Android device (phone/tablet) that has a display that can be easily viewed in direct sunlight

By | October 24, 2017

I am looking for an Android device that has a display that can be easily viewed in direct bright sunlight. I have tried several high-end cell phones, and they are all challenging to read in bright sunlight. Might need something with a reflective display.

  • The screen size needs to be at least 12.5cm (5"), and can be up to 30cm (12"). Prefer something around 20cm (8").

  • Prefer a color screen, but black and white is acceptable.

  • The device must have a GPS.

  • Lower cost is strongly preferred, although I do not have a specific budget in mind.

  • The Android version that it runs needs to be KitKat or later.

  • Water resistance is a big plus. Will be used outdoors.

  • Brand does not matter.

  • Does not need to have telephone function (can be a phone or a tablet).
