    Anyone else have issues viewing their screen while outside? I can't see mine at all in the sun. There wewre many different phones around me and I was the only that couldn't see my screen. I could see everyone else's just fine. I do have mine in an otter case too........

    Auto brightness enabled? The bionic has one of the best screens for outdoor viewing.

    yeah... auto-brightness FTW.
    the Bionic has the best outdoor screen, bar none.

    I agree. My Bionic is usually the only phone in a group that truly IS readable outdoors. Outdoor readability is one of the advantages of the Bionic's screen. I suppose the protective membrane on the Otterbox could be causing you problems, but I have mine in an Otterbox as well and the membrane doesn't affect mine.

    The bionic is actually the first phone I have had that I can read outside. I second the auto brightness feature.

    This is the first phone that I've actually been able to see in bright sunlight. I am surprised at how clearly I can see it when the sun beats down on it.
