First of all, let’s start why smartphone manufacturers (Samsung, Apple and many more) these days choose to use OLED instead of LCD. And these are their reasons.
Starting with iPhone X, Apple has started using OLED screen on its iPhone. Apple move to OLED was deemed necessary because of mainly these 2 reasons:
1) battery technology doesn’t improve that much since the past decade and
2) the new iPhone and future coming iPhone come with everything screen, which literally translate to more battery power needed to light up the whole entire screen.
And because of OLED, not only newer and much better in technology when compared to LCD, but also it can show better sharper colors and when right color is chosen, it does save more battery life, so OLED was finally chosen by Apple as the current standard.
That’s also the reason, Samsung have been using its version of OLED screen called AMOLED since long time ago on all of its flagships, to compensate on the Android optimization that it can’t do very well – unlike Apple which does have full control on both hardware and software within one company so they know exactly where to optimize, Samsung is using Google Android which is not within their own control, they take whatever released by Google then merge with their enhancements, skinning, app store and their own apps.
Do this one thing to save even more OLED phone’s battery life
Believe it or not, picking the right color for your wallpaper can save you a lot. Your phone battery will last longer within a day, while doing this over and over again will make your overall phone battery life expectancy also last longer as well since the lesser times you charge your phone, the lesser the battery cycles getting reduced. You also get benefit from the reduced amount of electricity being consumed – since lesser times a charging is done.

Well, black is boring…
As boring as a Black color is, it’s one of the most seen color in one’s life. You included. Website text color normally is in black color. Your computer keyboard likely is in black. Night time sky is also black. Most of men shoes are also black. Our own shadows are black. So like I said earlier, actually black is the most seen color compared to the rest color.
But why black is so special that it can save OLED Android and iPhone Battery?
The answer lies within the technology behind OLED screen. Unlike LCD screen which does requires backlight, OLED screen illuminates themselves without the need for additional extra backlight. What happen with black color and why it’s so special – it can save phone battery life – is because when OLED screen is showing black, the OLED is basically doesn’t show anything at all – it doesn’t light up anything, it’s just turned off the diodes and become deep black. And since it doesn’t light up anything thus resulting in better battery life since nothing gets consumed.
