How does this compare to Moto Photon in direct sunlight?
the GS2 is by far the best screen for viewing in direct sunlight. and yes that even includes the retnia disply
No way the E4GT beats the MoPho in direct sunlight... No way.
then i must have had a defective screen on mine. cause i have had both. and thiers no doubt my GS2 is better than my x-phonton. even the viewing angles are better. and i have no problems veiwing my GS2 even with my sun glasses on.
photon is better in direct sunlight.
This is the correct answer. I own neither device (if the ET4G fixes the LOS issue prior to nexus prime I will go with the ET4G) but I found stores that would let me take both phones outside (as well as the evo3d). I wsa shocked that the photon showed virtually no fading in bright light (the evo3d completely washes out). The ET4G was in the middle - quite readable but definitely suffering.
While there are some complaints about the pentile design of the photon display; it does a very good job in bright light.
[My preference for the et4g over photon is largely due to formactor and I cannot stand motoblur/locked boot loaders (i know the boot loader key has been leaked.)]
