    I am going to be outside all day today. What would use less power? Black background with brightness on high or white background on low? I normally have a black background on low but cant see anything in the sun.
    Thanks

    Typically on AMOLED screens, a black background will use less power than a white background.

    Close to end of story.

    It simply depends on how much stuff is displayed on that black background screen.

    Oh, and why low? Medium and above is usable out in the sun. Or, go auto.

    I am a heavy user so I try to make it last as long as possible
