The system-wide dark mode feature on Realme phones

Although all the Realme phones still run the ColorOS 6 based on Android 9.0 Pie, it offers the system-wide dark mode feature that is similar to Android 10. With this feature, you can not only use the dark theme on your phone’s system and dedicated apps, but also can enable the dark mode feature on third-party apps including some unsupported apps like WhatsApp.

So with the ColorOS 6, it becomes very easy for you to activate the system-wide dark mode, as you don’t need to enable the developer options on your phone and turn on the "override force-dark" setting to get the dark mode feature.   

In addition, as the new ColorOS 7 will be launched in November, we believe that the system-wide dark mode feature will be further optimized in it.
