The dark theme on the Android version is been there for a long time, however, the dark theme is kinda "incomplete", which is happening on both production & beta version, you can still see a certain part of the UI keep showing light/white, like showing white background during the app startup. I switched back to Chrome just because of this UX problem. What do you guys think about this?

 

Here are some screenshots that I found annoying while using the dark theme:

Hi,
judging from those screenshots, I think the "Twitter" title needs to be white because it's currently blended in and barely readable.
btw do you see the new Icon for Edge beta on Android yet?
Yeah, I did receive the new icon, at last.
