Text color become grey instead of pure black when create APK build


Currently, I am developing react native app using Expo CLI on Bare Workflow. When I try to change android:textColor in android/app/src/main/res/values/styles.xml the text color stays the same. I want to change this because when I build the project to APK, the text color becomes grey instead of pure black.

Thank you in advance for helping.


Out of curiosity, did you manage to fix this issue since then? I’m running exactly into this where building using expo run or eas build has the exact same issue, but weirdly not expo build.

Thanks in advance.

I’m also having this issue… any updates on this?

Could one of you post the code for a minimal example app that demonstrates the problem?
