R0 LCD sun legibility?
 
Hello!
I have a P3 and I hate it because of poor touch screen and most of all poor sunlight legibility :mad:
Does the R0 (which is not touch screen) good under sunlight?

No, most TFT screens don't work well in direct sunlight, the R0 is no exception. There are a few players available with transflective TFTs that work in sunlight (like the Trekstor Vibez), but they're hard to find.

^ I don't think we had any sunlight here since I lent you the R0, so how would you know that? ;)

Joking aside, I bought my RE0 during a sunny vacation in Italy and wasn't that bad, even on the beach. I'd say noticably better than a cheap touch screen, though admittedly I haven't tried the P3.

I could compare the R0 and P3 screens under sunlight but there is no sun here in Paris. But if you want to know how is the screen under the snow I can help you :D

BTW, the R0 screen quality is rather bad and worse than the P3's one, particularly the viewing angles.

Damn, you found me out! In reality I can only say the R0 doesn't look so great under depressing cloudy winter skies. ;) (Same as every other player, more or less.)
