    Still hard to see, in my opinion. Not much of a difference between that and the old iPhones. Maybe some but certainly not dramatic enough for me to notice.

    Not sure what they are really talking about as I can view my 5s in the sun just fine :rolleyes:

    I found it to be quite usable in the sun. Somewhat dim, but perfectly usable.

    It's not perfect in the sun, but it's a large improvement over previous models.

    There is another thread about this somewhere. They are talking about using the phone with polarized sunglasses.

    I directly compared my 5s to a 6 while wearing my polarized sunglasses. The 6 is definitely improved. The shades do still dim the screen somewhat but all the color distortion is elimitated. It's quite nice.

    That's my experience too. With good quality polarized lenses it looks far better than any previous iPhone screen, but still not perfect.

    When I try to view my phone in the sun everything vaporizes

    Could this be the same as the next iPads rumoured Anti-Reflective Laminated Display?

    Its definitely better to see than my 5. Since I bike a lot that was a major nuisance. This seems to solve that.
