Weekly poll results: The ideal display is a flat 120Hz panel of 1080p resolution

17 January 2021
On the flip side, high resolution curved displays are an unpopular option, especially if the refresh rate is just 60Hz.

uknowme, 27 Jan 2021Fast charging destroy battery.... the higher W the more fas... moreBattery's degrade over time regardless of if they're used or not.
The reason why fast-charging degrades batteries is because it increases friction, this increases heat, and this is what increases the degradation rate. Lithium ion batteries are very similar, broadly speaking, but they can be designed with different properties in mind. This difference in chemistry can mean the difference between very cheap mass production, high capacity, lower weight, fast discharge rate, less environment damage etc etc.

The average Liion Cells we use in 2020, is better than the average Liion Cells we used back in 2010.... but there hasn't been any major huge improvements. Its just been small incremental improvements over a long stretch of time. As this goes on, we're going to find it harder and harder to make much improvements, and we are going to have to evolve to a new form instead. This famously happened with computing when we hit a "wall" with individual integrated circuits and shifted into planar transistors, which allowed Moore's Law to continue since the late 80's.

ypcx, 28 Jan 2021Yeah, fast charging destroys battery which doesn't use... morei mean like me keep 15w fast charging... can preserve battery life as well not so damaging to battery life... 15w fast charging still not too slow ... for me... full charge within 1 hour... give some tips to you please thank me hahaaha.... during fast charging put it in aeroplane mode... u notice it charge damn faster.... i DONT mind to share it to all

Like... Samsung.
Sorry, but your argument is invalid.

I prefer 160hz refresh rate with 1080p display

Samsung needs to get serious about the charging speed. And remove bloat like Bixby. I'm on P30 Pro and S21 Ultra barely entices me. Looking ahead to Mi 11 Pro. Xiaomi knows how to do charging.

Anonymous, 20 Jan 2021Most qhd screens can be lowered to 1080pbut they are still QHD, they have to keep the same number of pixels on, it just upscaled to 1080p

I think 90hz strikes a great balance of smoothness and battery life. For me that's the way to go.

PvZ1 Rocks, 19 Jan 2021Using the ROG Phone 2 and after using it with 1080p 120 Hz ... moreMost qhd screens can be lowered to 1080p

Using the ROG Phone 2 and after using it with 1080p 120 Hz OLED, anything else feels sloppy, even iPhones. 120 Hz does make a difference

The distance between 1080p and 1440p is so negligible. You will only find the difference if you actively look for it the whole time which is stupid. 1080p is fine unless you stick your phone screen an inch in front of your face

Andreidinutu, 17 Jan 2021Have you ever even tried using a curved display? I think yo... moreYes, I have a Note 10 for more than a year now, I use the s-pen a lot to take notes, the curved display is very annoying, reduces the usable area of the screen, also when watching videos in landscape orientation, light reflection on the edges gets very distracting, I wish it had a flat screen.

Wells, 18 Jan 2021Got a source in that? Because from all tests I've seen... moreMi 10T Pro user here.
I get 8hr SOT despite keeping the screen at 144hz.
Meanwhile iPhone 12 at 200$ extra gives weak 60hz screen with 4hr SOT.

Anonymous, 18 Jan 2021120hz really doesn't effect battery life all that much... moreyou are really... do you know there is one thing in this world call google? just google you will notice it says battery reduction between 30% to 50% for 90hz and 120hz.... for all 90 hz is really meaningless no different from 60hz at least get a phone with 120hz and 144hz for sometime fruitfull hahaa

ME, 19 Jan 2021Have the Sony Xperia 5II , Use most of the time the 60Hz... morei also like xperia 5 ii but xperia 1ii or xperia 1iii with 4k screen is better than me. but one thing i dont like is sony dont follow the world trend. now all using small notch or punch hole but still with bezel at top n bottom. the one i hate most sony also not follow what customer like like why no on screen fingerprint sensor still with side button sensor that the most i dont like .álso i heard now sony camera is better ? is it true?

Anonymous, 18 Jan 2021120hz really doesn't effect battery life all that much... moreYou the one that quit talking the thing that you the only one in the world don't know. The whole world is talking that 120hz kill battery but you still sleeping hahahaha. 1 sec need to output 120 hz frame compare to 60 frame of course will take more battery. less say if watching video 120hz video is 2 time the mobile data needed for normal 60 hz video. haha wake up. that why all mobile manufacturer now using adaptive screen can change 48 to 120 hz because most of the time you will be at 60 or even lower.

Have the Sony Xperia 5II ,
Use most of the time the 60Hz mode ..
The phone is so fast that I can't see the difference.
