Samsung Galaxy S8+ comes with an amazing display, with a crisp 2960 x 1440 Super AMOLED panel, so I make no mistake by saying that the QHD+ AMOLED panel on the Galaxy S8 is one of the best-looking displays I have ever seen. However, by default it downscales to just 1080p. This was probably done in an effort to help reduce power consumption, yet I know that some of you noticed the difference in resolution and want to change Galaxy’s S8+ Screen Resolution.
There are three screen options on the Samsung Galaxy S8+: you can find the usual HD+ (1480 x 730), FHD+ (2220 x 1080) and the amazing WQHD+ (2960 x 1440).
So if you want to truly take advantage of the best smartphone display on the market, go into your display options and increase the resolution from 2220 x 1080 to 2960 x 1440. Like that, you can really use every pixel to its fullest potential and feel that there are no compromises on that.
Or, if you think that the top resolution is not a must, but more a battery drainer, make the change that will solve the issue on your Galaxy S8+ (well, at least a part of it since a week battery life has a serious background).
Do you need a detailed procedure on that? Let me help you:
How to Change Galaxy S8+ Screen Resolution:
- First of all, go into the Settings app on your Samsung device;
- Press on the display section;
- Under display you’ll have a variety of options including a section for brightness, the blue light filter and screen resolution. Screen resolution is the one that you are looking for this time;
- Now, simply move the blue dot over to WQHD+ (2960×1440);
- As you can see, on the far left is the lowest resolution HD option while on the right is the WQHD option, so come back here anytime you want a change.
Is it better this way? For me it is, but I am looking for your opinion too! Sound off in the comments area from below!
