    Okay, i read an article the other day that said displaying white on the screen takes up more juice than black. Is there any truth to this? I thought it was just AMOLED screens that this was true for. Being a TFT LCD, is it the same for the droid? I'm always lookin to squeeze out every ounce of juice. Any input?

    I have heard the opposite. Something about black requiring more backlighting that white but I really have no clue.
