Finally a screen bright enough to use on the beach! The auto brightness poweres up to max and it's very visible and no appearance of being washed out.

Only downside is power consumption shoots up and really sucks the battery down fast. Looks like I might only get 4 or 5 hours out of it.

The laminated display and 600 Nits of brightness all made that possible in the Sun. Naturally the battery will deplete quicker, but none the less, this is a good story to put the brightness to the test.

Yeah I agree!

The battery life sucks though :(
