Why make my screen black
Making your screen all black saves energy. This is especially true on OLED screens, where black pixels actually turn off.
As a prank
You can use this as a prank to pretend like the device is dead.
Check for dead pixels
A completely black screen makes it easier to spot dead pixels.
When you're in a dark room and you want to temporarily switch off the display light, this can be easier than putting your device into standby mode.
You can use this to meditate. Feel free to play your favorite meditation song while you're at it.
Better than standby mode
You get most of the benefits of being in standby mode, with your apps still running in the background.
Check if screen is OLED
You can use this to check if your screen is an OLED one, as OLED screens don't emit light when set to black.
Use screen as mirror
Need to see who's behind you? A black screen can help you see reflections. Works better on glossy displays.
See the dust
Need to clean your screen, but don't want to turn it off? This will help you see all those dust particles.
Because it's cool
Impress your friends - or just use it to stay stylish. Black will never go out of fashion.
