On the morning of December 20th, the media Android Authority tested the 90Hz refresh rate screen phone and found that most people could n’no difference between the 90Hz refresh rate screen and the 60Hz refresh rate screen. The 90Hz refresh rate screen in the second half of 2019 was in front of people and was very popular among some user groups. In theory, the 90Hz refresh rate screen can generate 90 frames in a second, making your phone’s display animation more fluid. So is there really such a big gap in the actual experience?
Is the 90Hz refresh rate screen really that great?
In response to this problem, themedia made a test to see if the user can distinguish between the 60Hz refresh rate screen and the 90Hz refresh rate screen. The test method was simple and crude:media selected ten smartphone users to take part in the test, and sent them two Realme X2Pro phones and a set of one plus 7 series phones (one plus 7 and one plus 7 Pro), one of the two sets of phones was a 60Hz refresh rate screen and the other was a 90Hz refresh rate screen.
The tests are divided into two groups
Testers also explainwhy not using the Pixel 4 because the phone’s 90Hz setup options are not as stable as those. As for why one plus that set is two different models of mobile phones, themedia explained that because it can not provide two identical products, so the settings are almost similar.
To make the test as fair as possible, the testers installed the same wallpaper and app for the phones, with a brightness of 100%. Each participant tries Realme’s two products before using two plus products.
The phones tested have the same app installed
The results were a bit unexpected, but not surprising , with few people distinguishing the difference between a 60Hz refresh rate screen and a 90Hz refresh rate screen.
The tester said he predicted that most people would not see an increase in the animation smoothness and smoothness of the 90Hz refresh rate screen, but that several people should notice the difference between them. Because several of the ten people who took the test were technicians, but they, like everyone else, found no difference.
The tester then analyzed the test results and said that the 90Hz refresh rate was not a big jump, at least not a significant 120Hz increase. In addition, the size of the display, the distance between the screen and the user’s eyes, affects speed perception. In other words, the smartphone screen isn’t big enough, and we’re too close to using it every day.
Third, the testers believe that these users do not use the device for long periods of time in the test, if the device is used for more than 10 minutes, the user may get used to displaying speed, and then back to the 60Hz refresh rate screen will feel some discomfort.
In any case, the tester concluded that the 90Hz refresh rate achieved at the expense of battery life was less pronounced, that he did not feel worth it, and that raising the refresh rate to 120Hz would have a greater impact on the battery.
