    I'm a die hard emailholic keen to have a Dark Theme for reading and sending emails. I have a Z30 and I'm optimistic an email dark theme could just make the battery life much bigger for all BlackBerry Devices.

    Battery would be affected only if the screen is AMOLED. Black or dark theme doesn't affect the battery life if the device is an LCD device. Passport is using LCD I guess, unless they change the specs at the last minute.

    Great well appreciated. So at least for the Z30 which runs on an AMOLED might be of a difference. Also dark themes are less stressful to the eyes than a white theme

    I use a Q5 and whenever I am browsing on the CB app (dark theme) it consumes lesser battery as compared to a news app (Times Of India) which uses white screen.

    Good to hear, I always use dark themes for my sms, crackberry. If the Hub is dark why not the emails?

    Q5 is LCD.

    Battery life you're noticing isn't due to the screen lol, it's the apps.

    Or placebo effect.

    In fact, the funny thing is that LCDs consume slightly more with black pixels, because the crystal are excited...

    Dark theme for BlackBerry HUB may arrive soon with 10.3 inbuilt on Passport and as an update to other OS 10 devices. Should be a good extra boost of battery life for Amoled devices, z30 and q10.
