nickysor, 13 Sep 2013You have to set brightness to manual not automatic ( which is limiting the brightness for the ... moreautomatic us limiting the brightness. I think you are wrong. Samsung has disabled max. brightness in manual mode so that user do not make brightness too high. I read on displaymate that in manual mode it gets 402 nits and in automatic brightness outdoors it can reach 475nits. hence better use automatic and mine is really very visible outdoors. If that still makes a problem, outdoors disable adapt display and set it to dynamic mode. Also disable power saving mode . It limits max brightness. There is also an option to increase legibility. One can use that.
I have problems with my phone heating up, to such an extend that I cannot keep it close to my ear - heat is quite drastic. I took the cover off thinking that it might be the problem.Any similar problems? Any solution?
well in my opinion, just go for free app battery doctor, it will stop all bkground apps when sleeping so overnight even with wifi on , my battery does not go below 5 %. s4 battery is the greates i have ever seen. may be it is new now for me , and if battery problem is happening to people having s4 for longer duration, samsung has given a fast charger, which charges >50% in 30-35 mins, i can live with that kind of battery till night when you can go home and charge completely ( that too in one and half hours.) so guys battery is not that a big issue. S$ is really coolest and effective product ever .
No heating problems so far, when being charged or connected via internet. My friends were so amazed by this phone especially its looks matched with a very good case. Battery is not an issue at all, it depends in the user when he uses data more often and when multi apps are running simultaneously. Im so glad that I chose this phone over my 1st choice- HTC One. No regrets. Good job Samsung, as always :)

After this you should be able to view your screen very well outdoors.
