    If we all turn our themes to orange with a dark background then Mango will be released instantly.

    Lighter background eats up more. Battery right?

    Light here these old tired eyes cant see some of the text if I dont use the lighter background. If I put blue with dark I cant see phone numbers in the people hub especially on sunlight.

    Light looks great with orange (mango) and teal. Better than any dark theme colors IMO. Then again I don't have a fancy SAMOLED like you focus users (:jealous:) so no extra battery drain for me.

    I'm running orange with dark background right now. I tried the light background but it was too bright for me.

    Dark with red. The white bg shows up tiny flaws in an LCDs backlighting, which I am weird enough to be upset by :)
