    In such cases I put brightness on full, it usually helps.

    If you're NOT trolling and you're NOT blind and you know how to use your device then that still leaves the 4th option of being less defensive and that you have a defective device.

    Don't be ridiculous. This is not an isolated incident. Many experience the same issue in direct sunlight.

    Congrats on being perfect. If you noticed...the OP is not the only one who notices this issue. Almost everyone else agrees. I too have to turn the brightness up all the way and take off my sunglasses if I cant find a shady spot. How do you even see this as trolling. The OP has a specific question

    Im sorry but you sound incredulous at the fact that this piece of technology could have a flaw. Guess what, it does. In fact, it has a number of flaws.

    It's not a flaw, it's a feature, reminding you that when you're outside in the warm sun, there are other, better things you should be doing than staring at a smartphone screen.

    Make sure your next phone is equipped with vee/dpo from Quicklogic. We should see phones using their cssp to solve the sunlight issue in Q 3.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk, the whole point of my first post was that if you can't see your screen at all you probably have a device problem if it's not a settings problem and you should look into that.

    Ok, I like that feature.

    Yeah, me too lol

    *sigh* yes we know. I also know I wouldn't trade my N2 for a One.

    For the last time, it is nothing to do with a defective device. It's an inherent problem with this particular type of screen.

    Ughh... I've said AMOLED screens aren't the best in direct sunlight, I get it. But you should be able to see the screen. I've made a point of quoting "at all" in every reply because there is a difference between difficult to read, or I have to take my sunglasses off, or I can't see it at all.

    We don't want someone who has a genuine brightness problem with their device reading this and thinking that their phone is fine and it's just inherit and living with it.

    Fingerprints and smudges are NOT the issue. My screen is essentially BLACK in sunlight. The screen is useless in sunlight. This is a major design flaw in an otherwise outstanding device. I am reluctant to purchase yet another screen shield because I am not convinced they will do any more than darken my screen image.

    Have you taken it in or tried another note? That's not normal

    I don't think it's a design flaw per se. I think it's a limitation of the technology. As this is my fourth AMOLED device, I knew what I was getting. For me the positives on the GN2 certainly outweigh the negatives.

    I had the same problem I could not see anything in sunlight and this is the way a solved it.
    I use the phone outside in the "Negative colour " mode. It reverses the background to white with black letters instead of black background with white letters. Obviously you cannot see your photos well and your screen color change, but you can read the emails and other text perfectly.
    This is how you set it:
    -Setting
    -Accessibility
    -Negative colours
    Can change it back at any time by removing the mark
    It works well.

    In another forum it was suggested to turn on the automatic brightness. "when Automatic Brightness is turned on, the Peak Brightness becomes significantly brighter in high ambient lighting than is possible with Manual Brightness, up to as high as 475 cd/m2, which is 34 percent higher than is possible with Manual Brightness." I did try this as well as several other people and it does make a difference. Try this and see if it helps.
