Screen

The HTC EVO View 4G is built around a 6.0625 x 3.5625 inch backlit LCD screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. As we'll get into later, it is sufficiently bright to take outside in a few lower lighting conditions, but on the whole, the screen gives about an average performance across the board.

Indoor & Outdoor Use

Because tablets with an LCD screen are very reflective, and rely on a light shone through the screen to display an image, tablets with an LCD screen typically do not do so well when in direct sunlight. Where the HTC EVO View 4G is different, however, is that it manages to reflect less light than many other tablets, and it has a very bright backlight that allows it to be seen in a greater range of lighting environments. It still won't do so well on a bright day in direct sunlight, but it's a start.
