JoelRaj-1002, 21 Jun 2019What do you mean? Hz and fps... Do you understand them?Yes. Hz means Actions done per seconds. since we're talking about a screen. a refresh rate of 120 Hz would mean also 120 FPS (FRAMES per second. and since we're talking about things per second.) we're finding out that 120 FPS=120 Hz.

JoelRaj-1002, 21 Jun 2019What do you mean? Hz and fps... Do you understand them?Hz (Hertz) literally means cycles per second; it refers to the refresh rate of the screen. Most screens cycle at 60 Hz. If the Hz are higher, the video content will generally appear more smooth and buttery. But, if the FPS (Frames Per Second) are lower, there will be no advantage. Most videos, like MP4's, are filmed at 30 FPS. In this case, 30 Hz is perfectly sufficient. Using a higher refresh rate will not make any difference. That is why I leave the Hz setting on Auto; no need to drain the battery faster if the content will look no better.
When looking for new games, many higher end mobile game apps will advertise as FPS type games. This means they play at higher FPS (usually 60 FPS), and therefore the higher Hz can be used.

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019so, you suggest people buy a console gaming than a gaming phone?... moreYes. if you can afford a PC. Let's say if you are buying a PC with a GTX 1080 or RTX 207l0, or at least GTX 1070. That's kinda graphics you get with the PS4 and XBox! Also there are some Console games that can't be played in PC. But the graphics of a well built PC can't be matched with a PS4 for now! Let's see what the next gen of consoles bring us

You just can get a PS4 + Asus Zenfone 6 for almost the same price, right? Also, you need to compromise on Cam Spec if you are opting for a gaming phone. Again then comes the life of the phone and Android itself. Also, how much difference you'll get in Playing the PUBG in ROG phone 2 with the Zenfone 6? Only drawback the Zenfone 6 has is the display and I kinda understand now why!

vishusmruti, 19 Jun 2019There is no point in buying gaming phones as there are no games ... moreso, you suggest people buy a console gaming than a gaming phone? Then, can your ps4 or psp make a call? text messaging? whatsapp? facebook? playing PUBG mobile? or playing android games on a bus and can you carry it like a phone?
And instead of buying ps4 I prefer buying pc for gaming

A fast panel doesn't just make gaming much nicer, it also makes a complete difference in everyday life. Yeah, if it add too much costs, then it's not all positive.

Cool. Fast panels are always welcome. Time to get rid of the 60 Hz disaster everywhere. Nobody should have to settle for 60 Hz, not even on a phone.
