I've had a customer call up saying that after there screen replacement they can no longer see the screen when using their sunglasses.

its an iphone 6 non oem screen from RB, ive used many of these screens and never had someone complain of this issue before. I checked it out and it is very difficult to see when wearing sunglasses. Apart from using an OEM screen is there any thing else that can be done to prevent this happening?

Hi, I know it might sound daft but have you tried to do a soft reset to reset light level sensor?  I had a customer with same issue, I ended up replacing proximity sensor/front camera ribbon and it was still the same (the front camera was faulty) still the same, I then did the reset. home button/power switch together and it now works totally fine and customer happy.

LCD's have a polarising filter that helps to cut out reflections and glare in bright sunlight.
The problem is, so do polarising sunglasses. If your phone and sunglasses filters are aligned in opposite directions this cuts out all the light and causes your screen to look black.
If you turn your phones screen 90 degrees both phone and sunglasses filters will now be aligned in the same direction and you will once again see a normal image.
Try looking at your computer monitor with sunglasses on and tilt your head left to right and you will see the same effect.
OEM or non OEM screens will not make any difference. All lcd's use a filter.
OLED screens like in the Samsung galaxy don't use polarising filters and therefore don't have this problem

this sounds like it could be the issue, I assume an oem screen would solve this issue? I will
try once they come back in with it

Hi Scott,
No this is by design and OEM or non OEM will not solve the issue. Every single Iphone/Ipad or any other piece of equipment that has an LCD display will behave this way. It is not a fault and there is no fix!
It is just the way the LCD's are assembled
Mark.
