Yes, most of the new phones will get you through the day, and the advantage is clearly on Android, as some vendors have equipped their devices with massive battery packs.

During this week's Android Dev Summit, Google told those developers attending that adding a Dark Mode to their apps will result in extreme battery life savings. The primary aim of the app is to help users to free up space on their phones, and today Google announces that it not only has a new name, but also a new look. Keep in mind that the original Pixel features an OLED display, while the iPhone 7 features an LCD panel. At 100% brightness, the battery consumes 60% less battery power using Dark Mode. This is because the individual pixels have less burden on the darker areas of the screen saving the battery life. While white uses up the most power, black used up the least amount. Well, despite the announcement, there's no exact time given by Google as to when we will see the API working on Android devices. For those unfamiliar with Dark Mode, this UI setting flips the usual screen set up of dark text on a white background to white text on a dark background.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery believes Danny Welbeck's injury affected his players
Arsenal fans and spectators have also taken to social media as they reacted to the painful injury suffered by the Gunners' winger. He's helped us with his behaviour, with his quality and his capacity. "We will know [more] about his injury tomorrow".


Google says that the PHA infection rate for "Google Play only" users is 0.09 percent, while the same figure is 0.61 percent for users who also sideloaded apps. Another reason is that Android models with AMOLED panels save a lot of battery life when Dark Mode is enabled. By offering the Dark Mode, Goole is trying to help save eyes as well as the battery on the smartphones, unlike its Material Design.

Google has finally confirmed that dark mode on Android phones uses less power and saves battery life. But there may be independent apps that may offer users dark modes, with YouTube being one such example.
