    Hi all, I am the PROUD owner of both a Red and Yellow Nokia Lumia 920 and must say going into "Ease of "Access" under "Settings" and turning on the high contrast really makes the home screen look so awesome on both the Red and Yellow Phones! Has anyone gone in and done this? If so what do you think? I really like the black tile theme it presents on both phones, especially my Yellow lumia.

    Here are my screenshots! I agree, it is a good change. However, it does suck away the bright tiles but then when you own a pac-man phone, who needs bright tiles? ;)

    I think so too, thanks Laura! Looks really awesome on the yellow Lumia as well :)

    Ninjaap - sorry to hear, I do not use those on my lock screen so I have not experienced those issues. I will be keeping it on high contrast for a while - I am liking it and it works for my setup :)

    I like high contrast. I don't like the way it underlines unread mail instead of it being the accent color.

    Does look pretty sweet (to me) on my 820 with a white case. Looks equally good on white 920's if not better, personal preference notwithstanding.

    Guys this isn't a theme! It's ease of access - making things more readable, removing colours etc for users who have difficulty viewing certain colours etc. So you can't expect your dynamic lockscreen, accent colours etc. For ease of access - it does exactly what it should do!

    I understood, and I think that's pretty cool...

    Yeah it is a shame about the lock screen issue, but then as mentioned it isn't a theme as such.

    It does still use the accent colour choice here and there, like on mine the weather app kept the orange theme choice which i thought looked cool against the black and white.

    Funny you say that, I have been watching my battery since making the change. Hopefully it helps!

    Technically, Ease of Access should make a great theme. (Because it's awesome)
    And, it helps save battery life as well, since technically most of the phone should be black.

    But, I have a feeling that this works best on AMOLED screens, since if it's black, the pixels are technically off.
