Google's dark theme solution will imporve power efficiency

The dangerous apps are disguised as device boosters and cleaners daily horoscopes and battery managers

Using an OG Pixel with an OLED panel, Google engineers ran some tests to see how much display brightness and color affects battery life. So it follows that using apps with more black would save your phone battery. In a way, that statistic kind of explains why scientists have warned against prolonged exposure to blue light. Dark Mode helps power conservation in devices with OLED screens as the pixels are completely turned off unlike LCDs where power is required to display both white and dark shades.

As you may be already aware, Google has recently started introducing dark modes on several of their apps, most notably including Messages and YouTube, a move that has been applauded by many power users and regular consumers alike. As the name implies, Dark Mode reverses the white background to black which is said to be more comforting to eyes. As SlashGear says, there's nothing inherently wrong with the design and layout of the Material Design.

The Verge noted the feature is meant to essentially push users into updating their apps (i.e.it's a fail-safe against those of us who refuse to update out of sheer laziness or, you know, because it requires like two extra steps).

Samsung wants its foldable phone to have a long battery life. This is because the individual pixels have less burden on the darker areas of the screen saving the battery life.

The company also admitted that it had made a mistake in encouraging app developers to use the colour white as the main colour for their apps due to its negative effects on battery life.

Meet Trump's New Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker
This is the first time in U-S history a president attacks a Cabinet member as frequently and harshly in public. The attorney general, for his part, proved determined to remain in the position until dismissed.

Also now Google has been promoting dark theme to be used in other Android apps too. Keep in mind that the original Pixel features an OLED display, while the iPhone 7 features an LCD panel. Unfortunately, it's led to an inconsistent experience on mobile devices.

Android is Google's smartphone operating system that is hugely-popular.

Google hosted its 2018 Android Dev Summit on Friday, in which it talked about all things Android.

Files Go has been rebranded Files by Google, and the updated version of the app is starting to roll out now.
