Google So, somewhere in the middle of the night (at least for me) Samsung and Google held a joint event, in which they announced both the new Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus, and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. While the Galaxy Nexus is a pretty impressive phone, what we got to see from Ice Cream Sandwich surely didn't drop too many jaws.

Has horrible visual default colours. So dark and cold compared to the email and calendar programmes which are so alive and comfy.

The phone on the other hand is hot.

I actually use dark themes on my phone. It saves the battery quite a bit, and if I need to look at my screen in the dark for a quick moment I don't accidentally blind myself.

However this is all my own personal taste and opinion. To each his own.

Interesting. I wonder if that's part of the reason for the dark theme. That giant display must suck a lot of power.
