Thankfully, Google just told us how to improve battery life on certain Android and most of the new iPhones, admitting a mistake in Android design in the process.
During its annual Android Dev Summit, Google's developers spent a portion of their time to speak about two subjects in particular: screen brightness and the power consumption behind it. A dark mode phone app is being tested, and so is one for the Google Feed. And what is perhaps even more interesting here is that normal mode at 50-percent brightness is 93mA, while dark mode at 100-percent brightness is 96mA, showing that white mode at 50-percent brightness is nearly the same as dark mode at full brightness. But when compared in Dark mode the power consumption of Pixel drops by 63 percent to 92mAh. As such, the pixel only turns on and uses power when it's any color other than black. Material came out three years ago and we change from Holo, which is nice dark theme, to this white theme instead. The company acknowledged that white is "less than ideal". At full brightness, power draw dropped by 60 percent when moving from normal to dark.
Google seems to have finally realized the obvious - Dark Mode can help with increased battery life.
In the picture below, you can see how much of a difference the dark mode on YouTube is making. Now, in keeping with its view of the future for the Next Billion Users (Google's capitalization), the app has a new UI as well as a new name. But you can also opt to change it to dark mode all the time, or only switch to dark mode when in battery saver mode - which that right there shows that Google knew that dark mode was better on battery than light colors.
