    Wanted to ask about the differences in dark/light screens on the Z or Q 10.

    Some people seem to think that a dark theme saves battery. Now on the Z10 that makes no sense as black is turning the LCD on to block the light. On the Q10 it makes sense as the pixels are self lit, therefore black is off.
    This make sense?

    I believe you have the jist of it though I'm not an expert.

    That said, there are times I'd put up with a bit higher battery drain to have the option of turning on a dark mode. Sometimes that's easier on the eyes in a darker room, and with poor reading vision...

    in the developer guidelines blackberry writes that oled displays (used in q10) behave like a candle with a limited time of burning. this means that light colors used on a q10 will the display or certain amount of pixels die faster. blackberry's recommandation is to use on the q10 black where ever possible. on the z10 this limitation doesn't exist but the screen is so brilliant and details like curvy font looks so great that blackberry recommends here to use as much light colors as possible. i personally do not like to much brightness because actually neither the os nor any application recognize the daytime and the daylight. using bright apps at the night hurts my eyes.

    the aspect of saving battery power is a nice side effect but mainly its about saving the life of the q10's oled display.

    All I'd like is a bit of consistency. Hub and options pull downs are white on black, but the settings screens are all bright and colourful. It's a little jarring.
