    Inc2 screen in bright sunlight?

    I have been trying to make a decision on getting the D3 verses the Inc2. I have had the D3 on loan a week. Hows the Inc2 screen in bright sunlight, with and without sunglasses? This could be what tips my scales

    Thanks

    it can get washed out in the direct sun. As for glasses, depends. Do you have UV filtered glasses or not?

    I find with my UV filtered sunglasses, its harder to see ANYTHING on a screen. At the beach I swore my regular camera was broken as I couldn't see the display. Take the glasses off, and I can. But that doesn't happen with my non-uv sunglasses.

    Haven't used a D3, but the dinc2 does better than my Droid X in the sun. It is not amazing, but it is readable in most sunlight. Just make sure to have the brightness up or on auto.

    As far as sunglasses, it is fine as long as they are not polarized. Polarized can cause some issues reading the screen depending on how you hold it.

    Thanks folks. I wear polarized prescription sunglasses and oddly enough the D3 looks awesomely clear to me no matter what way I hold it.

    Being in the sunniest place in America, i don't think my vote counts as most of the time when I am in direct sunlight It gets very hard to see.

    I have the DROID X2 and I can see the screen clearly in the sun. The reason for that is cause it has a anti-glare screen.

    The X2 and the D3 both have an IPS pentile screen. These are more reflective and work better in sunlight. The dinc2 Super LCD is very good in sunlight but not the best.
