    Black, my battery life is bad enough without using white. Also the brightness is too high at night using white.
    I wish FB would have a black background.

    Brightness is too high in white. I always prefer black, even on my 1320.
    It would've been great if MS gave brightness profile to every phone with cyan update.

    I have been using black, but would love to use white. Problem is I think it will eat my battery on my 1520
    It actually doesn't. I really like using white now. It's really nice looking.

    By respect to my 1020 AMOLED screen, I only use the dark theme. Oh and my 1020 is black too, so black theme on it looks absolutely gorgeous!

    I regularly use black. I sometimes switch to white, but keep getting back to black. Black is so beautiful with an Amoled screen and the WP UI. Lumia 735. All my apps have the black theme too. Except when I can't change the theme in an app.

    I sometimes like the white one but keep going back to black as i think it looks better. The fact that the white eats battery on my L925, motivates me to stick with black

    I use the white theme on pretty much every Windows Phone that doesn't b*tch about it affecting the battery life (which - so far - has only been the 520 and 830).

    These two phones don't have AMOLED, so they don't say anything when switching to light theme.

    Thing is, I've had the prompt come up on LCD screens as well (such as the Lumia 1520).

    Are you sure? Light theme is actually marginally BETTER than dark theme for LCD screens. The phone should not give that prompt with an LCD.

    Definitely did give me that prompt on the 1520 the second I selected the light theme. Love to verify but I no longer own the phone. Perhaps a current owner can enable the light theme on their 1520 and screen cap it?

    I have a 1520 and switch between the light and dark theme all the time... have never had any "prompt" or message pop up... because it DOES NOT matter on LCD screened phones!

    Maybe there was a bug in the OS that has since been patched up, or maybe you're mistaken, and remember seeing that message from another phone... but LCD screens, as I posted earlier in this thread, do not require any extra power to display a white background vs black... LCD screens are backlit all the time when on, no matter what color the pixels are! Brightness yes, but what colors the pixels are, no.

    I use white with crimson, because I gotta support the team! However, my alma mater is now using a third jersey--black--so it's all getting very confusing....

    Black, white theme just doesn't look right to me. I'll try it, then after about an hour always switch back.

    I like white but don't want to use it on my AMOLED screen so I stick to black.
    Also, white is too bright at night.

    I have used the dark theme on every WP device I've ever used, start from my Mozart, no matter the screen quality or type. I like the white theme with some colors though, but dark all the way.
