    I'm really tempted to try and use light theme but I heard it rinses your battery is there any truth in this??

    If you have a phone with an OLED display like Lumia 1020, 925, 730, 930, etc., Light theme uses more battery than Dark theme. Otherwise, no more battery drain.

    Simply put, if your phone shows a message reading, 'Because your screen is optimized for dark colors, choosing the light background will use up more of your phone's battery.' when you choose Light theme, it actually uses more battery. If nothing like this image shows, you're fine to go with it.

    In some places light theme actually looks better (my opinion). You can try it for one day.

    I'm using Light Theme all the time. I thought it will drain my battery but i guess Lumia 920 is ok with it.
    light theme is better than the dark theme.
    what do you think?

    Lumia 920 has LCD screen, so white does not drain the battery.
