  • I use dark mode on youtube light mode on reddit/switches to dark mode after midnight. And on my Samsung I have a setting which switches to dark mode after around 10 PM. It's pretty nice because I think reddit looks better in light mode but I don't want so much light in my eyes at 12 AM

  • Wow Nice omg ❤️💥🔥

  • Why did this even have to be made into a video? It isn't a secret that if the pixels that aren't in use are turned off and therefore doesn't use any power. You. Get. Longer. Battery. Life. Is all the hours you used on this video actually worth it?
