    The peak brightness is 22% brighter than the S8. With 1,200 nits of brightness there should be no problem in direct sunlight..

    I wonder how long it can sustain that brightness? Not that I'd recommend testing it - these brightness boosts are only intended to be for brief periods.

    The candle/light/AMOLED that shines the brightest, burns the fastest...

    And I've seen quite a few burned Samsung AMOLEDs over the years in showrooms, where they're usually on full brightness for extended periods, like 24/7.

    Good news is that most of us won't need 1200 nits all day, every day. But this Note 5 is so dim in daylight that I will welcome that sort of brightness!

    The YouTube Tech Guy has an interesting video on Note 8 battery life. He reports that with full brightness and WQHD+ resolution he got 9 hours 43 minutes of battery life and 6 hours 39 minutes of screen-on time (SOT) the first day. The second day he got 15 hours 44 minutes of battery life and 6 hours 53 minutes of SOT. Again, this was using the phone at full brightness with WQHD+ resolution. For the details of his testing watch the video here.

    That's pretty good at full brightness (though if that's full-scale auto it will of course vary, and if it's full manual it will never do the boost thing if the Note 8 is like most phones with that feature). Hopefully it will be born out by other tests, since battery life is traditionally one of the pluses to the Note range.
