Dark Mode has certainly been one of the most talked features right now and it will probably be an inbuilt feature in the latest Android release. Recent times have seen users, developers and Google playing around with the dark themes, but developments suggest Android Q might be ready to bring a system-wide dark mode for the entire platform. Android Q Dark Mode does come with its benefit of battery saving but in the long run, this might not be the case.
It was confirmed Android Q will get a system-wide dark mode after looking at the first code dump for the next version of Android, many users rejoiced. But further studies reveal this might not be the case as the dark mode does not bring the ability to the smartphone wat some users might want. The other drawback is the system-wide dark mode may not apply with any and all apps.
As far as Google is concerned, they are making a genuine effort to make Dark Mode apply to more than the system UI and Setting App. Currently, it can only directly modify its own built-in and Google Play apps. Some extra work will be a need to done for the dark mode to work with third-party apps, due to branding and developer resources. According to XDA some of the apps don’t look good without the extra work.
Most of the developers are concerned about battery life. According to the tests run by phoneArena run using a stimulated Dark Mode that used Androids “Inverted Colors” finding suggested as much as 30-50% savings in battery life for stock apps and 20% for third-party apps.
The current finding applies only with a smartphone having OLED screens. Such display generally doesn’t use power when showing pure black colours. On the other hand, LCDs use more power no matter what colour is shown. With the number of smartphones using OLED screens increasing, the number of LCD smartphone are still being used by the majority of users. This nullifies the power saving benefits of Dark Mode, yet it will certainly prove to be easy on your eyes.
