Btw my sub-$400 phone has sAMOLED 120Hz (non LTPO obv) with 360Hz touch sampling & 12/256GB, so I'm set for at least 4 years!

They made the best overall balanced phone with unmatched hardware and software integration.

If you need luxury then you can get your hands on caviar phones.

Those that buy new phones every 12-15 months, do it because they want to and not because they need to.

Zero.

I use 100% of the time power saving mode, which reduces to 30Hz.
Charging only 3x per week to me is more important than scrolling fast at speed I would not see everything on screen.

Every smartphone should have these:
120Hz (LTPO) screen
One excellent camera instead of four mediocre.
Processor powerfull enough to last for 5 years.
Nice battery performance with serviceability, so that the user can easily change it when the need arrives.

120 Hz looks nice, but why anyone would need it on a phone? To scroll Facebook smoother? Or the news? Or the menu?
Also, every review shows that 120 Hz decreased battery life for 10% or so compared to 60 Hz.
And before anyone says I need to experience it first to know, I love it on my PC, just don't know what I would need it for on a phone.

Can't wait for the dimensity 2000 decice

As you folks know by now... I am delighted red magic owner and user. Both for business, gaming, bitcoin, finance, and as a daily driver.

High refresh rates and high sampling rates are a must have for me. The higher the numbers. The better.

But I will never personally buy anything other than a gaming device. In general Droid gaming devices actually have the highest refresh and touch sampling on any device... Period.

There is absolutely zero excuse for the regular iPhone 13 models not to have a high refresh rate in 2021. You can get android phones for 200 bucks right now that have a 90hz screen.

I definitely feel difference between 60hz and 120hz. I'm currently on 60hz phone but i tested 120hz so my next phone has to have 120hz.
