ProJames, 12 Feb 2017You do realize that Super AMOLED Plus is a thing, right? And it uses an RGB matrix. Super AMOLED Plus is history and obvious no longer in production due to it short life span.
1080p. I have an 1440p and it literally puts my GPU through a world of hurt. For phones.
Loaded question. You can't ask without the context of size.
< 6", 720p
Very Intelligent Community right here... FHD is the best for battery life , gaming and enough sharpness !

ProJames, 12 Feb 2017You do realize that Super AMOLED Plus is a thing, right? And it uses an RGB matrix. It was used only on Galaxy S2, but because OLED displays on RGB matrix degrade much faster than on a Diamond Pantile matrix, Super AMOLED Plus is not used anymore.
1080p is the best option, because it's sharp enough and uses less battery than bigger resolutions. 1440p and 2160p have an advantage only in VR, which I think it's not very useful in a phone(on the other hand, PC and console VR is more interesting because of the much better performance and quality, a phone can do as much as a phone can do). 720p should be left to the past, it's simply too grainy.

If you have a QHD display, changing it to 720p display won't help increase your phone's battery life and performance. It just make you think as if your phone is of lesser resolution. This is because no amount of software tweaking can change a phone's hardware.

But bc of the battery, it should be max 720p. 2600-3000mah for 720p. 3100-4000mah for 1080p. 4000+ for 2k and 5000+ for 4k with the s7 hardware and more powerful.

Anonymous, 12 Feb 2017QHD. After using it on several phones, going back to FHD feels pixelated.I agree 100%. All these people that said QHD isn't that much different to FHD doesn't know what they're talking about.
Sure, if you compare QHD and FHD side by side, you won't see any differene. But, if you had used QHD display regularly, you WILL notice the difference if you switch to a 1080p display.
Battery life doesn't suffer much on QHD display and maybe QHD display phone suffer a little bit performance issue, but we only talking about seconds here. So why not QHD right?
I voted QHD, but if I'm an active user of VR, I would have chosen 4K.
