Sun glare on screen
I've noticed while outside, I'm having to turn my screen display all the way up to 100% to see my screen, while indoors I have it at about 30%. Talk about battery killer. If others are experiencing this same thing, what are others doing about it?

I have noticed the past couple sunny days (they are far and few between for spring ) but the only thing that I can recommend if it bothers you that much is set the brightness to to auto adjust.
How ofter are you going to be using your phone outside for prolong periods of time anyway?

Just as an aside to this, someone in another post about a week back said they had talked to an HTC technician who said that their own internal tests showed that from about 75% brightness on down to 0, there was no discernible change in battery usage.
Whether or not that's true, since reading that post I've cranked my brightness level to about 70%, and I've noticed little or no difference in battery life from when I had it at about 20%.
Also I tried the auto adjust option, to me it doesn't auto adjust whether in dark or bright environments, is it just me?

I can barely see my screen in the sun regardless of wether or not I have the brightness all the way up or down. I hate it. I have a screen protector that I got from verizon and wonder the same thing... if a different screen protector could help fix this problem? any suggestions?

Here's a lil trick to know what the screen brightness percentage is: Menu..settings.power..power saver settings..screen brightness settings..slide bar to just before the C in Cancel for 70%..ok.. It will show % under screen brightness settings label
