If the phone is being used in the office or home that is not in the daylight the visibility is very good. The phone is also good for bed-time reading as its brightness becomes 2 lux. The mobile has HD display but only Youtube videos can be viewed due to Widevine 1.3 certifications. Videos from other sites like Netflix and Amazon Prime can’t be viewed.
