Whenever I use my iPhone in direct sunlight, the screen begins to turn weird looking. Anyone agree or is it just me?

Sure, the smudges are visible, but I'm the only person I know that can use my phone in the direct sunlight. Most phones' screens aren't even visible.

Smudges drove me crazy! I finally put a Crystal film on the screen & that took care of the problem. Oh!, if you wear polaroid sunglasses while looking at your screen it will look weird!

No problem here at all, and I can actually see the screen in the sun, unlike my Treo (or prior PDAs). I live in Arizona and suffice to say we get pretty bright sunlight.

My feelings exactly. Every other phone I have had, the last being a Razr, there was now way to see the screen in direct sunlight. Where the iPhone washes out a bit, I can still read the screen to make it function.

I don't have any problems at all either. In fact, I'm thrilled with it! I could never use my old phone in bright conditions...the iPhone is much better in this respect.
