    So if this phone that we have has an AMOLED display (not the the new SLCD displays); would having a completely black background increase the battery life? Don't AMOLED displays not provide power to the pixel if that pixel is black? Just a thought I was having.

    Yes. The darker the background, the better for battery life.

    Yep. Black background is the poor man's extended battery.

    A white backround can use several tomes the battery of a basic lcd, while a black one uses a fraction of the power
