divis200, 10 Mar 2016It's not google that decides about changing resolutions, it's the device maker. To make device... moreits the mindset of NOT accepting phones as JUST phones is what made them SMART today and that same mindset will continue to push the boundaries for the future, sony already made this possible in xperia you can change resolution
if android can make for gimmicky features such as force touch, VR content is also pretty limited and yet the get attention i dont see why a resolution changing/or even color changing cant get some spotlight
how interesting of you to shut down the benefits of resolution change, "of course its not going to happen" there is no disadvantage of this feature, if you sir/madam dont want to "waste" resolution guess what you could do?? just not change your resolution :O and those who want to could just change it... OPTIONAL
wooopwoop855, 10 Mar 2016copying ios hahaha tell me another 1And iOS copying Samsung....its a cycle
AnonD-491921, 10 Mar 2016Wow the splitscreen is nice addition.Ive always wanted it in Nexus devices.But I am gonna go w... moreAgree with you on Mi5. But I actually don't prefer QHD screen (except if it is on samsung's super amoled display) because they drain a lot of battery. Full HD screen with 400+ ppi are good enough.
AnonD-19153, 10 Mar 2016GOOGLE! we want to be able to change the resolution of our smartphones please make that happenIt's not google that decides about changing resolutions, it's the device maker. To make device run on lower resolution, everything from pictures to icons needs to be remade what can't be currently done on android with 1 press. But about changing screen resolution, what do you expect from it? Better battery life? Of course it's not going to happen. Better gameplay experience? There aren't many apps (in your case i can guarantee games, because there is nothing that can run worse on android except them) if any, that won't run at least 30fps on android. You also said "we", which is not accurate. I wouldn't want to waste screen resolution if my phone runs everything 60fps. It would be just a waste. When will people understand that phone is a phone and while you can do some productive stuff, it's not suitable device for games and it most likely won't be for at least the next few years. If you have other reasons for changing resolution, tell me, because i don't see any.
Wow the splitscreen is nice addition.Ive always wanted it in Nexus devices.But I am gonna go with mi5 because Nexus 6p still cost 35000 rs for 32 gb version AND mi5 will launch the pro version at 30000 rs max.Although Nexus has a QHD amoled display and front facing speakers IT cannot justify 47000 rs price tag for 128 gb version.It has a qualcomm snapdragon and only 3gb ram.Even galaxy S7 would cost 50000 -55000rs.I think huawei should lower the price substantially(Like atleast the same price as Xiaomi mi5 and should sell the 128 GB version lower than 30000 rs.Then i would totally go for Nexus 6p.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2016They said Lolipop was gonna be battery saver. It killed my Samsung S4. I dont trust Google and... morelollipop was very battery hungry. Marshmallow has battery life just like kitkat does. And dunno how it will be with android N.
"Samsung has been doing it since the days dinosaurs walked the Earth" ... hahaha.
So they are basically 'copying' some of the best bits of windows and ios.. nothing new or innovative in there.
we want to be able to change the resolution of our smartphones please make that happen
Can't wait to receive it on my moto-x pure edition! Bit I guess I'll have to wait till November.
Windows does it. iOS does it. Samsung has been doing it since the days dinosaurs walked the Earth.
Seriously? thats too hyperbolic. LOL

Or is it not for S4 cos battery life is amazing with that. It came in for my Note 3 so i thought it would be for S4 as well.
All those improvements will be removed by manufacturer's uglification (custom UI).
This comment: "Samsung has been doing it since the days dinosaurs walked the Earth" = LOL
They said Lolipop was gonna be battery saver. It killed my Samsung S4. I dont trust Google and its updates anymore.
