Code016, 10 Nov 2018Yet their own apps are still mostly having white background. true... I hope they will update this in near future :D
Google just found out what Windows phones had since their release.
Google... always 10 steps behind in terms of innovation...
I really hate white backgrounds. I gave 1* for apps in the play store, for those with white skin only. It´s just so primitve and outdated. Watching an app on a device running windows mobile 2003 and a android device in 2018 the only difference is the higher resolution.
Fixing a problem they created.... material design 2.0 is hideous

O S, 09 Nov 2018Microsoft got a lot of things right with Windows Phone, except the fact they charged OEMs for ... moreMicrosoft made a lot of mistakes with that OS. And that OS was fluid, could run on less RAM and the tile/dark mode combo was great. I am unwillingly dealing with Android. I preferred Windows. And I hate iOS. So I'm just...in limbo
"Perhaps Google could go with a different shade of white that might be more efficient or go for an Ice Cream Sandwich look for Android Q Â– mostly black backgrounds."
- or simply just give us, the users the choice to change based on our preference. Also, introduce day/night cycle where the UI colours change according to our location so in the morning it would be nice, white-bright while at night it would be dark, black-ish. That's one of the main features I've been missing from any and all Operating Systems. Luckily, Mac has this - sort of.
...Android Pie in dark black would look fantastic on Xperia XZ3 (OLED) display!
..can't wait for the feature / update....
also youtube and text messaging app looks much more elegant in dark mode! and yeah it consume less power compared to the white one.
Man...better late than never. Took how many years to realize this?
How long did they wait to give us dark mode for YouTube?
