Rate this thread to express how well you can see the Samsung Galaxy S9+'s display outdoors. In case you've been playing Minecraft for 18 months straight, you might not known how to get outside anymore. Well, find the door and walk through it. A higher rating indicates that it has very high maximum brightness and thus fantastic outdoor visibility in direct sunlight.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

Really bright and vivid screen. Super shiny though so at times it can be hard to see the screen because of the reflections.

No viewing issues till date as the screen does crank up very high outdoors.

Outdoor visibility is great especially with Samsung their contrast that changes when it notices your in a bright lit area

These days i'm on the beach and the max brightness kicks in for ~2min from standby then it returns to normal brightness and i struggle to see on the screen. Thats in direct sunlight. I dont know why and how to enable to max when in sunlight.its very disappointing. Its from the heat? I use auto brightness and max brightness kicks in for a couple of min but then it dims and i cant use it . When i adjust the bar it says optimised for sun visibility. But it clearly isnt. All this in normal use.browsing ,some photos,whatsapp...
So for me its disapointing. This is when i need the max brightness most and it let me down

Been using the phone for over a year now in a Tropical Country and even in direct sunlight I have absolutely no issues with the brightness. The phone automatically cranks the display upto it's full potential when it senses a bright environment. Really can't expect it to be any better.
