In recent years, smartphone screens tend to have higher refresh rates. Starting from as low as 90Hz, some gaming phones push the limit above 144Hz. But how many of our readers use such devices? At the same time, how many mobile phones are still running at 60Hz?
Well, we asked this question in a recent poll. This is the result!
What is the maximum refresh rate of your current mobile phone?
This is another popular opinion poll that has received more than 5,000 votes since it went live on September 3. There is also no shortage of users of smartphones with 60Hz displays.
According to the results of public opinion surveys, 38.4% of respondents use mobile phones with a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz. This occupies a considerable share of the vote, but it does mean that most readers are using phones with faster screens. The most popular option is 120Hz, which received 39.5% of the votes, while 5.2% of readers’ phones are equipped with 144Hz or faster screens. Overall, 61.6% of readers use smartphones with a maximum refresh rate of 90Hz or faster.
You can also take a look: Refresh rate explanation-what does 60Hz, 90Hz or 120Hz mean?
Although many readers are equipped with fast screens, there are still some people who choose to use them at 60Hz. According to reviews, battery life and heat generation are the core reasons. In other words, those with a 144Hz display, such as Xiaomi Mi 10T, like to run their display to the maximum. Please keep reading for more reader comments.
- David Josephson: I always keep my Mi 10T Pro at 144hz, honestly I didn’t notice the battery usage! The 144hz screen refresh rate is amazing and smooth. Even if you play games on games that support high frame rates, there is a big difference in obtaining PC quality refresh rates!
- Secco: I like the smoothness of 90hz on OnePlus 7 Pro. If I buy a new phone, I won’t get any lower prices.
- Joe Black: Both of my mobile phones are 90Hz, which will soon become 120/144. I don’t care about it.
It’s just a mobile phone, I don’t care, I’m not playing games or doing any serious things, but notifications, occasional browsing, photography, etc.
- Sandip: Well, my S20+ has 120 Hz, but due to heating and a lot of battery consumption, I leave it at 60.
- The last camp: 60Hz. I kept my phone because I didn’t see much motivation to upgrade. I don’t like the direction that many companies charge more with less prices, so it limits my options. More options are always welcome, I will use a higher refresh rate when possible, but it does affect battery life and is not an important factor in the phone.
- Second glance: When it comes to daily battery life, I am stingy. As an advanced user and gamer, I want all the SOT that I can get after a full charge. When more mobile games support higher refresh rates, I might consider changing my preferences. Until then, 60Hz will be my default value.
- DBS Bank: 60Hz, I have no intention to surpass it. I have used a phone with a higher refresh rate, but I can’t see the difference. Therefore, the lack of a high refresh rate on the phone is not a problem at all for me. Unlike the lack of expandable storage and a headphone jack.
- Gianluca Di Maggio: I have ZenFone 8, so 120 Hz. But I would say that 90 Hz on the phone should be the manufacturer’s goal, there is not much visual difference, but the battery life is longer. If this phone does not struggle with low-brightness colors so badly in 90 Hz mode, I would use it instead.
