Well that's a deal-breaker for me. These days pretty much ANY phone hardware is more than capable enough, so I'll just buy something that either has a dark theme or can be modded to one. Sorry, Google...
Just so you know, my already not working sony ericsson got a lot of themes. You could also download more. Its something that was used a long ago and it was awesome. They even do not need creativity to copy that. They are just lazy/stupid/?...
I loved the default dark theme on my Nokia N8. Currently using an Android, software wise it is kinda superior to Symbian but there's no theming options and no dark theme. It sucks..
Man, that's hella lame, cause the dark theme looks 10x better than stock Lollipop, IMO.
Damn, it's becoming more and more obvious that companies have declared a war on us, doing exactly the opposite of what we want.
appleisdabest, 11 Sep 2015thats why iOS is still da best, poor android usersReally? Last time I tried iOS (and no I'm not using Android either, both are spyware) you couldn't change the icons, launcher, add widgets or anything. They all look the same, just changing a bit of color according to the wallpaper. Get a real phone. ;-)
I dont like the material design of lollipop, hate it on my Z at the moment and im thinking of rooting my phone to a custom rom.
What Google Does not understand is that we need a tool to give us a choice to Adjust the resolution
I mean we're getting closer to 2016 WE NEED THIS
Cadis Raizel, 11 Sep 2015Just so you know, there is a thing that we call brightness control as a remedy to the situatio... moreBrightness isn't enough at night. Besides I don't want "dark", I want " black". As in "I have an amoled screen you stupid google dev!"
ben, 10 Sep 2015Not having a dark theme in android is kinda dumb considering how blindingly bright lollipop is.Just so you know, there is a thing that we call brightness control as a remedy to the situation. lol.
i missed theme changing era when symbian still alive
i always prefer on darker theme
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2015It's easy on the eyes thoughit definitely not. in some rare occasions and tasks may be. but most time not.
mir, 10 Sep 2015Good. A dark theme would be dull and a bit depressing indeed to look at.It's easy on the eyes though
Dark themes are a welcome option for people with AMOLED displays who want to have a longer battery life. Oh well.
Most certainly it wasn't fully ready for release, probably they didn't figure out how to implement it in many system apps like the google one, for example. No trouble, it will be ready by the next release and there's a strong possibility google will leave the current code there and people will quickly find a way to enable it if you really want to test it out.
