Are you a techie who knows how to write? Google's device draws 250mA while at maximum brightness in normal mode, while Apple's phone was at 230mA. Indeed, Google's data showed that the phone used less than a fifth as much power when displaying black as opposed to white. That not only saves battery life, it means that the contrast is sharper when reading text on a black background with an AMOLED screen.

Apps with darker interfaces use less power than those that light up your phone's whole screen, and now Google has admitted that encouraging developers to make white the main color for all Android apps and interfaces might not have been the best idea.

Google also showed a comparison between the original Pixel and the iPhone 7 which is self-explanatory, as long as you're aware of the screen differences between the two devices. Google re-iterated that point during its Android Dev Summit and confirmed that dark mode puts significantly less strain on the battery than anything else, reported SlashGear.

Other, less urgent, updates can be run in the background while the current version app is still running.

Banes went on to laud the introduction of dark modes, using the recent YouTube update as an example of the power benefits.

Google is giving developers tools to push users into updating their apps. The calls for a system-wide dark mode in Android have been deafening in recent years, and we can only hope this new information will inspire Google to finally give users what they want.

Despite the fact Files Go was only released last December, Google says that it has already managed to amass over 30 million monthly users.

Dark mode is visually appealing to many folks, but it also helps prolong battery life if your device features an OLED display.

Since my first Android phone, I wondered why I had to go to the app store to get an app that'd allow me to look at the files on my phone.
