Default Glass Cover

If Leo have glass cover (like Iphone) outdoor on direct sun light - OK
But if have plastic cover , we must wait for next phone

I hope HTC to use glass screen !!!

i saw hd2 in real under the sun light. difference with iphone? NO! hd2 perfectly shows its display in any condition. just 2 differences: 1) hd2's glass is more reflecting in comparison with the iphone one, but this doesn't affect its usability 2) the tft-panel adopted in hd2 has got more contrast, black is blacker!

Default gsmarena

Well, what you say makes me a little bit happier, because there is a preview on gsmarena.com and they say HD2 sucks under the sunlight (though the overall preview is very positive, they say sun light legibility is poor)

I also read a post by xmoo who owns a HD2 said sunlight legibility sucked. :confused

Still no conclusive answer. I guess we need a photo comparison between iPhone, Touch HD and HD2.
I can't be happier!

Default mobile-review

According to some pictures from mobile-review (there is a review in russian, google translate is not 100 procent), it looks not so bad (they say itīs better than on previous HTC devices)...problem is the screen reflects too much, but it looks to me colours are not washed out
