    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

    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.
