Samsung by no means enabled 120Hz mode at 1440p+ decision for the Galaxy S20 household, regardless of what some early rumors claimed. This yr it’s trying like the brand new LTPO panel on the Galaxy S21 Extremely will lastly enable 120Hz at the top resolution. The 2 vanilla S21 will get 1080p+ shows side-stepping the problem. All of that is simply rumors for now, in fact, the official announcement isn’t till subsequent week.
However whereas we wait we wished to ask which do you favor – decision or refresh fee? A 1080p+ excessive refresh fee (HRR) show and a excessive decision one? You may’t have each as a 4K 144 Hz show might sound superior on paper, however will homicide the battery very quickly.
It’s not simply the Galaxys both, the Sony flagships are in the identical boat, for instance. The Xperia 1 II boasts the one 4K OLED show within the cell market, however it has a 60Hz refresh fee. The Xperia 5 II is Sony’s first telephone with a HRR show, however it has 1080p+ decision.
For gaming telephones the reply appears to be clear – fast-paced video games profit from refresh fee way more than decision. For multimedia, the alternative is true. Which is choice is better-suited to your wants?
We’ve a sense we are able to guess the reply to this subsequent query, however we’ll ask anyway. Flat screens vs. curved screens, which is healthier?
A curved display makes the telephone narrower and is sweet for the swipe gestures of recent Android. It additionally appears so significantly better.
A flat display is simpler to protect with a case and protector. Makers are pushing curved panels as a premium function, normally reserved for the highest fashions (the upcoming S21 sequence might be an instance of that). However typically makers get caught up in fads regardless of protestations from followers.
