    N1 screen in daylight

    I'm considering the N1 for my new phone but have read that the screen, although is wonderful inside and in the evening, is almost not usable in daylight. Have any owners had much of an issue with this?

    I checked it out for myself and honestly its really not any worse than any other phone I've ever had. Any phone is hard to see in direct sunlight. But really would you ever have the phone angled straight up while using it outside? I usually have it angled towards me when using it and I have no problems seeing what's on the screen while outside

    with full brightness it's usable. other than full brightness just like any other phones it's really hard to see.

    I work outdoors a lot and I use my N1 a lot during work. It's the same as any other phone. Just turn the other way (the screen not facing the sun) and you should be good.

    +1 on the "Just like other phones". I don't notice any difference between the N1, G1, or my Blackberry.
