[Poll Results!] Are you using Night mode on Android Pie on your Galaxy S9 or Note 9?

Android Pie for the Galaxy devices brings many new features, along with a major upgrade for the user interface. One UI is beautiful, and while some aspects may not appeal to everyone (like the default app icons), One UI manages to be fresh yet familiar at the same time. Perhaps the best part is the new inbuilt Night mode, which makes the entire UI darker to make it easy on your eyes in the dark, also removing the need to download dark third-party themes from the Samsung Themes store.

It’s not like One UI doesn’t look great in the default light theme. But Night mode makes it even better, especially on those AMOLED displays found on Samsung flagships. That said, not everyone is fond of dark themes on their phones, and we were wondering just how many of our readers are using Night mode on their Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, or Galaxy Note 9. Let us know by voting in the poll below, then taking to the comments section to further discuss your opinion of Night mode.

Don’t have Pie? Check out how Night mode looks on Android Pie in these screenshots and don’t forget that you can also use SamMobile with a dark theme! Galaxy S9 owners may want to keep an eye out on this article to see if their country has started receiving the final update.

Results: A whopping 51 percent of voters say they use Night mode all the time, which is the camp most of us here at SamMobile also fall in. Merely 7 percent say they prefer the regular light theme, while 11 percent say they keep switching between regular and Night mode. And 32 percent voters are looking forward to Pie exactly because of Night mode, so this is clearly one feature that almost everyone loves about Samsung’s version of Android Pie.

I don’t have the beta on my Note 9 but I have a dark theme that works exactly as night mode as far as I have seen.
Am I missing something? Because I don’t really understand the hype around night mode.

It is actually different than theming, dark notifications for example, all system UI is dark along with Samsung software as well like Samsung Email and Internet browser etc. This is all done with quick setting toggle. Not bad and more comprehensive than other implementations. As a matter of fact only Samsung as far as I know has the dark notifications.

Samsung email gets also dark with the dark theme. What about chrome? Does it also get dark themed? I use it more than Samsung’s web browser. Also, what about Flipboard? I read it everyday.

Dark mode is the best thing ever. Once you try it you do not go back! Slick feature!

My wife has night mode permanently enabled and loves it. She also has dark themed wallpapers and dark background gold icons from the theme store. It looks absolutely fantastic.

I’m sticking to night because I prefer a darker pallette than glaring white 24/7 but also because no themes have been updated to support OneUI. The theme I used before the beta is just messed up on OneUI. So I’m sticking with dark for now.

My wife changed the wallpaper to a dark theme and dark background gold icons, it looks great. The icon pack is EiD-XMAS Gift if you want to try it. Looks great!
