    Just wanted to share that the iPhone 6 is much easier/nicer to use with polarized glasses. No funky colors or image drop outs. If anyone cares. :)

    I remember them mentioning that in the keynote while talking about creating the screens.

    This is interesting to hear. I have polarized sunglasses, and often have to take them off to see my phone.

    Exactly! These are the features that keep me in the Apple camp. I love my Ray Bans and always hated having to pop mine up to read my phone. I'm glad someone else noticed and included that in the design. :apple:

    Yep. I can confirm this too, it really does help a lot with visibility. It's an awesome little change.

    same with the 6. wearing my polarized Oakley's, there is no problem looking at the screen and getting the rainbow effect.

    SUCCESS!! :cool:

    It's actually better in landscape (at least with my glasses). Brighter. Portrait looks good but there is a fairly significant dimming.

    Ditto. This is a change, but not a great one considering portrait is the main mode.

    It was uglier previously (colour tinting) but more readable.
