Weekly poll: picking the perfect display (refresh rate, resolution, curved or flat)

10 January 2021
Which would you prefer - a 1080p+ display running at 120Hz or a 1440p+ one at 60Hz. Also, flat or curved?

I’d say 1440p high refresh rate screen with variable refresh rate tech like they have on pc, and you could choose the max refresh rate and the variable refresh rate would switch depending on content, reading a book very low fps, watching a video matches the refresh rate of the video, navigating the ui, high refresh rate, gaming high refresh rate, you get the idea

90Hz should be minimum and its missing from the poll. And thats JUST STUPID. 60hz feels laggy, 120hz is smooth but not worth the extra battery consumption.

90hz should be the baseline and anything above should go to something like gaming phones.

FullHD+ with 60hz-90hz-120hz-144hz that we can choose manually also 1B color with HDR10+ and of course flat screen

[deleted post]im not even a user, why would i be hurt

I'll give reasons for my votes:

1. 1080p for small displays is ok, because anything above makes text very small mostly. Also, remember that 1080p is 2 megapixels, while 2K is 5 megapixels, this also means more stress for GPU and battery in all use cases.

2. 60 hz is ok enough for my needs while I'm not online gaming. While online gaming, its different. In fact, if it saves battery, display should go down to 30 Hz as well.
I think 30Hz, 75Hz and 120 Hz should be the options for different use cases.

3. I prefer flat screens because when the novelty of curved screens wears off, you get a lot of false touches, and they ruin the experience. They ruin even games.
I still remember playing PUBG flawlessly in the older days on flat displays, right now its just touching one corner or another... Even phone protector touches it!!

Curved screens were something years ago, Samsung should stop doing it and then all other minorities will follow.

I don't understand why you are waiting for some trend??
High refresh rate smartphones are already the norm.

if we (as users) demand 90hz as the minimum specs for display, all of the companies would follow the trend
