The display is decently bright, though AMOLED displays aren't the best for combating bright sunlight (the HTC One wins that contest) and auto-brightness is ever so slightly dim, though not so much as the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Certainly, we’re pleased with the results out of its 1080p video recording quality, which sees solid details, minimal artifacting elements when panning, clear audio recording, and good color reproductions.

The LCD display comes protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and offers great viewing angles.

Our daylight images would benefit from a tad more brightness and contrast for example, as would our interior still life shot likewise benefit from an application of the HTC's built-in filter in the Google Play version.
