Does anyone of you know how much battery can be saved if i turn off x reality? And where is x reality active? only in the album app by sony or also during ui of android or browser?

i made some tests and you can see that after a picture has been rendered in the album app then the picture gets more colorful and sharper like a blend effect/fadein would been applied to it.

Not really sure how much processing power thus energy this consumes. However, I could see sharpening to happen even with X-reality / Vivid mode turned off. Think the phone just pre-loads the picture partly in order to speed things up and only when fully loaded it displays the full/sharp picture. Changing the colors on top might not consume much.
