    Which do you prefer on the Classic; the black or white background on the CrackBerry app and BBM.

    I prefer the black background.....I feel it saves battery and that it's easier on the eyes.

    I read somewhere that it doesn't make a difference on LCD screens.

    There are some apps that look good in a dark theme. CB is definitely one of those. BBM I still prefer the light theme.

    Black theme is easier on my eyes. Especially at night when in bed reading.

    I'm the oddball here... I actually prefer the white background for text messaging and BBM since the BlackBerry Hub has a white background, it's less visually jarring when switching between the two views. Even if the BlackBerry Hub had a dark background option I'd probably still stick with the white.

    On a side note, with LCD or IPS LCD displays (such as those on the Z10, Classic, Passport, and Leap) there are no battery savings when using a dark background since those pixels are still considered to be lit up due to the nature of the display technology. The only time that you'll see battery savings from a dark background is on devices with AMOLED displays (such as the Q10 and Z30) since a black pixel isn't lit.

    The responses on this thread are exactly why I been nagging BBM team for dark theme on bbmx since cross playform

    That is the FIRST question I'm always asked, and the first discouraging observation from BBMX users seeing the dark BBM for the first time..

    I also prefer dark theme and this is the reason, I am continuing with Z30. Waiting eagerly for full dark Hub but seems, now no hope. It was first rumoured to be in 10.3.1 and then 10.3.2.

    Z30 10.3.2 thru CB10
