    I as well prefer a dark theme, easier on the battery. And definately easier on the eyes, especially since mine are so light sensitive.
    But light or dark, my Terrific Trophy is still Terrific! :D

    I love it how most apps, including mine, can have both a dark and light theme version and that the app version switches automatically when the user switch OS themes. Thumbs up for WP. :-)

    Dark theme all the way. Always liked apps on my iPhone that had white on black. I find it easier to read. Plus with the screen of the Lumia 900 the black backgrounds and contrast against the colors just pop and look awesome IMO.

    I've gotten a number of comments too on it, people have specifically mentioned they like white text/colors on black background a lot.

    Well I prefer the light them I used that mostly with the focus. With the Lumia 900 mine is black and I have switched several times back to light but mostly I stick with dark ad Nokia blue. I have a black ATT gel case but ordered a generic dark red one hoping to achieve the dark red Nokia WP8 concept look!

    Was originally a fan of the dark theme, but white feels more natural, especially when most of the apps are white. Makes IE feel better too.

    Battery impact seems pretty negligible - how much time are you lot spending in the menus?

    Currently rocking light with red accents. I'm a Gooner :D

    I coordinate my theme based on the liturgical year. I'm a dorky pastor ;). I love Easter, but I don't like the white theme on WP7, too bright.

    Always dark. It looks better, uses less juice and makes better use of the screen technology.

    Dark with blue accents is my favorite option for my cyan L900.

    For me it depends on two things:
    1. When in sunlight use white
    2. Dark environ,ends, black

    But what ultimately decides should be the face of your phone - is it black or white?
