Nokia 701 "brightest screen" puzzle solved - 1000 nits come to the rescue of sunlight visibility
To put things in perspective, the iPhone 4 sports shows around 550 nits, the LG Optimus Black 700 nits, and the only time we've heard about 1000 nits of brightness on a mobile display was when Sony touted its WhiteMagic technology recently, but it was on a 3" display, and the IPS-LCD with ClearBlack filter on the Nokia 701 is 3.5".
We hope to put the phone through its brightness paces soon enough, and share our findings with you. 1000 nits should do wonders for outdoor visibility, but the battery drain might be substantial in that mode as well, so we are curious how Nokia has handled this trade-off.
