Screen Background: Black Is Beautiful. So Is White. Michael Agrees

Yesterday’s BlackBerry Z30 software update added the option of a black theme to a number of built-in apps. Turning on that option reminded me of how beautiful and cool black really is on a phone. As a matter of fact, I created a fully black background image and set that as my wallpaper. Have a look:

Really nice. But hang on. Was it not just yesterday afternoon that I was having an orgasm over how sweet Windows Phone looks with a white background? Have a look:

Sigh. I guess white is just as beautiful too. It all really depends on the layouts you are looking at, and of course the eternal factor of personal preference. No?

Black Or White

Here’s something on the subject from King of Pop, Michael Jackson:

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby,
It don’t matter if you’re black or white.

I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my baby,
It don’t matter if you’re black or white.

I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my brother,
It don’t matter if you’re black or white.

Ooh, ooh
Yea, yea, yea now.
Ooh, ooh
Yea, yea, yea now.

It’s black, it’s white.
It’s tough for them to get by.
It’s black, it’s white, whoo

What do you prefer for your phone’s background? White, black, or even something else?

      Well, what I do is put the SIM in another phone when I need to activate/renew/check balance. Tedious….

    That your phone or line get serious issues. All operations work well on my Z10.

      Chuks, it is an old SIM cut down to micro-SIM. Perhaps I should try to have it replaced with a proper micro-SIM. That might just be the solution.
