The DJI Smart Controller is a great piece of hardware for those that don't want to load 3rd party applications on to. If you want a bright screen that is brighter than a mobile phone (or you don't want to use your own mobile phone!) then it's the perfect addition. At 1000 cd/m2, the display is approximately twice as bright as conventional smart device screens.
Don't forget, you can also keep your standard controller paired for times when the smart controller is suitable.
The DJI Smart Controller has a built-in 5.5-inch 1080p screen, providing an ultra-bright display to keep your live feed easily viewable, even in direct sunlight.
