Let me assure you of the fact that while the Note 8 screen is capable of a resolution up to no less than 2960 x 1440 pixels, it comes set to 1480 x 720 by default. Changing the resolution is sometimes a must, so here we are with a great guide for that. Let me remind you that the resolution slider affects the sharpness on the screen appear — the native WQHD provides the best picture quality, but note that setting a lower resolution may improve battery life.
The default FHD+ resolution doesn’t push the display to its limits, but may provide modest battery life improvements compared to WQHD. And the jump from FHD+ to WQHD+ is more noticeable on such a large display, yet the choice is always yours to make.
So you may want to switch up to WQHD+ if you have a Note 8 phablet and if enjoying the very best possible picture quality is essential to you, but out of the question if the battery life is a must. Make a choice depending on how you use the Note 8 device.
The screen resolution option is easy to find, therefore let me be your guide once more.
