Default [Q] HTC One M8 Home screen clock widget color

Hi, So I've been using my One M8 for almost a week now. It's truly awesome. One thing I've noticed however is the difference in the color of my home screen clock widget. It appears to change automatically as seen in the screenshots taken a few hours apart. Is there a way to keep it on the black background with white text? Or is that a feature on the Sense 6? Changing themes doesn't seem to make any difference either. Any thoughts?

At night is black, and during daytime is white, i think you can't change that without rooting

Clock changes color depending on the time : white = day, black = night.

If you want to keep only one color you will have to flash some mod

thanks guys for the response. I figured as much. i'm guessing that the phone considers night as when it's still dark outside and day as when there's still light from the sun?

Not sure, but I believe it's set on the time of sunset/sunrise from your identified location

Copy that. I guess the best way to find out is to observe it. Thanks again.

If there's a way to put a widget on the lock screen than you don't have to root your phone, you just have to configure widget so it's always black/white, depends on what do you want.

Ok, so the home screen clock widget just changed from the white background to the black background this happened 6pm my local time. So it looks like the colors change at 6pm/6am.
