Dark Mode May Not be beneficial

Recommended Posts

I guess it qualifies as an "article" - although, by its own admission it is a "blog".  There were a number of conclusions by the writer, but he never actually quoted or cited and studies.


There may not be any "proof" that dark mode is better on the eyes, saves battery life or has any other benefits - but then, there is no proof that light mode does any of these things, either.


In the end, it remains a personal choice which mode we use.


I do remember when light mode firsts started and when all computer screens were, essentially, dark mode.


Just goes to show, if you wait long enough

Actually, the writer of the article did admit....


There are some researches that claim that there is no conclusive data that proves dark mode has any benefit other than extending the battery life of your gadget.


Dark mode does extend the batter life of your device if it has an OLED screen (It won't make a difference on an LCD screen). In fact, this was the only benefit I ever had heard of. I never heard of it potentially reducing eye strain before reading this article (that basically debunks it, lol)

disclaimer:  I didn't read the blog


There have been some studies that indicate that super bright displays, or displays that are adjusted more towards blue (colder) do cause eye strain.  Generally you want you brightness to be the same as your ambient lighting and your warmth to be around 5000K


Personal observation:  I generally adjust my display throughout the day according to the amount of sunlight coming in otherwise I find my eyes get tired more quickly.


I dont use darkmode during the day, but sometimes at night in a very dark room I will use it because it is...well...darker.  But I find it harder to use during the day

Personally on my computer I lower display brightness way down. Due same for laptop and tablet with blue light filter enabled.



Some say I am not very bright. ūüėČ. Whereas¬† I say I'm so bright even at a young age I was called sunny as in Hey Sonny.
