    Dark Mode Consumes 63% Less Battery, Google

    Smartphone components are evolving at a rapid pace but, the lithium-ion batteries that power them are not able to keep up with the latest hardware specifications. Hence, in an effort to prolong battery life, companies are trying to make software and hardware more power efficient. Recently, at the Android Dev Summit, Google revealed some key findings that can boost battery life on smartphones. Display and screen brightness are the biggest battery drainers on any smartphone. Google’s findings reveal using darker colours and the dark mode can extend battery upto 63%.

    Google’s Findings

    The most interesting piece of information from the summit was, more brightness draws more power in an almost linear manner. Next, the developers shared their studies performed using the Google Pixel 1 smartphone. The study points out the power consumption on max brightness between normal mode and ‘dark Mode’ on the AMOLED screen on the Pixel 1. The study reveals that the Pixel 1 consumed 250 mA of battery on max brightness in Normal mode whereas max brightness on dark mode consumed only 92 mA . The power consumption on dark Mode is 63% less than the Normal Mode. While, Google also conducted a similar test on the iPhone 7 with LCD display and it showed no difference in power consumtion between two different modes.

    Google also studied the impact that different screen colours have on power consumption. They found different colours draw different amounts of power from the source. For instance, Red consumes 600 miliWatts of power and Green consumes 580 miliWatts of power. While, Blue draws the highest power at 800 miliWatts out of the RGB colour gamut. The most important finding is that Black consumes the least power out of all the 65k colours that a display can produce. On the other hand, White draws max power out of the battery.

    Google Admits Their Mistake

    Google has admitted that they made a mistake in the past with their material design scheme. The company heavily encouraged developers to use white as their primary color for all applications and interfaces which apparently takes a jab at battery backup.

    Fortunately, Google explained how ‘Dark Mode’ can prolong the battery backup on a smartphone. Additionally, the latest YouTube with dark mode is an example that Google is learning from its mistakes and continue to bring this support to other apps as well. The company also demonstrated the comparison results that YouTube with dark mode has over normal mode. The YouTube video was paused on both the smartphones to pin point effects dark mode has on power drain. At 50% brightness, dark mode consumed 80 mA of power while normal mode consumes 93 mA of power from the battery. The biggest highlight in this study was the amount of power drawn on 100% screen brightness. YouTube in Dark Mode consumed 96 mA of max brightness which is higher than 50% at Normal Mode. But, Normal Mode on 100% brightness drew significantly higher power at 239 mA.

    To conclude, the study reveals that darker colours and options like Dark Mode can drastically reduce power consumption on phones with AMOLED displays.

    Blocking and unblocking contacts
    Blocking contacts
    You can stop receiving messages, calls and status updates from certain contacts by blocking them.

    To block a contact:
    1. In WhatsApp, tap Menu > Settings > Account > Privacy > Blocked contacts.
    2. Tap Add [​IMG].
    3. Search for or select the contact you want to block.
    Here are a couple alternative options for blocking a contact:

    • Open a chat with the contact, then tap Menu > More > Block > BLOCK.
    • Open a chat with the contact, then tap the name of the contact > Block > BLOCK.
    To block an unknown phone number:
    1. In WhatsApp, open the chat with the unknown phone number.
    2. Tap BLOCK.
    3. Tap BLOCK again.
      • If the message from the unknown phone number is spam, you have the option to tap REPORT AND BLOCK instead, which will report and block the number.
    Note:
    • Messages, calls and status updates sent by a blocked contact won't show up on your phone and will never be delivered to you.
    • Your Last seen, online, status updates and any changes made to your profile photo will no longer be visible to contacts you've blocked.
    • Blocking a contact won't remove them from your contacts list, nor will it remove you from the list on the contact's phone. To delete a contact, you must delete the contact from your phone's address book.
    • If you're concerned whether a blocked contact will know you're blocking them, please read this article.
    Unblocking contacts
    To unblock a contact:
    1. In WhatsApp, tap Menu > Settings > Account > Privacy > Blocked contacts.
    2. Tap the contact you want to unblock.
    3. Tap Unblock {contact}. You and the contact will now be able to send and receive messages, calls and status updates.
    Alternatively, you can search for the contact you blocked > tap and hold the contact > tap Unblock {contact}.

    Note:
    • If you unblock a contact, you won't receive any messages, calls or status updates the contact sent you during the time they were blocked.
    • If you unblock a contact or phone number that wasn't previously saved in your phone’s address book, you won't be able to restore that contact or phone number to your device.

    If above given method does not wok,

    Copy contact details on notepad or send it to other whatsapp number.
    Delete it from your phone.
    restart phone.
    After sometime, add this number again or add it on next day.
    Hope this will work for you.
    I never blocked any number on my whatsapp.
    Hence No Experience.

    Unblock it,
    only then you can't see that number.
    But that number can contact you.

    No other way to block any number permanently and delete it.
