Movies run at 24-25fps. 90Hz display for movies is nonsense... The best use is for gaming but pixel response times are more important than refresh rate alone.
I don't understand the hype behind this. High refresh rates aren't something I'm looking forward to this year. Sounds like hype meant to replace the lack of genuine innovation and improvements.
Besides, I don't currently plan on getting a new phone either this year. They're getting way too crippled, removing basic and working features for half-baked alternatives that aren't half as good as what they're meant to replace.
I love tech and I love phones but I'm starting to become annoyed by those who make them.

it is just another consoomer meme
depends on what you need your smartphone for. if you watch lots of movies, or play games, video conferences or similar, ok, 90-120hz could be of use. if you are in photography or simply you need a phone and a net browser... just a waste of money.
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2020Yea but it's your (The customers) fault really. 80% Didn't want the jack removed, yet that did... moreback up your claim that phone companies sold more phones because they removed the 3.5mm jack
GAMIRSFM, 02 Feb 2020So you are the one who says "5G is unnecessary" or "256GB of Storage is unnecessary"
Then don... moreWow. You don't know a thing about this person and you went all over it.
Being a blind technology fanboy means you'll buy useless tech destined to be doomed like 3DTVs and VR. Being critical of technology and seeking necessity before novelty means you won't burn your money on stuff that will ultimately bring little to no benefit.
You do know that when marketing and greed gets thrown into the mix, technology can and WILL move in the wrong direction, right?
Yes, I want 120Hz, so they are forced to increase the batteries size and then I can disable the useless 120Hz option and get huge battery life.
90Hz would be a nice middle ground, however I would be interested in the Galaxy S20, but with a smaller battery than my current 60Hz Huawei Mate 20 Pro and knowing that in battery tests Huawei usually comes out on top I can't say I enthusiastic enough about 120Hz displays.

Oneplus sold more when they removed it. Samsung sold more Note phones when they removed. That's exactly why companies are acting the way they do.
In fact, the more crippled and overpriced their phones are, the more they sell. Apple too are setting records again.
Truly insane world.
Anders, 02 Feb 2020Didn't vote in the poll because there wasn't an option for "I couldn't give a shit"Then you're the problem. "I couldn't give a sh$t" is not a good option. These polls encourage development and evolution, not stagnation and devolution like you showed.
What I want is stability, so the framerate never drops below 60 fps.
120 Hz is a thing, that when you don't need will drain more battery (yeah I know it's now that much, but still) and when your hardware won't handle the load you won't get any benefits.
Do you need that super smooth scrolling or window animations? I certainly don't.

Premium 120hz display phones for 500 plus dollars.
Low end 120hz display phones for 285 dollars.
What I wanted is a better battery capacity that could last for days or so while playing intensive graphic quality games! ROG phone 2 maybe the solution. But those are produced in LIMITED QUANTITIES.
high refresh rate screens will be common in 2020 phones, but do you want one?
>>> Already have one and will never go back to 60hz again.
Didn't vote in the poll because there wasn't an option for "I couldn't give a shit"
For gimmicky throw every new feature in devices (folding, flagships, gaming), it'd make sense
For most consumers the battery life impact vs. higher refresh rate smoothness isn't a trade-off they'd like
I pity the people who don't have any bigger / better screen to consume 60hz> content, 60hz on a 5-7" screen?
For most people, it is just a number or it'd have been standard on all laptops (only gaming laptops come with higher refresh rates). On the move, it ain't gonna be noticeable, when stationery, rather have a bigger better screen.
They can introduce it, but its very unlikely I'll use it. I'm contend with 60hz and it also conserves battery life. I'll rather do HFR gaming on my PC with a 240hz monitor.
sohail shafayat, 02 Feb 2020NO, I need longer battery lifeYou don't have even basic understanding.. There might be a option to set lower refresh rates..
I have 2x 165hz screens on my desk and I love the overall smoothnes
However my PC doesn't use batteries like a phone does (duh) and on a phone I prefer good battery life above high refreshrate screens, 60hz would be enough for me and it would be a waste to make 60+ hz screens common on phones (and make the phone prices higher) so that people like me lock it to 60hz for better battery life.
So no thx, 60hz on phones is fine.
I absolutely want a high refresh rate screen. 60 Hz just doesn't cut it, nothing beats the smoothness of a fast panel.
