Light mode or dark mode
For someone who suffers from cloudy vision light mode it beneficial to use light mode or positive polarity. Also people with normal vision, light mode results in better performance most of the time. With positive contrast polarity, there is more overall light and so the pupil contracts more. As a result, there are fewer spherical aberrations, greater depth of field, and overall better ability to focus on details without tiring the eyes.
However, applications meant for long-form reading (such as book readers, magazines, and even news sites) should offer a dark-mode feature because bright light can cause strain on eyes if it’s used for a long time.
The conclusion part is using bright warmer lights in the day and cooler lights in the evening can be beneficial to smartphone users.
