Convenient use of a mobile phone while driving is important to me. I’m still waiting for my Librem 5, so in the meantime I’m trying to make my Pinephone/Mobian/Phosh a usable daily driver.

I expect that the first four behave the same on the Librem 5.
Screen polarization? Let me explain… I wear horizontally-polarized glasses to cut the glare when I drive. My phone is magnet-mounted on the dash to the right of my steering wheel. To get the best view of my phone, I have to cock my head slightly to the right. Pinephone? No problem; the screen is not polarized, so there is no light attenuation. My Stinking Android has a polarized screen, about 20 degrees from horizontal, so there is some attenuation. When I cock my head (about another 20 degrees), the attenuation doubles and the screen becomes unreadable – even at full brightness.
Q: Is the Librem 5 screen polarized? If so, how far from horizontal?
