Hey everyone, I really like the High contrast mode on the black 822 (both with light and dark backgrounds) however with the light background, is it safe to say that will drain more battery since, from what I remember, by having more white pixels on the screen more often it drains the battery vs when there is black it uses less because on black portions it doesn't even have to light up the pixels? Hope I just made sense.
(FYI High Contrast mode with Dark background is also very cool as its a lot of black with white outlines on tiles ... might save even more battery life!)
Also, I noticed in high contrast mode, it doesn't allow you to have a screen saver :( Anyone else experiencing this or find a way around it?
Out side of that, I LOVE this phone so far (And so does my dad). Got them today at Best Buy for Free. My mom is getting the White one at Costco for $49.99. One bog Happy 822 family :)
Thanks in advance for all info... truly appreciated!

AMOLED's use virtually no power when displaying blacks and have no backlighting, so a black background or a display with more blacks will draw less power. The worse thing you can do on the AMOLED is to go with the white background if you are concerned about power.

I'm trying the high contrast with light background on my 8x. Very cool and doesn't use any more juice since my screen is super LCD.
