Default Different screen manufacturers?

I noticed a weird difference between my m8 and my wife's. When I look at my screen wearing my sunglasses (polarized Maui Jim's) it looks fine. When I look at my wife's, it's virtually invisible. Rotate them both to landscape and mine still looks fine, and hers suddenly appears like magic. This is with the phones side by side in the same conditions... For what it's worth mine is the gunmetal and hers is the silver one.

if you're really interested in how polarized glasses work and the effects, you can read http://www.lhup.edu/~dsimanek/14/polaroid.htm

The short and sweet is that polarized lenses block light from differnet angles. The glass on the phone is also likely polarized a bit, maybe not even on purpose. If the polarization in the glasses on your head is not in line with the polarization of the glass on the phone it will get darker or even appear blank. You should be able to tilt either the phone or your head and see the display come into focus. Only way not to have an issue is to switch to non-polarized glasses.
