    I did not notice this before, but when direct sunlight hits the light sensor, my screen resolution tries to change on the auto feature and it looks completely washed out. Does anyone else noticed this? or is just on my phone.

    As soon as my device is moved into a shade, it adjusts back to normal crisp resolution.

    I have my device set to Auto Brightness.

    Mine is the same. Just overcompensating in the battle with the sun on who's brighter.

    You can turn this off now with the latest update. The setting is under Touch+Display.

    Mine it feels like the color blows out. The tiles look like they're bleeding a little outside their edges. Is that what you're talking about? Just figured it was bumping up contrast, etc. to make it as legible as possible.

    You mean display+touch.

    There is an option to turn off the "Sunlight readability", hope that is what you are taking about. I turned if off now. Let me see if this will fix the issue.

    In direct sunlight, I could barely see the screen of my iphone, so I am glad that this phone does whatever it needs to in order for me to see it in the sunlight.

    I actually think that sunlight readability is one of the best features of this phone. It prevents glare in direct sunlight, which helps a lot. I remember that when trying to use previous phones in sunlight, it was near impossible to see anything. I had to use my other hand to try and block the sunlight so that I can see the screen. I just don't see this feature as a negative!

    Yep, it's normal. The phone kicks into super bright mode which blows out the colors, its a compromise so that you can actually see the screen in direct sun light, cool feature.
