Has the color palette prioritized colors that used less energy on OLED screens?


OLED screens that light up each pixel individually are becoming increasingly popular. They present an opportunity for digital designers to save energy. As you might expect, darker colors require less energy to illuminate, with black being the lowest energy color and white being the most energy intensive. What you might not expect is that blue pixels use approximately 25% more energy than red and green pixels. Consider your color palette and try to prioritize low energy colors, while always keeping accessibility in mind.

Does your design support dark mode? Does it allow users to switch to it if they haven’t set their browser preferences properly?
