    So now that it is warmer weather and I am spending more time outdoors, I am noticing that I can't see the screen on my Galaxy Nexus at all when it is very sunny. I have a screen protector from Verizon but I am assuming it isn't one for glare. Has anyone found one that works so you can see your phone in the sunlight?

    Are you using "auto" brightness? I need that if I'm in the sun or wearing sunglasses in my truck.

    No, I had turned off auto brightness because someone on this board told me months ago not to use it as it could be a reason for battery drain. I can't win! lol

    Funny....I was having the same problem with my HTC EVO (not bring able to see the screen in the sun). I actually started doing the same thing suggested here.
    I use a manually set low screen brightness in doors, and started using the Auto Brightness when I am outdoors or am moving frequently from in doors to outdoors and back.

    you can still use manual brightness....but you have to crank it all the way up (which auto brightness does for you) when you get out in the sun. i have no screen protector at all, and i can easily see my phone in direct sunlight even down here in Florida.
