Max Out the Screen Resolution on your Galaxy S9
Now that you have the amazing Samsung Galaxy S9 in hand, I think that there is no better time to try out all of its features. While some things are totally new and exciting, others may not have changed that much from the Galaxy S8 previous model and this includes the default resolution of the Super AMOLED display.
For some strange reason, Samsung insists on setting the default resolution of the Super AMOLED display to no more than FHD+ (2220 x 1080) instead of the highest setting of WQHD+ (2960 x 1440). Well, correct me if I am wrong, but I tend to believe the fact that Samsung’s reasoning is none other than the limited battery life, as a higher resolution will most likely drain your phone’s battery juice so much faster. However, the handset is new and I get a feeling that you want to get the best at the moment.
After all, the Korean company offers a beautiful 5.8-inch Infinity Display on the Galaxy S9 smartphone and even if the handset does not actually push the highest screen resolution out of the box, you still can get a much sharper screen and the clarity that you dream of.
How to Max Out the Screen resolution on your Galaxy S9:
- First of all, you’ll need to navigate to Settings or you can choose to tap the gear icon in the system tray;
- Up next, you have to tap on Display;
- Then, you need to go to Screen resolution;
- Once there, just move the slider over to the WQHD+ marker on the right. I am talking about the highest resolution available, so your screen will look sharper, but also keep in mins the fact that your battery life will take a hit by making such a change;
- As a reminder, you can always move it to HD+ (1,480 x 720) or leave it at Full HD+ if battery life ends up to matter a lot;
- Then, you need to click Apply and feel free to enjoy the maxed out higher-resolution.
