Default [Q] M8 daylight readability compared vs. Galaxy S5? [ANSWERED]

I know the S5 has been tested to jave the best "sunlight / ambient light readable" screen of any Android phone.
Can someone tell me how the M8 compares to it, or how it compares to the Note 3 phone which was the previous champ for how easy it was to read/view in direct sunlight? The Note 3 was much better than the M7 apparently.
And blew away the S4 (which is my current phone and it sucks in sunlight).


EDIT: Nevermind, a quick google search gave me the answer to the Note 3 comparison. And the M8 nits of 490 are comparable to the S5's normal nits, but the S5 is capable of higher nit bursts which = better sunlight readability if the screen has less glare.

Utilizing different display technologies, they each have their strong attributes. Comparing the colors they produce, the Note 3’s oversaturated tones have an iridescent glow that instantly gets our attention, but the colors aren’t nearly as accurate as the colors produced by the HTC One M8’s LCD-based display. Viewing angles, though, go to the Note 3 mainly because it retains its vividness more. However, when it comes to outdoor visibility, the stronger 490 nits of brightness from the One M8’s panel is more visible than the weaker 360 nits of brightness pumped out by the Note 3.

Wow, there is conflicting info out there.

At 460 lux (447 nits), the HTC One M8's display is brighter than the average smartphone, which reached just 405 lux. The LG G2 topped out at 351 lux, while the original HTC One hit 375 lux. Samsung's Galaxy S4 and the iPhone 5s, however, proved brighter than the One M8, hitting 480 lux and 500 lux, respectively.
