite which stores a custom profile to adjust automatically to the levels I actually need. Battery life is still about 6,5 hour screen so very good compared to other phones.

Hopes this helps.
