Saturation and Colour Temperature

Hi, I was just really curious as to see if anyone knew how much saturation and colour temperature effects battery life, if at all. I'm not trying to save battery power per say, but I was just curious to see if there is an impact or not. Thanks!

    For the Axon 7, and any device with an AMOLED display, a different color profile will not have any impact on battery life directly, but it can have an indirect impact if it causes the overall display output to be brighter than it otherwise would be in terms of cd/m². On the other hand, any profile change that causes the overall output to be lower, will increase battery life.

    On a LCD display where all color profiles just apply offsets to how they let the backlight shine through, they will have no impact at all unless you apply a profile that makes things so dark that you need the backlight brightness turned higher than you otherwise need.

    Thanks for the info! That was very informative

    Wanted to also add.

    By default, the Axon 7 does not constrain the color gamut of the display at all, thus you get a vary large gamut (the gamut coverage would further improve with better calibration, but the panel is physically capable of pretty much all of the current color standards. Beyond that, since it is not restricted, if you specify a color outside of the sRGB range, it will display it.

    Out of the box, it uses a white balance of around 7700k on normal, and 6700K when set to warm, this is because during the first hundred hours or so of use, AMOLED panels will get small drop in color temperature, thus with a slightly higher initial white balance, the long term stability of the panel will fall within the D65 (6500k) range.

    @razor512 Thank you for the explanation. You are always a wealth of technical information.
