With a blind inside, you can get the best insulation. However, the heat gets inside because
sunshine comes in through the window and strikes the blind.
The gap between the blind and the window can get very hot because of the greenhouse effect.
This result is desirable in the winter but not the summer, when you may have a
cooler room if you just leave the window uncovered and let the sun and air in.
You can get interior blinds made to warm a room in the winter if that's your main goal.
They absorb sunlight, and they also provide insulation where you need it.
On the other hand, interior blinds for summer reflect a lot of light on the outside (exterior) surface,
which maybe made of a different material or made a different color than the inside surface.
In general, a white blind works best for reflecting sunlight, but you can also find (more expensive) specially coated blinds that reflect the maximum amount of sunlight.
With a solar screen tacked up on the outside of a window, most of the sunlight is filtered before it even gets to the window. The screen gets hot, and you end up with an insulation barrier to
keep that heat trapped, but it's all outside the window, which makes for a cooler interior.
