Default 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
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

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.)
