AMOLED-friendly themes for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge should be available soon

AMOLED-friendly themes for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge should be available soon
Last month, when Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, it also revealed that both handsets would have a number of pre-installed themes, thus allowing users to change the look of TouchWiz UI (including fonts, apps, or the dialer and messaging apps).

Besides having access to the themes that come pre-installed, Galaxy S6 and S6 edge owners will also be able to download additional ones from the Samsung Themes Store. SamMobile discovered that there will be some "AMOLED friendly" dark themes available, which should save power whenever the 5.1-inch Quad HD displays of the S6 and S6 edge are turned on. Of course, if you don't like dark themes, there will be plenty of others to choose from (including "themes with adorable characters", and "themes to boost your mood"). All these extra themes should be launched starting this month.

As previously reported, user-made themes will also be available at some point.

Both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are available to pre-order since last month, and some lucky users already received their orders, thanks to the fact that T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint have started shipping the two new flagship smartphones.

Yeah buy the world's best display phone and put dark theme in it, where basically there is nothing to see. Way to go. Bravo muppets.

You can make dark attractive themes. Unfortunately the one picture here is indeed butt-ugly. Besides some of us prefer having the best powersaving capable display ACTUALLY saving power!!!

Or you can just go into microsoft paint and make a black image which will save pretty much the exact same amount of battery.
