Do you want to change the screen resolution from FHD+ to WQHD+ on your Galaxy S24 Ultra or S23 Ultra? If yes, then you’re at the right place. In this feature, we will show you how to change the screen resolution on Samsung devices that are running on Android version 7.0 or Android 14. All newer Samsung Galaxy devices allow you to change the screen resolution according to your own choice.
Technically speaking, screen resolution means how many pixels the screen will be able to display horizontally and vertically. For example, 2960 X 1440 resolution means that your screen will display 2960 pixels horizontally and 1440 pixels vertically. Even though most Android devices come with good resolution and pixel density today, sometimes you may need to adjust the resolution of your screen for a variety of reasons.
Using the screen resolution changer in Android intelligently can make a good difference in the overall experience of Android. As far as battery life is concerned, the benefit of lowering your screen resolution is a subject under discussion. You still have to illuminate the whole display in one hand. On the other hand, at a higher resolution, the phone will no longer have to run applications.
The most common reason is gaming. You may want to play a game occasionally, but it puts your processor under pressure and causes your game to lag. Then you can reduce your display’s resolution and pixel density to make it easier on your computer, allowing your game to function on your system perfectly. However, increasing resolution or pixel density could also increase your battery life, as most of the power usage of your computer is induced by the screen.
