Hi everyone, I recently bought a Galaxy S9+ rated for 1130 NITS versus Crystalsky 1000 NITS, well I was truly disappointed when I noticed that the Crystalsky is by far brighter in the sunlight than the S9+.
Anyone more tech savvy then me can help me understand how come that more NITS on the S9+ are less readable than on the CS?
Unless specs about S9+ are a big fat lie I dono't really understand.
Before buying the smartphone I looked into displaymate.com review and the data was confirmed...
I dont get it, NIts are NIts...or there is more than meets the eye?

AFAIK, the smartphone can produce the max brightness claimed only for a very short time. That is the difference with CS

Well even for a very short time the brightness does not compare :-/

Anyway to compare your Galaxy S9+ to someone else S9+ to see if screens are same brightness outside?

Did you ever get this figured out?   I am considering now the CrystalSky?   I have the Samsung S9+ and do like it for flying, so far it is the best phone I have used.

I figured out that when producing professional footage I do really need to see clearly what I'm capturing so I set for nothing less than the ultra bright CS.

Yeah, basically Samsung isn't being very truthful about screen brightness in normal usage.  I have the 1000 NIT CS and haven't seen any phone that'll beat it for brightness.  I'm sure they'll make one eventually, tho.

Comparable on from SmallHD is 3 times as expensive and if you double that they have one with 2500 nits
