    No way the E4GT beats the MoPho in direct sunlight... No way.

    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.)]
