Its unique DynamicSwitch function automatically switches the phone between 50, 60, 90 and 120Hz depending on the format of the content displayed on the screen, allowing the phone’s refresh rate to go up for use cases like gaming and down for lighter operations like reading – thereby optimizing power usage. The 240hz touch sampling rate further reinforces the phone’s extraordinary display capabilities, allowing it to beat most competition hollow.
