Galaxy S8 and S8+ display resolutions are already set to FHD+

You must have heard that the Galaxy S8 duo sports a magnificent display comprising of AMOLED Dual-edge curved screen panels. You must have also known about the QHD+ display of Samsung’s flagship models that are powered at 2960x1440-pixel resolution, producing an aspect ratio of 18.5:9, an unusually great visual ratio for users.

A very recent report claims that HD+ (also known as FHD+) is enabled by default in Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones. FHD+ display powers the screen to produce 2220x1080-pixel resolution which is lesser than the one promised by QHD+ display. The users have the option to change that setting and enable QHD+ display, although we won’t suggest you do that.

No, your phone is not going to explode if you do that. It’s just that the QHD+ display is a very heavy display resolution and it generates a lot of load on the processor. The more load on your processor, the more battery it will drain. So, we would suggest that you enable QHD+ display only when you want to watch a movie or something, because apart from that, you won’t even be able to recognize the difference except while using Gear VR.

But don’t worry, QHD+ will automatically be enabled when you use the Gear VR. The same feature has been introduced in the Android 7.0 update in Galaxy S7 duo by Samsung. Also, the user is given a choice to switch back to the more powerful seamless display at the cost of battery drainage, or stick to the default stripped-down display in exchange for longer battery life. The element of control is a good practice by tech giants like Samsung and LG.
