    If you remember the section in DisplayMate, "High Screen Brightness and Performance in High Ambient Light", they say that to be usable in high ambient light a display needs a dual combination of high Screen Brightness and low Screen Reflectance – the Pixel 3 XL has both. This is extremely important for screen readability, picture quality, and color accuracy in ambient light. The Pixel 3 XL Screen Reflectance was the lowest ever measured at 4.3 percent. The lower the reflectance, the better the performance.

    They are saying that the combination of brightness and reflectance is why the 3 XL is very readable in bright light even though the total nits of brightness isn't as high as some.

    DisplayMate is the authority when it comes to display analysis. And you can sure see the depth they go to in that article. Our 3 XL display is no slouch and ranks in the 3 best phone screens they've ever tested!
    I agree ,forgot that little detail

    I wish the Pixel had adjustment bars to fine tune the colors sort of like Samsung

    Natural, naturally. Don't like artificially saturated color treatment.

    You guys are making me want to try natural for a bit. I agree it is better for editing pictures, but I prefer the pop throughout the OS. I'm not sure how much difference I will notice once acclimated to natural.

    Give it a try if you don't like just switch back

    Yeah I did. Probably will end up going to go back to adaptive. The natural colors are a little flat. I think I prefer the pop on my phone.
