    Start screen looks better with black, so I use black for 95% of time.
    But apps such as SMS and others are so awesome with white background, so I use white sometimes, also I adore white keyboard.
    Yes sir, but i guess you are using LCD display, not amoled one?

    My display lol

    Display Type IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
    Size 4.5 inches (~62.9% screen-to-body ratio)
    Resolution 480 x 854 pixels (~221 ppi pixel density)
    Multitouch Yes
    Protection Corning Gorilla Glass 3
    - ClearBlack display

    So, no amoled but I have ClearBlack display and I love it.

    Right now I use white background and multicolor background.

    Is it just me or when I switch to white theme, the photo app still shows in black theme?
    That's one of the reasons why I don't use the light theme!

    I prefer black scheme. It looks natural on Windows Phone.

    Display Type IPS LCD
    Difference between white and dark theme on amoled and LCD display is way big, that's why i asked for your display type.
    To be hones, amoled is great.. but i love so much white that i think on swiching to 830 just for it. Yes, i'm serious.

    I use black when indoors and it saves on battery life, then outside I use white, yes it does eat my battery but I don't have it all the time as sunny weather here in ireland is scarce, I only use white in sunny conditions.

    if you really have a L520 you don't have to worry about background color vs battery. It doesn't make a difference on LCD phones like the 520. What might use more battery outdoors is setting brightness to adjust automatically

    Its generally good practice as I have my Lumia 520 two years now and the battery is as fresh as the day i bought it, its because of (in my opinion) trying to maximise and not over use the battery. But yes I do agree with you.

    Black looks better with transparent tiles, although it would be nice if the keyboard was a bit darker.
