It has a Corning Gorilla Glass with an ambient light sensor and very good color mixing and harmonization. And this makes the phone far brighter than the iPhone 4s as you can confidently use it in the full glare of the sunlight without it affecting your eyes.

The colors of this phone are not far-fetched just like the older iPhone versions as they come in a limited variety of colors which makes it easy for the intending buyers to choose one out of these colors. The phone comes in Black, Silver, and White.
