[Discussion] [Weekly Debate #9] Does Dark Mode Really Save Smartphone's Battery Life? Share Your Views!

Hello Mi Fans,

Smartphones are unquestionably one of the most useful devices of the 21st century. And for most of us, battery life of a smartphone is what concern us the most. Android smartphone owners who want to enjoy longer battery life on their devices might want to try using dark mode, according to Google itself. Google says, dark mode uses less power and saves battery life on android smartphones. What does your personal experience with dark mode say?

The screen’s brightness almost linearly increased a smartphone’s power usage. And the individual pixels have to do less work on dark areas of the screen, and they use practically no juice at all when displaying true black. Among the three primary colors, Google said that blue uses up the most power, at about 25 percent more compared to both red and green. With OLEDs, pixels are essentially turned off when displaying the color black, whereas LCDs keep their pixels lit up no matter what is being shown on the screen.

So, it stands to reason that the mostly black Night Mode will help conserve your OLED handset’s battery life. Google then admitted that it made a mistake over the past several years, as its Material Design initiative pushed for the use of white, and encouraged developers to choose white as the primary color for their apps. Material Design’s baseline theme looks very clean, but all the white elements are causing smartphone batteries to drain faster.

Dark mode is something that everyone has been asking for, for quite some time. And this is something that Google can do without having to limit how fast processors are going during battery saver mode, or limiting data connections, or even adding a larger capacity battery.

Google has released Dark Mode for apps such as YouTube, Messages, Google News, and Phone, and we can expect it to arrive for more apps in the future. Even if you’re not a fan of Dark Mode, it’s an effective way of keeping your OLED phone working longer and also a dark mode is easier on the eyes than a white or light mode.

Reducing intensity of light emitted by the screen, of course, will help reduce phone power consumption
