Black being actually black (ie no light being emitted vs pixels hiding the display's backlight) feels great for terminal work, but I do not think that OLED is yet worth the overall battery life hit.

For instance, Anandtech [1] reports 6h11m for web browsing on the LCD X1 Yoga, which drops to 3h39m on the OLED variation.

Shouldn't this intuitively be the other way around? Especially is you utilize dark mode on your editor/terminal.

I believe the benchmark was related to web browsing.
