    Default Wallpaper Battery Usage

    I think this was answered in a thread a while a ago but I can't find it...

    Does anyone know if any known testing has been done on whether a bright white or colored wallpaper uses more battery battery than say a dark or black wallpaper?

    Has anyone tested it maybe themselves?

    It uses a little more than a darker colored wallpaper since iPhones have LCD backlit screens (the whole screen lights up) rather than LED (only certain pixels light up).

    Not enough to make a difference though. It's not anything to be concerned about.

    I think it actually makes a bigger difference on amoled screens like on Android. Just keep the brightness at about 20%.
