    My wifes iphone screen when outside in the sun can be seen rather well. My Rez screen looks like it was dipped in mud. I have to tilt it up and use my hand to make a sun shield and squint and look a fool just to barely see whats on the screen. Any advice?

    Take it off auto-brightness and turn the brightness up to 100%. Also make sure that your screen is clean. It makes a difference. I can see mine in broad daylight. Some phones are better in sunlight then others. The Rezound is good but not great outdoors.

    How much battery life do you get with 100% and is it with an extended battery ?

    Clean your screen
    Not been facetious, just the mud you wrote of is probably oil and a good cleaning makes a huge difference.
    Mine does it too and mud is an excellent description of it.

    Yes, I have an extended battery and at the end of the day my battery level is about 10% lower than with auto brightness. But that will be different based on your usage.

    As others have said...
    • Clean your screen
    • Turn up the brightness
    • Use a brightness toggle widget that will switch your screen from low to mid to high brightness just by touching the icon/widget on your home screen. It makes changing the brightness much, much quicker and easier.
    I can see my Rezound screen just fine in the sun with the brightness only on about 70%.
    But if it's on about 30%, it's almost impossible to see in the bright sun.

    I am getting 12 to 14 hours easy. I have gone over 24 before. Full brightness and 4G on all the time.

    I use the physical power button to turn my display off when I am not actually using it. but my usage include music (at the gym...so 90 minutes straight) and reading books and news sites. Games still eat my battery like candy.
