I turn round so the sun is behind me so I can see the screen with no problems

I have had 2 Lumia which are both visible on direct sun. Some phones compensate badly Galaxy S3 sounds the screen in bright sun, which is unhelpful

you can change screen brightness and resolution on most but a very sunny day would cause any phone a problem.

use a book or cover screen up a bit to hide sun from screen
Hope i helped the more the merryer dont forget kudos and best answer have a good week

Turn the adapting brightness on from the settings

. You can find it under Settings > My device > Display > More settings

That should solve your outdoor view problem Smiley Happy

This one improvement that the Mobile Phone Manufacturers could put this at the top of their development programmes.
We keep getting new models coming out with so called improvement's that are really cosmetic, they could do something about the reading the screen in sunlight.
