Do you use dark mode on your phone? (Poll of the Week)

I use dark mode for everything, but I know not everyone loves it as much as I do.

If a dark mode exists on any product I own, there’s almost a 100% chance I’ll enable it. Maybe it’s because I use phones that don’t last very long on a charge, or maybe I’m just so used to looking at an interface that doesn’t blind me when I unlock my phone in bed. Whatever the reason, I’m all-in on dark mode.

Not everyone feels the same way I do. While there are benefits to using a darker interface, dark mode also makes text harder to read, harder to comprehend, and can make you feel discomfort when you do look at a bright screen.

Love dark mode? Here’s why you may still want to avoid it.

Google is doing what it can to bring dark mode to just about every part of your smartphone. Android 10 introduced a dark theme to Pixel phones, most Google apps support dark mode, and Google is letting Pixel users schedule dark mode to turn on and off at a specific time in Android 11. This feature is partially available to Pixel phones already, thanks to the new Feature Drop rolled out today.

What about you? All-in on dark mode, or do you prefer lighter interfaces? Also, I’m talking dark mode as a whole — as a smartphone them, inside apps, the works. Cast your vote below and speak up in the comments with your thoughts.
