During a recent conference Android Dev Summit, Google engineers spoke about their research and shared tips on extending the autonomy of smartphones.
So, the subject of testing, it was night (dark) mode display Google Pixel. As found by the representatives of the multimedia giant that it not only reduces eye strain but also allows the device longer without pasarici. But blue color in popular colours RGB consumes 25% more energy than red or green, according to the resource 9 To 5 Google.
White color is the most “eats” the battery
To find out how to affect the energy consumption of one or another color scheme of the interface, the authors of the experiment measured the operation time from a single battery charge with different skins of Android.
In the end, it turned out that during the launch of YouTube in the dark mode energy consumption amounting to as much as 60% for maximum brightness, and 14% at half.
So the dark mode in apps affects the energy consumption of the smartphone
The study tested different color schemes (including the green, red and blue), but black in the result showed the highest efficiency.
Note that these results are relevant for devices with AMOLED displays, since the display of the black color of their pixels completely turn off, thereby achieving high energy efficiency.
High energy efficiency for the dark mode is achieved by the fact that the pixels on the displays off completely
While the dark theme is only available in a few Google apps (in particular, Gboard, Maps and YouTube). On assurances of developers, in a short time this feature will appear in all the company’s software products.
So falling consumption in the YouTube app-enabled Dark Mode for different brightness
Recall that in early October, the technology incubator Jigsaw (Google Ideas) has released a new application Intra that allows you to go to the sites that are blocked in a certain country.
