Google also showed a comparison between the original Pixel and the iPhone 7 which is self-explanatory, as long as you're aware of the screen differences between the two devices. Indeed, Google's data showed that the phone used less than a fifth as much power when displaying black as opposed to white.

Like the LCD panels, the AMOLED displays do not use a backlight and a black screen does not require Red, Green or Blue pixels which intern saves battery life.

Google demonstrated how dark mode minimizes battery drain from the screen.

Google has nibbled around the edges of dark mode for years, which has to be one of the most requested features of the OS among users. Apple's iPhone UI, meanwhile, is also heavy on white, and there's no dedicated dark mode on iPhone either.

Mac Miller died from a mix of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol: Coroner
Last year, the country experienced a record number of drug overdoses, an increase driven by synthetic opioid use, the CDC found. Meanwhile, an empty bottle of alcohol was near his body on a nightstand, with a bottle of prescription pills in the bathroom.

Dark mode draws 43% lesser power at full brightness compared to "normal mode" in the YouTube app, according to Business Insider. I don't think you need to me to tell you, but Google admitting that they've probably wrongly been pushing developers towards overuse of white was something to see.

The number is derived from malware detected by Google Play Protect scans, which covers both applications distributed through its Play Store, other app stores, and sideloaded apps. Another neat reveal coming out of the Android Dev Summit, however, is a feature that will allow users to continue using Android apps while they're being updated. Google aims to support the new form factors in Android.

Google's new contract for Android vendors that want its core apps aims to bring the industry in line with Samsung's security patching model.

Jack Wallen lists flexibility, Google integration, and open source as reasons why he chooses the Android operating system over iOS for his mobile devices.
