    AMOLED display outdoors ?

    Can anyone that owns the N1 confirm or share their experience with the AMOLED screen outdoors on a sunny day! I have read reviews that the AMOLED screen on the N1 is useless outdoors. Indoors I read that it was vibrant/unreal/clear etc. Otdoors they could barely see the screen. Is this true? This is important to me. I want the phone but, do not want to spend the money on something I can't see outside as I am mostly outdoors. I had a digital camera that had this problem as it was impossible to see what I was taking a picture of during a sunny day and I had to return it.

    Someone out their share there experience please !

    So long as auto brightness is on (or brightness is turned all the way up) it works fine outdoors.

    The only time I have had troubles was when I had the brightness turned all the way down and I went outside.

    It's been pretty gloomy where I live so I can't tell you about the sunny parts...

    However, I did notice today that while outside on gloomy weather, the screen being at half brightness does look pretty bad.

    Indoors is awesome though.

    There must be some picky-ass videophiles walking this planet because I think the display is awesome as are the colors it produces. Talking strictly about the indoors concerns as I haven't had the chance yet to test the display in sunshine.

    Sunshine. What is that again, exactly?

    Its not as bad as some make it out to be. Its an OLED screen. Its really only bad with sunlight directly on it, and even then only at certain angles.

    I know it's winter and gloomy, but I live in San diego, California and it's in the 80's clear and warm right now. I'm always outside

    I can confirm this.

    I live in Miami, and today was an AMAZING day, 75+ and SUNNY

    Could barely see the screen while outside in the sun, could not make anything out on it.

    This was a bit upsetting, as this may make it unusable on the beach. Might be better with sunglasses on-- haven't tested yet.

    Polarized sunglasses seem to work best IMO....
