So MRWHOSETHEBOSS iPhone Battery test needs retesting.....

Hopefully, they will fix it sooner than it gets to the hands of consumers.

iphone 120Hz is still immature.

They need time to fix it.

Ooff now apple fanboys cant say apple does everything better. Always late to the party and mess things up

FatShady, 25 Sep 2021like what apps? majority of mobile games are locked at 30-6... moreBut that's the point of having a HRR display: to have a smoother UX throughout the whole phone. Things like browsing and scrolling feels better with a higher framerate.

The problem here is that Apple is a bit late on implementing this feature, yet it's not 100% working as advertised on release.

TheLastOracle, 25 Sep 2021The majority of apps are probably run in single digits most... moreTrue

Anonymous, 25 Sep 2021Ben Sin from XDA was the only reviewer who spoke the truth,... moreI can definitely attest to that. I can definitely see a clear night-and-day difference between 60Hz and 120Hz during gaming and console emulation, but for the rest of the time when I scroll the browser and social media apps or reading e-books vertically? I really don't see any difference between the two. If anything, it sucks up more battery juice. That is why I only use 120Hz during gaming and leave the phone at 60Hz all the time. It really does help me saves a lot of battery life.

Ben Sin from XDA was the only reviewer who spoke the truth, that you couldn't really see much difference between 60hz and 120hz on the iPhone 13s. Everyone else were plain shills with compromised integrity and should no longer be trusted.

The majority of apps are probably run in single digits most of the time, many times at 60Hz, and rarely at 120Hz. That's why the 120Hz is as frugal with battery as the 60Hz was. Iye probably more frugal, for most of the time.

Only in Android, thats the main issue. 3rd party developers havent optimized it to fully utilized in iOS. In Android theres a lot.

But then again, very few apps have 120Hz or higher refresh rate support in the first place. I only see a lot with mobile gaming apps.
