The dark mode is one of the many useful features available on Android 10, so in this article, I will be showing you how to activate dark mode on the Camon 15 Series. For smartphones that run on Android 9 OS or below, we’ll also be showing you how you can get the dark mode feature on your device, so stay tuned.
What is Dark Mode?
Dark mode is a simple toggle that enables you to change the color scheme of your phone by using light-colored text, icons, and user interface elements on a dark background. This is also called dark theme.
There are lot of benefits of using Dark mode. One of my favorites is the fact that it is very friendly to your eyes. Many a time we lie on our bed operating our phones with a very bright light illuminating our eyes. Too much of bright light hitting the eyes can cause eye strain due to prolonged exposure to screen.
When Android 9.0 pie debuted, one of the features to reduce screen time is the digital well. It is designed to minimize excessive use of our phones. Some of us are really addicted to phone, we operate our phones more than 18 hours’ day. This can cause fatigue of the eyes and the eyes will tend to get weakened as time goes on.
Another reason to use dark mode is that it helps to save battery life. If you are the types that use your phone for more than 5 hours a day, then, it is highly recommended that you use dark mode.
There is a caveat though-your phone must either be using AMOLED Screen or OLED Display. According to howtogeek, when you activate true dark mode, the pixel is turned off, meaning they will not be drawing up and consuming lot of your power-which helps to save battery life.
Finally, Dark Mode gives your phone interphase a whole new experience. Let’s not deceive ourselves, it is beautiful to look at and all icons and texts on your phone will appear sharper and graphically pleasing. Needless to say that you will enjoy using your phone in low light when you activate dark mode.
