    I was wondering if you are having the same problems that I am.
    I have just brought my Desire and I love it but I can

    The screen is weak (as in hard to read) in sunlight. Move out of direct sunlight if possible.

    It's the same problem any touch screen phone has. It's nearly impossible to read in direct sunlight or any level. If you turn the brightness all the way up it helps. I usually stop in the shade of a tree or building if I need to read something or change music. It's just one of those things you get use to. Honestly it annoyed me at first but you realize giving up such a great phone for such a mild complaint isn't worth it.

    yeah, i have the same issue too but it's not really what i'd call a complaint.

    the the fury said, many glass touchscreens suffer from this problem. it really is a case of living with that small issue whilst being blown away by the desires many, many, many plus points.

    enjoy....

    My screen went dimmer after a couple of days use, removing and reinserting the battery fixed it.

    Make sure you turn up the brightness when outside to max, then you should be able to see it, unless the sun is literally shining right on the screen.
