This test included two hours of messaging, two hours of scrolling through Twitter, two hours of watching YouTube recordings in portrait mode, and two hours of scrolling through Google Maps. These tests brought about the iPhone XS with 30 percent battery life still left in Dark mode contrasted with the normal mode. This is an immense contrast considering the phone still had just about 33% of its battery left.
It isn't surprising that Dark mode has such an effect on AMOLED and OLED displays as these panels switch pixels off totally for a black foundation resulting in battery saving.
