The technological giant Google has revealed a trick that allows users of devices working with the Android operating system to save on battery consumption.
In the presentation during Android Dev Summit 2018 (Android Developer event, which took place on November 7-8 in Mountain View, California, United States) discussed how several colors require different amounts of energy on the AMOLED screen,
Thus Those who strive to minimize battery costs can do so by running dark mode in applications. To give you an example, Google's presenters, Chris Banes and Alan Viverette, compared the power consumption of Google Pixel and iPhone & # 39; to 7 when they display a screen shot with maximum brightness. In Pixel mode, dark saves 63% of the battery, while the iPhone 7, which has an LCD screen, the level of consumption is the same.
This is related to the technology used in this type of screens. AMOLED models use diodes that emit light and that do not consume much energy when black is displayed, while LCD screens have a layer that illuminates liquid crystals, so that energy consumption on the LCD does not depend on the colors
Google also announced that white is a color that requires more energy, and blue takes the second place. However, these results are Google's rooftop stone, who admitted that it favors a white color in Android applications and designs.
