    Default Any Improvement In Screen Brightness In The S5 From The S4?

    The screen of the S4 was the real deal breaker for me (well, that and the physical home button which I DESPISE). Comparing it side by side at maximum brightness to my HTC DNA, the S4's screen was noticably dimmer and whites were a sick shade of yellow.

    Have they done anything to improve screen brightness in the S5? I get nervous about such things when I read about "special battery saving circuitry" as this is usually code for "keep it dim."

    They're claiming it is improved, but until someone does a review we won't know

    They allege it has better visibility in the sunlight...I hope this is true cuz the S4 is not that great in the sunlight

    Ditto the S3. It's a Samsung thing. I'm only here for the removable battery. A daylight readable screen would be nice though...

    with the note 3 they did a thing where if you have it set to auto brightness then whenever its in the sun the screen will go up to something like 30 or 40 % brighter than normal max level brightness . but only on auto. for me the note 3 works great in the sun if they do something like that with the s5 then it should be great.
