How Much Difference Does Dark Mode Make?
Each OLED pixel is just one tiny light, but for those who use their phone for long periods (more of us than we’d like to admit), those thousands of little pixels add up over the hours.
Google’s engineers calculated a 63 percent drop in screen power use between a Pixel phone showing a screenshot of Google Maps in normal mode versus dark mode. Ryan Whitwam did his own dark mode tests at Greenbot in 2014 and saw a 41 percent drop in battery draw when reading Reddit in dark mode. AppleInsider measured 60 percent battery savings. In real-world use, that’s about an hour of extra battery life per day, depending on a few factors. That’s nothing to sneeze at. The more battery life your phone gets, the less often you have to charge it, and so the less frequently you’ll have to buy a new battery.
Different use case, different Bluetooth
Bluetooth Classic is not an obsolete version of BLE as both protocols have their pros and cons. Both versions co-exist and are used for different products. For example when streaming music from your smartphone to a Bluetooth speaker or wireless headphones, the phone will use Bluetooth Classic. When using IPS the smartphone is using Bluetooth Low Energy – which has a small but negligible impact on the battery.
To illustrate some of the main differences between Bluetooth and BLE, we’ve put together this infographic.
